Yes I got my tires in that size! I’ve aired them down to 10 and driven on some dunes and had no issue. I keep them at about 37-40psi and they sit great on my Jeep. Here are some photos from this Sunday!

My Jeep (Calypso) is still stock except for the 285/70/17 tires, headlights, brake lights and some other minor details. Still flexes pretty well with some added crunching of the fender liners. Almost forgot! I added some 2” wheel spacers and after installing them I noticed a horrible scraping caused by the tire rubbing against the windjammers above the front bumper..

I ..so I suggest removing them before or after getting larger tires to ensure they don’t interfere with any suspension or other components. Hope this helps and I’d love to hear what tires you’re looking at!
Thanks so much, super helpful! Love the tires (and the Jeep, it looks exactly like my son's!).

Thanks! I love seeing other Jeeps like mine on the road (and especially trails!). I hope to get some new fenders and liners to improve clearance and make it more unique!

35’s on factory Rubicon wheels, 1.5” leveling spacers. Perfect for what I need!
