Default Wheels/tires

Hey,
so I am new to all this stuff and I have recently got a 2018 JK 2 sport and I am looking at some procomp wheels that have a 4.75 BS with -6mm offset and wonder what tire would be good for daily driving as well as some trail driving. 35".
they are procomp series 7069 17x9.
I will be installing a 2.5" coil spacer kit on the JK.

I'd suggest a 33x12.50 or 35x12.50 tire.

They typical BS for a 35x12.50 tire is going to be 4.5". You can probably squeak by with 4.75" BS, but may or may not have some rubbing under full lock or articulation depending on tire and how you use the jeep off road. I only mention it since you haven't purchased yet and might want to reconsider.

would a 315/70R17 be fine?
for the style of wheel I want there isnt a lot of options. The picture is the style I like.

thank you for the help!

Yes, a 315/70-17 is basically a 35x12,50 tire. A lot of times companies will use the floatation sizes for the tires with a heavier load rating. If you look at the tire manufacturers websites you will see the heights and widths of the two sizes are almost identical.

I have these wheels and run a Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 315/75R16 tire with zero problems. I have a 2.5" lift and I cut my stock fenders into flat fenders.
