There's a 285/75-17 that's roughly 34"x11" as well. I'm running them on stock wheels on my Sport S Max Tow with the Mopar 2" lift.
Not worth it to me for a 1/2" of axle clearance.

Not coming from a Rubicon, no. I gained 1.5" coming from stock sport s tires. I didn't want to have to buy wheels, so this was the largest I could appropriately go on a 7.5" wide wheel.

I bought 285s as well, and one of the reasons was to save some money in reusing the stock rims,while also getting better tires in a larger size. So far i love it...

Do your wheels make you have a wider stance?

Yes

18x9 -12 offset

I’m thinking of switching to 18x9 0 offset, which would pull the tire shoulder towards the fender half an inch

also been eyeing those 37x11.5R18’s for a couple months

Here are a couple. Sorry for the delay. Had been buried in 3 feet of snow.

Judging by these pictures, it doesn't look as if the mud flaps are doing too good of a job. The only reason I am bringing this up is that I just got a set of the WeatherTech mud flaps in and haven't installed them yet. Can you let me know if they are any good before install?? Thanks.

35x12.50 bfg MTS on stock wheels fit great under the max tow fenders with a 2” front spacer.

37x11.50x18 Ridge Grappler on stock 7.5” wide Overland rims w/ 1.5” wheel spacers and Mopar 2”. Switched from 35x12.50x18 because I like the tires under the flares and the military look. The 12.50 just didn’t look right on a 7.5” rim for my taste.

Requested the 37x11.50r17 in trail grappler at the Nitto site. Seems like a no-brainer to offer this size. Maybe someone will see there is a market.
