2.5 Lift Nitto Ridge Grappler 285/75r17 or 285/70r17? 11 Unlimited Automatic 3.73
I am getting ready to install a 2.5 RC spacer lift. I love the look of the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I have also seen great reviews of thier on street drivability.
My Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JKU)
is a 2011 automatic with 3.73.
The jeep will be on the road mostly for daily driving in the Chicago area(25 miles each way 35-60mph) where we get rain, light snow, deep snow, ice and dry pavement (sometimes all in the same day). Might be used for the occasionally weekend road trip ( couple hour interstate 75mph drive) also might hit a small fire trail or stuff that a stock wrangler could make it without problem (No major flexing, i don't have disconnects). I do have tow hitch and run a small 1000 lbs trailer with home supplies on it around town at times.
Trying to decide between 285/75r17 and 285/70r17 both come in C 6 ply rating?
I already have 17x9 wheels with 5 inch backspacing bs
Anyone with pictures of these sizes of tires and a 2.5 lift with these tires would be great?
If they are 4 door all the better. Side views and front and rear view on flat surface of possible.
Overall want comparing shots of both sizes on 2.5 lift.
I DONT WANT PICS OF OTHER SIZES OR BIGGER OR SMALLER LIFTS
What are the pros and cons of each?
They are about $175 difference in cost for set of 5. Is the 175 worth it for the 75'sm
Do i need a different spare tire rack for either with a stock bumper?
What type of issues may arise between each?
Does anyone have experience with these different sizes on 2007- 2011 automatic 3.73 with these sizes? How is the in town driving and interstate driving? Towing small load? Would one be better than the other for daily driving?
Please all input would be great from all who have n experience with these tires/tire sizes and set up.
RC lift and wheels are already purchased and will not be returning them.
Thanks in advance for all the help
