35s on Stock Wheels

Been looking for pictures with 2.5" to 3.5" lifts with 35s on Stock Wheels. I actually like my stock wheels on my JK (X model with upgraded 17" wheels) and am thinking of having them powder coated to flat black.

going to lift it 2.5 to 3.5 - thinking about a 3" Rubicon Express - and add 35s to my stock wheels. I know I have to run wheel spacers - so am curious about the dangers of that on the interstate as well.

So...please post pics of your 35s on stock wheels and give how much lift you've got.

Thanks

look up Venom. He's got black Rubi rims with 35's or so I think. He didn't powercoat them, he used bedliner. It looks badass

look at my profile page....I have done 35s on 2 JKs. First one is a 2 door with a Teraflex 2.5" lift, MOAB wheels and 35s. Second JK is a 4 door with Teraflex 3" lift and 35s on MOAB wheels. I ran the 2 door as well as running the 4 door with spacers and no issues.

Good luck on your build!

I'm running 35's on same rims as urs and love them. Check out my profile pic as well as other threads I've started. I'm running 2" RE bb and coils from unlimted 4dr hardtop with 1.5" Spidertrax wheel spacers and have no probs at all. On trails, I've aired down to 17 psi with no probs.

2.5" lifts, 1.5" Spidertrax spacers on the Jeeps that have factory wheels. The tires measured just under 34" standing. If you get a BFG tire, your "35's" will measure 34":

Thanks for all the info and pictures.

Next question...with a 2.5" to 3" lift, what's the largest tire I can go WITHOUT spacers? Could I go to a 33"?

I'm confused, again. Tire time. I'm leaning toward a GY 305/70/R17, but I rather like my factory Rubi rims. Rims are 7.5 wide. GY says I need an 8.0 width. But I see lots and lots of threads where people have mounted a 12" tire on Rubi rims.

Is this wise? What am I missing here?

Yes, I know. I'd need spacers. Much less $ than 5 new rims.

If I go with the 35's on the stock rim, will I need any kind of spacer for the spare tire? Will be mounted directly to the rear swing gate for now.

Bump. If I go with 35's (12.5" width) on the stock Rubi rim, do I need a spacer of some sort for the spare? Thanks.

If you are going to use the stock tire carrier the answer is yes.

RE 3.5", 35x12.5" KM2 on stock Rubicon rims, Spidertrax spacers. Everything fits and works great, no rubbing on anything that I've noticed so far. And yes, you will need a spacer for the stock spare tire carrier.



FWIW, if you go the stock rims + wheel spacers route, it's possible to drive with 35x12.5's on the stock rims with NO wheel spacers if your local tire shop won't work on the vehicle with the wheels spacers on it.

Okay, thanks. Bummer though, as the spacers are $ 100 per set of two. I'd need three sets, leaving one unused.

Is there alternate spacer of some sort just for the spare tire mounted on the stock tire carrier to move it out a bit? Seems like I've seen something somewhere.

EDIT: Googled it. There are several out there for the JK just for this purpose. Some with third brake light relocation hardware. From pictures above, it looks like you can still see the third brake light, but just barely.
