4dr what tires for 16inch wheel?

I just bought 16 inch wheels instead of the 15 that came with my new 4dr wrangler. I am new to the 4X4 world. I live on the edge of a big city but like going out with my buddys once a month or so... maybe even the snow.

So what tire should i get? Not too big but something that gets the job done?

None of the JKs come with 15" wheels at all...

Tell us more about where you want to wheel and just how large you'd like the overall tirs to be. Your gear ratio is also part of this decision too.

Welcome to the board, btw.

Welcome to the site, amigo.
First up, as hilldweller said, there were no OEM 15" wheels on JK's. 16" was the size for base X (Sport in 2010+) models.
As for tires, if it's mainly on-road with some snow or dirt roads, go with an all-terrain tire. If you'll see SOME mud, I've heard GREAT things about the Dick Cepek FC II- check them out on Tirerack. Otherwise, if there's no mud involved, any old all-terrain will do. For price vs. performance, I am in love with the Firestone Destination AT's- GREAT on-road, decent off, although they're not great in mud, that's not what AT's are for. Been great in what little winter we've had up here in upstate NY so far.

I would not recommend a mud terrain on a city daily driver- it'll suck some more gas, cost more $, and not drive or last as well. Mark W.
