Stock JK with 285/75/r16 pics?

Hey everyone! I was hoping someone could post some pics of their stock jk with the above sized tires mounted on it. I will eventually get a lift but would like to get tires first. I can't afford to do it all at once. It would be a bonus if the tires were general grabbers as that's what I'm buying. My jeep does go offroad, but no crawling and nothing real harsh (mostly even ground, like driving across fields for hunting, etc) so I'm pretty sure I can get by without the lift at first. Thanks!

They will look great, but after your lift...they're going to shrink a bit!!! I ran 285's for a year and a half with stock suspension. You'll like them.

Here are some pics of my new Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs 33x12.50s on 15" MB72s. No lift no rubbing so far. I have not tried flexing it out yet as I no it will rub.

Here's my old Jeep with 285/75R16 on Cragar Soft-8 with 4.5" backspacing.


They rub at flex, even with the swaybar still connected.

And, as Paul said, they'll look smaller after the inevitable lift addition.
