Debating on these two tires.
275/75/18 (33.2 , 10.8w)
Or
285/65/18 (32.6, 11.2w)
Wheels wkll be 18x9
Recommendation?
Will one drive better then the other?
Pictures of this set up?

not on a wrangler but on another vehicle i have had both and prefer the 275 70 18 over the 285 65 18. The 285's were definetly visual wider but also seemed to be visually shorter as well. The 285's felt significantly heavier and tended to get worse gas mileage but that could be any number of things not solely the tires fault. If the wheels you chose have a negative offset i think that would help offset the "pizza cutter" look some dislike with narrower tires. The offset gives it that more aggressive stance which visually to me makes the tire look less narrow.

Going with -12 offset
