34" Nitto Ridge Grappler on Fuel Beast Jeep JK

This post is a series of pictures showing the Nitto Ridge Grappler 305/70-R17 Tires on 17"x9" Fuel "Beast" Rims.  The below images show the Nitto Ridge Grappler 30/70R17 rubber tires on 17x9 Fuel Beast Wheels on a 2011 2 Door Jeep JK Wrangler in Cosmos Blue.  They Nitto Ridge Grapplers are roughly 34" tires and I find to be a great alternative to traditional 35"s on a Jeep JK.  They are nicer than the standard 33 (which often measure less than 33), but not as aggressive as the full 35s.  I find this setup to be a perfect combo on modern JK.

Above is more pictures of the Fuel Rims with Nitto Tires installed on a Wrangler Sport 2 Door Model JK.

Some more information.
The Fuel Beasts are a "Dark Tint" color.  It's pretty sharp looking; and is a good deviance from the typical black rims everyone is sporting nowadays.  The color itself I would describe as a lighter shade of brake dust, but that's not a bad thing.  They aren't very "flashy" so you don't look like a total mall-crawler; but they aren't as plain as the AEV Pintler Wheels that everyone seems to be buying.

I have the Fuel Offroad D564 Beast 17x9 with 5" backspacing installed on a 2.5" lift.  I did not require spacers for the setup.
These installed tires (at 35PSI) are Nitto Ridge Grappler 305-70R17
They measure in at just about 34" flat to flat, but when the weight of the Jeep is on them, I'd say they come in just a hair under that measurement.    They really are a nice looking tire; as they look almost as aggressive as a mud terrain.  That being said, their road manner is amazing; extremely quiet and comfortable.   I've not yet had the Ridge Grapplers off road, so can't report on that yet.   They do just fine in the rain on my Jeep JK.    The Nitto Ridge Grapplers have two sides to the sidewall.  One has more "lugs" than the other if you want a slightly toned-back look.
