So would you guys go 31 / 32 / or 33's on this LJ?

Currently has a 2" OME lift with 30" tires. Willing to add a body lift to clear 33's if needed.

Honestly it's really just an esthetic thing for me, as even the 30" tires do what I need them to.

But the 30's just look too small with the lift on there.

Here’s mine with an OME lift, 1-1/4” bodylift with 33x10.50’s on stock TJ rims. In my opinion it looks stock.
If you want an LJ to look like a proper wheeler, 37’s are the way to go

I like the look of my 33x12.50s I think I could fit 35’s with no issue but as little as I drive it, these have a loooong way to go before I’ll be needing any replacements

I have 285/75/16 which are like 33x10.5 (I think) I think look too small, but I like the look of this Jeep with the 12.5" wide tire, that is the way I'm going next!

Do the Metal Cloaks actually give you more clearance compared to just a flat fender flare?

I've heard some say yes and other say no.

What width are you running on the tire @Neal ?

Now you guys have me wanting 35's.

I've never run flat flares, so I can't say from my own experience that my MC flares give me more clearance (I'll leave that to the marketing people at MC). I will say that they give me all the clearance I need, even before I installed the lift, as the photo below shows. After the lift things got even better. My Goodyear MT/R's are 35 x 12.5/15's on 15 x 8 MB Razor alloy wheels.

May want to consider aftermarket wheels if you’re going with something wider than a 10.5
