like that look alot Swanny - are they slightly more narrow than most seem to be running? I had some skinnies on my JK for awhile and loved them.
Yeah they are I wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to rub as when I lifted mine it was still early in the game and not a lot of info. I will be upgrading soon to 37s

I was thinking of those with a 2 inch mopar lift - you think they are wide enough with that lift? Looking for height primarily, not width. I have wider tires on my 2008 JK and while they look great, made it more sluggish than my pizza cutters. This new one will replace my JK as a DD with about 1% of my available time on mild trails/dirt roads. mostly NY snow on back roads is my "off road"

Having a hard time with this. Can I fit these tires on JL Sport with factory rims without wheel spacer. I do plan on get 2.5 spacer lift. I’m hearing yes and no. Wasn’t sure if that size tire would clear.

Just did that set up, but with 315s. I’ll get a little bit of a rub with a full turn. I adjusted the steering stops and it helped. No Wheel spacers. You should be good with 305. I had a hard time find out the same question.
