Tires for 2" lift.

I'm getting my Rocky Mountain lifted Monday with 2" RE. I have already put some 1.25" spacers on it. I am torn between 32.1150.15 and 33.1250.15 tires. To me the 32's are about right for the fenders and height but part of me still wants 33's. What do yall think?

Re: Tires for 2" lift.

Just my observation, but if you say you've already put 1.25 spacers on the coils.. somethings wrong the front seems to have more of a rake then normal or could be the camera angle.. But in my option looks like if you put either 32 or 33's this would be extremely close to the front fender. Plus assuming the gear ratio is around 3.21 or so.. putting a 2 inch on the jeep would drop or throw out any fuel savings. I mean just lifting the jeep is one thing, but making sure you lift it correctly without causing undue strain is another.

No. I put wheel spacers on the jeep. Not coil spacers. I will try to go back and clarify. This picture was taken before the wheel spacers.

The 1.25 refers to wheel spacers.

It has the Dana 44 rear with 3.73. I know I'm gonna lose some power but fuel mileage isn't that great in the first place.

Re: Tires for 2" lift.

Keeping the same wheels?.. or something a bit beefy?. Personally I would go 32's but hey this is a new area for me and we may end up leaving the jeep as is once purchased, depending on what Jeep we get.. if it's the 75th. we would change a thing.. But something like the freedom or lesser (Sport S) we may opt for large tires and a few customizations. a couple of sites that's helped us in the past is wheel-size.com and tacomaworld.com/tirecalc both offer an online system to check for back spacing and offset, wheel size and tire size.. check into those sites before passing judgment.

Yeah I like the Ravines so I'm gonna keep them. From what I have read I have just enough backspacing for 33's when you include the wheel spacers of course. I'm not gonna do any serious off reading. Just a little dirt roading. I mainly just like a little beefier look.

Re: Tires for 2" lift.

I run 33"s (well 32.75") BFG KO2's on my JK which has a 2.5" Teraflex spring lift with Bilstein 5100 shocks. The KO2's have great road manners and are also really good off road (no serious rock crawling but plenty of rocks and trails). With the wheel spacers you are fine with 33"s and a 2-2.5" lift.

Mine with the lift and 33's.

It should be noted that the OP has a TJ and that things aren't necessarily the same.

I went the 32's. With the 2" lift and 32's it gave me a little over 3" lift overall. I'm happy with it. It looks like a Jeep now.
