Leveling kit with 285/55/20

Hi i'm new to the forum but not new to Jeep. I have owned 3 GC and a wrangler now i'm back to the WK2 with regular suspension NOT the QL.

So I have done searches and can not find anything on largest tires with a leveling kit. I don't want a full suspension lift. So I see a lot of folks putting 275/55/20 & 285/50/20 with no issues at stock height.
I want 285/55/20. For wheels I plan on ordering 20x9 35mm viper replicas.

any thoughts or has anyone see a similar set-up?

Re: Leveling kit with 285/55/20

This guy has staggered Viper reps but you can run a 295/45R20 all around with an ET35 replica.
Different wheels needed

You'll rub with a 285/55R20 and just a leveling kit.

So you're running a 37.4" tire then?

Re: Leveling kit with 285/55/20

I can now guarantee, a 285/55-20 will not fit without trimming the plastic around the fender. not on a leveling kit, period.

tested on 20x9 +18 Tire was 32.5"

my 275/55-20s are dead sexy, and TONS cheaper anyway

Re: Leveling kit with 285/55/20

I retract my comment about guaranteeing no fit... lol. But I still guarantee no fit with my wheel offset.
