Just ordered a set of five Toyo A/T III (M/S) in the 35x11.50R17 flavor. Factory specs allow for mounting on a 17x7.5” wheel, so I will keep my stock Rubicon wheels. Got them for $265/each on Simpletire.com. Found a local shop to mount and balance for $100.

Also ordered a 1.5/1.0 suspension spacer set from Traxda.

I’ll post photos when finished.

As promised. Toyo AT3s in 35x11.50R17. Installed a 1.5/1.0 Traxda lift kit to level out the Jeep and maintain stock wheel well spacing. Lift is mild enough where no extended sway bar links are needed. Steering geometry isn’t affected enough to need corrections.

Drives great. Tires are about the same as the stock BFG KO2s but slightly larger. Actual height mounted and inflated to 37psi is 34”

Absolutely. I’ve had them on for about 6k miles now and two wheeling trips. Holding up well and great on snow, ice, rain and all conditions. Like them as much as the BFG KO2s. More aggressive tread pattern is a little noisier on highways but not terrible.

Does the spare fit on the stock tire carrier? I also have a JLUR in white. But I have the steel bumpers.

Yes. Spare fits just fine without the need for spacers, longer bump stops or anything. About 1/2” of space to the stock plastic bumper.

I wonder what the difference is, if any, between the steel and plastic rear bumper as far as the spare tire cut out.

I ended up going with the Nitto Trail Grappler 35”x11.5”x17” tires mounted on an ICON Rebound 8.5”x17” rim. The wheels offer a 4.5” backspace and a -6mm offset. The tires have a C sidewall rating which I think will yield a softer ride. Here are a few pics of the wheel and tire combo!
Any adjustment to the spare tire carrier or it fit fine stock?
