show me your tires!

i searched but couldnt really find what i was looking for or pictures. I have a 2017 jku and i want to keep it stock height, ill eventually regear but for now i want to see what it will look like. Im looking at

295/70r17 trail grapplers
305/70r17 ridge grapplers

and just for the heck of it if you have a stock height jeep with narrow fenders or no fenders at all i want to see what you guys are running and how they look! i just know i think the look of a jk with the fender delete and well sized tires look awesome! id love to do 35s but they may be to much to bear til i can do a regear with 3.21s. it is my DD but i wanna take it and enjoy it on the weekends with some mild trails. any pictures yall got like this let me see!

Not great pics, but my wife's old Jeep with 295/70r17 Trail Grapplers before the lift went on.

Man those 295s look good, the only thing I'm afraid of is when I take the fenders off or narrow them either way if they'll still look as full and beefy as they do like that. Picking kills me cause sometimes even 285s look huge and beefy and I think they look perfect but then sometimes I even see 305s that make we wish I could just dish the money out to regear and do 35s lol. But that's what I'm hoping to figure out finally with enough evidence.

Yeah if that's what it's called, lol, see I do love 315s I just am afraid they'll be to sluggish with only 3.21s what gears do you have and how do they perform?

I've got the 3.21 and it's tolerable, but I'll definitely be upgrading eventually...

I know it's not specifically what you asked, but I'd say a 33 inch or so would look good with no lift and cut fenders. I had them with a 1.5 inch leveling kit and they looked a tad small with the cut fenders from the side. Also depends on what tire you get and if they are true to the size when mounted.

I have the 3.21 as well. Was averaging 12.9 mpg around town with 63lb 33's. Now with 73lb 35s it's closer to 12 mpg.

Thank you, I received these last October just before my trip to Sema and Logandale for an event. They hold up very well and do great here In the aggressive Arizona desert.
