2001 Wrangler couple of tire questions
When we bought the Wrangler it had stock steel rims, and it still does, there are no mods to the body,or frame, 2.5 eng with an auto trans. When we first got the Jeep it had 215/75-15's on it. I wanted bigger tires so I put 235/75-15's on it. Well I finally got around to reading eth entire owners manual today and I found out after looking on the Jeep itself that it originally came with 205/75-15's
I currently get about 200 miles on a tank of gas, and she'll get up to 55 but I don't win any races.
My question is since the jeep originally had 205's on it did I change anything when I put the 235's on it?
With eth 215's I got 260 miles to a tank, but I really want to keep a decedent looking tread on the tires, not some street tread since summer is coming and I'd really like to go back in eth woods again.
Should I go back to 215's? Or are the 235's ok?
I am finally on board with obama's hope and change thing. I now HOPE
that when its all over I have at least a little CHANGE
