Tire Help Please

I am going to be putting on some new rubber soon and need some help. I want to go alittle wider and the same height. Does anybody know what size that would be? On a tire chart I saw a 305/40/20, but knowbody makes that size? Thanks!

Would a 315/35/20 fit? Would it look too small with the smaller sidewalls?

That should work fine, and go with a 40 sidewall on the front.

Is your Jeep stock height or lowered? Most of us are running around on 315/35/20 rear and 275/40/20 fronts with no issues. There can be a touch of rubbing on the passenger rear back fender wall. I just trimmed mine.

Stock height, but not for long... So I should be able to run the 315/35/20 all the way around?

I just put new Nittos on and these are the tire sizes I went with, look great from behind and I didn't have any issues with rubbing, even with the Eibach lowering kit. (not saying it can't happen, just saying I don't have any rubbing issues) This is the size combo I'd go with.
