What is the max tire size I can install on my 2008 JK rubicon if I put a 2" spring lift on?

Yes you can run 35in tires with a 2in lift, and they say you can fit 37in tires with tube fenders..

ABSOLUTE maximum would be 37s. you would have to run extended bumpstops, trim your fenders, pinch seams, and adjust your steering stops. wouldnt have much flex off road assuming you wheel it

I know with the Rock Krawler 2.5 Stock Mod kit you can run 37's with flat fenders and proper bumpstops. With a Rough Country I would say 35's are the max. Alot also depends on the tires your gonna run some 37's actually measure out to 35"-36"

Hope this helps.
