JKU 285/70/17 vs 305/65/17

I know this topic as been beaten to death. However, I have searched and Googled and searched some more for pics of a JKU with stock wheels and no lift running these sizes. Most pics are of aftermarket wheels and some kind of lift or leveling kit. Most people say they have 33's, 34's, 35's.... I know the diameter I would like to stay around, but it's the width I'm concerned about. I dont want to go with the 285/70/17s and wish I would have went with the wider (305/65/17) tires to compensate for the JKU being longer. Which is still taking some getting used to. I would like to keep the stock wheels because they match everything else on my new Freedom Edition.

If anyone would be so kind as to post pics of a JKU with stock wheels, NO lift, and either of these tire sizes. If you are using spacers with the 305/65/17s, please post the size spacers. Please state what size tire the pic is displaying...

Thanks and sorry for making another thread on this topic....

You are talking about an inch difference in width.

The closet I found was of a Teraflex leveling kit, BFG A/T KO's 305/65/17, and Spidertrax Wheel Spacers.





I like the look of the wider tire on a JK.

Thanks for pics. I have actually been staring at yours for a while and love the way it looks. I originally decided on the 285s until I saw yours with the 305s.

Well, I can't claim that jeep, I just found the pics on the web. Glad it helped you make your decision. My jeep is below:

Two thumbs up on your Jeep, super BA bro!!! Mine will get there eventually but trying to keep from putting a lift on just yet. She's only 3 weeks old and want to prevent warranty discrepancies. Thanks again for posting those pics.
