35 x 12.5 on 17's

Does anyone have pictures of there truck on 35's with 17's rims. I am thinking of doing a 3" body lift now. I just want to get away from 16's because the tire load ratings.
Suggestions on rims would be great too.

What my truck looks like right now.


Thanks

This is a pic of the rear, just to give you an idea. Don't feel like crawling under the front of the truck right now.

Honestly I don't remember lol. They might be 17x9s...but either 17x9 or 17x10, same thing pretty much. They do stick out a bit..I just forgot all that information. My set of 15x10s stick out like...2.5 inches further

Nice jeep! I'm looking at going to load D. I have load E right now. I'm am thinking of going with 17x10 but I'm not sure what offset to go with. I do want them to stick out somewhat though. What would you guys go with?

Like I said, I'm pretty sure 15's won't work up front. My truck also came stock with 16's. It is a tight fit with 16's now.

15's are a little picky on the 03+ 4x4 rotors. And judging by that rear caliper pic Brian posted, looks picky back there for '10+ trucks too. All steelies will clear with flying colors. It's the aluminum ones that sometimes are questionable. You don't really hear of folks having fitment issues with 03+ 4x4's and 15's. Back in the day you used to hear it all the time... newer the wheels, the better they typically clear. Best idea: test fit.

My truck came with 16's too. My personal experience with 15's and the larger brakes is tires. I've been chasing tire balance issues and the amount of weight they stuck me with did brush against the caliper nearly every time. No big deal though....take a grinder to the caliper and she'll clear just fine.






BACK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND! lol.

Not 17's, but here's 18's to get an idea.




The problem I constantly have is finding 17's in a backspace I like. Options aren't really there in this bolt pattern of ours. Ty is running wheel spacers. But from your earlier comment, sounds like the backspace/offset options out there are perfect for ya.

15s should work front and rear. I've had 15x8 steelies and 15x10 aluminum and havent had any issues.

Well I have been looking around on the web, found these that I am interested in. Now my question is will they bolt up and will they stick out some? Please bare with me, I'm a noob when it comes to offest's on rims.

Yay or nay lol

Those have a pretty deep backspacing (4.75")...so they will be 'sucked' in a fair amount.
