Hi All - I was looking for pics of 285/75/17 tires and stock sport S wheels before I bought these, so I figured I’d post mine. I’ve got a 2.5 inch lift and the tires are Falken Wildpeak AT3ws.

Really digging the look of these.

Looks great! Seems like you have tons of room between the bumper/spare tire too, did you relocate or change the bracket?

Welcome to the forum!

Looks awesome.

I’m always amazed how little work Wranglers need to look great.

Do you think 2.5 inch lift would look good with 285/70?

Hey - I was thinking about going with 285/70/17s but I'm glad I went with the 75s. I think it's a nice compromise vs going with 35s.

Not sure if this helps, but my cousin has a 4XE Rubicon with stock tires and Rubicon suspension. This is what our Jeeps look like side-by-side. The stock Rubicon suspension sits lower than a 2.5" lift, but is still higher than the stock Sport S. I think the pictures does show the difference between 70s and 75s.

I bought someone's stock 4XE Rubicon Suspension and installed onto my Sport S and gained 2.5 at the rear and 2 at the front.
I was shocked and my wife was... Let's just say "Shocked as well" 😁
