Bigger Tires

Hi, currently running stock 17" JKU rims with 33s on my 2011 JKU with a 2.5" TeraFlex lift. Looking to go up to 35" tires, can I run those on stock rims without spacers or is that something I'm going to need to have? Thanks in advance for the wisdom!

you will need spacers. Northridge4x4 has Synergy 1.5 spacers. using the forum discount 2 pairs can be had for less than 140 bucks.

it all depends on your setup(bumper, tire width, etc...).
With stock rims I believe you will hit your sway bar, but adding spacers you may rub the stock bumper.
