JK Tires

So I don't know where people get information about tires but everything I have read says not to try 35's without a lift. Well I have a 2012 Unlimited and I just got 35's put on and the only thing that rubbed was the plastic piece under the front bumper, which with a little triming does not rub any more. So for anyone out there I have proof 35's will fit with NO lift. I do plan on a lift but just got the tires first. I have Nitto Trail Grapplers.

37s fit with no lift too....

Aren't you rubbing at full turn though? And aren't speed bumps just owning you?

Bengal can you put some pics up please. I have a buddy that wants my rubi rims and tires and I'm gonna upgrade soon. I might pull the trigger today and place the order.

Here's my JKU running 35's and no lift (yet). I also have bushwacker flat fenders. I also cut down the rubi rails and cut the pinch seam.

Go offroad and flex the suspension. I bet something will rub.

That'll probably hit going over railroad tracks or a speed bump above 5mph.

This has to be a troll post from the jk-forum crowd. No one is this stupid.

OP, if you are really that stupid, please go out and flex your suspension a couple of times, then post pics of what your Jeep looks like with the fenders ripped off of it.

As soon as he flexes, those rear flares are gone.

Yup, loosen off your swaybar connections on the front and give it to her! You'll be alright....

...RRRRIIIIIIPPPPP!!!!...


Also, there is a big difference between running "no lift 35's" and "flat flares and trimmed pinch seams with 35's" - though I wouldn't do either.

No doubt 35's with no lift will rub flexed but they can be run for street use (even speed bumps and railroad tracks) until a lift is bought. I don't think anyone here plans on running 35's without lift for very long...just long enough to afford the perfect lift

Interesting...From all my research on here I figured the best way to run 35" was with a 2.5" lift and flat fenders (keeping a low COG) I planned on the 2.5 RK max travel lift. Is this not enough?

Running 295/70 17 (~33.4x12) Nitto Terra Grapplers. Bushwacker flat fenders. Hanson front and rear bumpers and a 9000 lbs Warn winch. Got 1.5" spring spacer on the front the level it out. 3/4" is all you need stock, but to accommodate the added weight from the bumper and winch I needed a little extra.

I took these flex shots a while ago... sitting on the bump stop on the rear, I had maybe 1/4" before my rear tires rubbed the fender flares in the inside of the wheel well.

I know a friend running 35s and no lift. No rub whatsoever. He has some kind of fender, but I'm not sure what. He also cut the pitch seem.

here's mine...

2.5" of lift is enough if the bump stops are the correct length.
