Tire selection

Another tire thread!! Purchased some Fuel Revolver wheels 17x9 for my 4dr 12 JKU Rubi auto. Going to use the stock tires until I wear them out. What would be a good replacement tire for when I'm ready? Jeep will have a leveling kit. Other then that, it's a DD with trips up to 500 miles and wheeling will be moderate trails. I would like to go 35's but don't want to re gear and all that. From all the research, everyone suggests re gearing with 35's and adding gussets yada yada. Is all that necessary??? New to all this and want to enjoy the sport and still get around. Thanks!!

based on your 12 Rubi Auto
regear necessary: No, unless you want to drag race
beefed up axles: recommended especially reinforcement of the C's but not absolutely necessary
