Good news! I can help you figure out which chains will best suit your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with BF Goodrich LT 305/65 R17 mud terrain tires.

For you it will depend on if you are planning on off-roading with these chains on or just using them on the road in snowy conditions since wider tires tend to have a more difficult time getting traction in the snow. The diamond pattern will give you front to back and side to side traction, while the ladder style only provides front to back traction. I recommend Titan Diamond Pattern Chains # TC2536 if you are just doing the everyday regular road travel. If you are planning on off-roading and have the clearance I would recommend the Titan Heavy Duty Alloy Chains # TC3229SCAM. If you end up going with the ladder style of chains we highly recommend using these with a chain adjuster # TCMA2 to help the chains fit tight to the tire and maintain tension to the chains.

I took a look at your owners manual and have attached an image of the portion that talks about tire chains. Since your tires are not listed as the size mentioned that are recommended for SAE Class S chains, it's still not a bad idea to measure and figure out how much clearance you do have.

I have attached a link to all the chains that will fit your size of tire, some of our Help Articles to determine clearance, and videos of the two different styles of chains for your convenience.
