    Any issues with 305/70/17s?

    Jeep newbie here, looking for opinions. Wanting to see if using the stock gearing of 3.45 will cause any issues with having 305/70/17s on it. I know I値l be losing some power and mpg, and I plan on putting on a 2 to 2 and 1/2 inch lift along with speedo calibrating. I知 on relatively flat land here in the south, 98 percent of inclines are on a highways. Other than the obvious losses of some power and mpg, anything else I should be concerned about?

    I'm running that size in a Nitto Terra G. You will have to remove aero bumper things and will lose about half of your 8th gear. They will fit at full disconnected flex with out a lift.IMG_20180901_120550.jpg

    How痴 it as a daily driver? I usually do about 20 miles round trip to work and back in the city with a few lights and stops.

    No drivability issues. Small hit on mileage but it's a Jeep and still delivers excellent smiles per gallon.
