Cool Tires and Rims

I need help! Just bought a 2001 Wrangler 4.0L Sport late last year. Currently has P225/75R15's which were great to get me back to Canada from Arizona, but now I want something a little bigger and a little more aggressive. It won't see a lot of off-roading but don't want to limit its ability to do so. Also thinking of a deep dish rim to offset the tires a little. Don't want to spend money on a lift kit. Anyone know the biggest tire I can go to without a lift kit, keeping in mind the deep dish will bring the tire out slightly. I'd also be willing to go to a 16". Thanks very much!

When I 1st bought my TJ it was stock height, stock rims. It had 31" tires on it & only rubbed at full steering lock. I ended up putting a 4" susp. lift on it & kept the 31" tire. It now had loads of travel, but still rubbed at full lock (and the tires looked small.) Over the winter I grabbed some 33" tires and rims with a lot more offset. Tires now never rub when turning and the Jeep also felt more stable and looked better. Hope this helps a bit.

Hi, thanks. Great info. I went to J.D. Truck Accessories and they said I can go to a 16" rim with a 1" offset and a P265/75/R16 tire. I'm not so sure as they say the tire is 32" x 10.5" x 16. But I guess if they say it can be done, they would guarantee that it doesn't rub at full lock, right?

I am pretty sure that the 1" offset would eliminate the steering rub at full lock. I do not know enought to comment on the rear tires rubbing at that size though. No that it makes a difference, what style of rim are you getting?

I should be picking up my JKUR any day now and I'm thinking of swapping the rims & tires for a 33" duratrac & 15" rim.

Anyone know who has a decent 15" rim selection? All the tire shops seem to be into the 20" bs...

I'm in Oakville, always willing to travel.
