Thanks guys... I really didn't think I could go with a much bigger tire without replacing the wheels.
I'd like to ask a follow-up question... Any tire recommendations? I'm in New Jersey, spend my time on mostly local roads, and want the tires to do well in the winter snow as well. On occasion, will take Jeep up to 60 or 65 on highway.
I am doing fine with my 4" lift kit and am using a 1" transmission drop. I have no issues at all with the lift and vibration. If I get bigger tires, may I need to go with an SYE, or only if I add to the lift kit? Also, with my stock axle and roads and snow to deal with, are there any real axle issues I should be concerned with? I'd like to assume any warnings I've seen about larger tires and axle damage are really related more to off-roading and hard use. If I need to, I can strengthen the axle with a kit.
