I left the suspension stock. No problems and running great almost a year later.
Thanks for this post! I've also been researching tires for about 8 hours in the past couple of days. Finally settled on BFG KO2s 285/70/17 Load C and the Fuel Ammo Anthracite w/Black Ring 17x9 for my Black 2018 JLU.

Curious what PSI you are filling to?

JLUS 2.0L Auto transmission here:

I went with P rated 265/70R17 Falken Wildpeak AT3W's for my sport, they were very nice with the stock suspension, no speedo adjustment needed and MPG stayed approx. the same as with the stock tires.

However, since I lifted the Jeep 2.5" now they are too small (IMO)...

So, that said, you might want to think about if you will be installing a lift. If you will be installing a lift, then go with the 285/70R17's and get your speedo recalibrated. Look for Rubicon takeoffs, either the KO2's or Wildpeak's (I would avoid the E rated tires if I were you).
Do you have pictures of before and after the lift?

Here's my Sport S with 285/70/17 Pathfinder AT's from Discount. They are E rated but I run them a little lower 32-35 psi and I think they're fine, super quiet on the road too. Next up is a Rubi takeoff for shocks/springs and new wheels
