No you'll be lucky to fit 31" without lift.

Yes it is possible, first you need some sort of armor to open your wheel wells up. Like Metalcloak set, Genright, AtozFab, Poison Spyder. And you can run 33's with no lift. You can take a stock TJ add the full Metalcloak set and run 35's no lift.

Nope. Even with a body lift I rubbed 33s really well

What you can 'put on' and what you can 'drive with' are two different things.
I have 31's with no lift and it rubs at full twist on the trails.
33's is pushing the limit. They may fit, but you'll scratch up or ruin your tires as you hit bumps and turn and stuff. Just be aware that you will have adverse effects without any lift.

You need to add a washer or two to your steering stop. Your scrubbing is caused by the width of the tire (and/or wheel backspacing), not really the diameter of the tire.

Thats not completely true.
The larger diameter the wheel the closer the wheel will be when you turn the steering wheel to the frame/inner fender.

Agreed, I could have written that better.

I'm running 235/75R15's on my YJ. My springs aren't flat, and I rub & scrub them on the trails.

To solve rubbing while turning, add a washer or two under the steering stop bolt.

Otherwise, different rims with more backspacing would also probably work. 3.75" is ideal backspacing.

No, they don't rub inside. They rub the tops of the fenders while flexing.

I was meaning that, it depends on how you flex. Since I am running such a small tire, and already rub compared to some people, etc.

Thanks all.


Another question I need answer myself is how practical these tires are for general road use. I am looking to upgrade and get beefier wheels but I've read these particular tires wear easily when road driven a lot.

Yes, they are soft and will wear very quickly.
You should consider something different for a daily driver honestly, but its your goat man.

Yeah I think I will. Ill heed the warning signs and choose something different. Anyone got any suggestions? Something beefy and manly but is road/Tarmac friendly as well and doesn't cost an arm and a leg

BFG AT tires, a 30" tire will be plenty large enough. Trim the flares a bit and you will be alright, though I highly recommend to at the very least get a shackle lift on it.

Here is a 1" shackle lift, no track bars, swaybar disconnected, 29" tires:





You can see the passenger front tire is rubbing the flares. That's also the most you can lift it without extending the brake lines, they will snap with any more lift.

I agree for BFG A/Ts or General AT2s.
I have run 3 sets of BFG ATs and 1 set of general AT2s. And I have had great wear from all of them.

I have them too. Amazing road tires. Get caked in mud pretty easily but still not bad at all

That they do, but they clear out very well for an A/T tire. I don't have many complaints about them. Especially if you take care of them, and keep them rotated, etc.

Went mudding with them and they actually were awesome. Didnt get stuck once and they had some deep ruts and stuff. Highly satisfied.
