    Tire question

    Hey everyone, have a tire question. I have the stock tires on my Sport, 255 75 17, no lift. I wanted to get new tires but with a little more rubber on the ground, the place near me has Coopers, AT3 at 285 70 17. I measured them against my stock tires and they are an inch higher and a few inches wider. Would I have any issues with rubbing when I turn the wheel? Does anyone have them on theirs?

    I'd appreciate any feedback or alternate suggestions on this, thanks.

    You will most likely rub on hard turns. You could get 1 1/4" spacers or 1 1/2".

    This was my wife's with 285/70R17 with no lift but trimmed the fenders and an aftermarket front bumper. No issues rubbing at all but we don't disconnect off-road.

    If you're not going to lift, just get the stock rubicon size- 255 something?

    35s no lift until recently. No problem, I trimmed fenders and pinch seam to ensure no problems occur but you are even going smaller than 35/315s so might not be needed. Id atleast take care of the fenders tho. Picture is of my jeep with 35s no lift and aluminum tube fenders.20180530_080113.jpg

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
