Thanks! They are the at2's at 265/65/18. No lift on it but the front has been leveled up 2 inches.

I believe it's a 31.6 inch tire. Almost a 32. I get slight rubbing up front if I'm turning into an upward slope.

On the topic of the thread, I've ordered my lightbar and received shipping confirmation—it should be delivered this week.

I'll see if I can get the Rhino Pioneer mounting brackets delivered this week too and get the bar mounted up to be wired potentially when the Jeep goes in for a service next week. I'll write up my experience installing with photos etc for anyone who is interested.

Thanks mate—they're actually plastidipped using the 'Anthracite Grey' colour with a single coat of the plasti 'Glossifier' on them. They're not a completely matte colour, I would describe them as having just a little bit of a satin finish to them. I wanted something just a little bit different to the usual completely blacked out look but still had a 'potentially factory' feel to it. I have about 10,000km life left in my original tyres at which point I'm going to try and line up to have them powdercoated when I get some new rubber—colour will be close to the plasti Anthracite colour.
