    Nice! And a little taller/wider than the 35x12.5. :like:

    LOL! It was not until after I ordered them that I figured out the taller bit. I wanted the width, but I was "cool! 34.6 is less than 35, so perfect!" What genius decided that 35" tires should't be, well, 35" tall? :facepalm: Anyhow, in the end, they are perfect. No rubbing, and the cornering is spectacular. :rock:

    Hey @Dr Kel I gotta agree with @jrf that’s quite a bolt pattern. Looks like it takes 10 lug nuts. How does that work when the time only has 5 lug nuts? Scratching my head wondering how that works. Love to see some up close pictures of the lug nuts once you have the wheels installed. Nice looking wheels.

    I'm assuming there are two bolt patterns there so it can fit different vehicles with the same wheel. I've seen that done with other wheels....

    Do you have a side profile shot by chance? Really curious to see what a +18 looks like on a max tow. What size tire?

    35x12.50-17. Wheel is KMC KM717 17x8.5 with +18 offset. I was actually expecting it to stick out further than this so I'm surprised after all the tire and wheel calculators i used to confirm positioning, plus factoring in the supposed "wider max tow axles"....i see no difference. Either way, i dig it much more than the goofy looking set ups where you see half the tire sticking out.

    Tire poke is highly subjective and all in the eye of the beholder. Like those horrible angry eye grilles.

    IMO, your offset is absolutely perfect. This is how I want mine to look. Thank you for the pictures.

    How are the 35's working with the Overland 3.73 gears?
    Sure looks nice.

    I am looking at the JKS lift myself. Which one and size did you go with? How does it ride?

    There is currently only one JKS lift for the Gladiator it's 3" for Rubicon or 3.5" for sport (same lift). It rides great I ordered with the Fox shock upgrade and added front upper and lower adjustable control arms with it. I think its sits perfect and drives great.
