?What tires for my new lift?

Just got a 3' rancho lift kit for my jku and am looking to buy a new set of tires. I want to go with 35's but I dont really want to spend hundreds of more $$ for a tuner,regearing and all that stuff. If i went with 33's would I have to regear or adjust the speedometer? Im just trying to find a good cost effective way to get some bigger tires.

WTF did you waste money on a 3" lift if you just want to run 33's?
BTW tuner, gears, ect will cost thousands not hundreds.

Some build info here:

Probably don't need gears but you will need a aev procal or flashcal to recalibrate everything. Searching around the forum will help as well

If you have 3.73, just run 35s. You don't need all that fancy stuff, it'll just be a little sluggish out of the hole. Try it, and you can always regear later on.

I have a 2013 JK with a 4" lift running 35's. I purchased a Bullydog GT and recalibrated for the tires. I have 3:21 gears and it will not maintain speed in 5th or 6th gear using cruise control. I am switching to 4:56 gears to restore acceleration and maintain speed in 5th & 6th gears while keeping my rpm's in the 2600 range.
Rubitrux.com has some good info on tire size/gear ratio = rpm's.

For what you have going on stick to the 35s, and get a AEV Procal or Superchips FlashCal. Both are programmers, not tuners, that allow you to set tire size, gear ratio etc.

If your looking for tire recommendations, I'm a Toyo fan over here
