325/65/18 - on stock 2013 Sahara rims?

Thinking about putting 325/65/18 Duratracs (34.6" according to GY specs) tires on the stock Saraha rims (2013 MY)? (the 'sparkle' rims as Jeep calls them!)
Looking to put Duratracs on with a 2.5 lift and 1.5 spacers.

Trying to decide if I want to go that large or slightly smaller 295/65 (33.1 according to GY specs) I understand the specs may not be real world once mounted.

I have the 3.73 gears with auto tranny - will there be a noticeable 'drop' in power/pick up when going to the 34.6" tires? I like the 'power' now and concerned about any 'loss of power'. Looks like the Duratracs are each 22lbs heavier than the stock pizza cutters

Appreciate any input. - and any pictures of the 2013 18" rims with the larger tires.

Anyone in the Sterling/Asburn/Herndon etc .. area that I can take a look at in person?

Re: 325/65/18 - on stock 2013 Sahara rims?

Going from stock to 35's (34.6") you will notice a drop in performance and fuel economy. Maybe not as bad with the 3.6L and 5-speed A/T, but you will feel it. Stock to 33's you probably won't. And it's really not so much about the weight of the tires, but the bigger circumference. It won't be a huge difference, but you'll still notice it. A buddy of mine with a 2013 w/ A/T and 4.10s (Rubicon) put 35's on his and noticed his fuel economy drop to about 13 mpg. But he may have a lead foot, too.

Trying to decide if I want to go to 33's or 35's. The Duratracs 33's are 1inch taller and 2 inches wider. Is it worth the $$$$ ??? Is there a noticeable visual difference going between the stock 32's to the 33's?
