On my 01 TJ I had a trailmaster 2 inch lift and was able to run 32 x11.5 with a 15 x 10 rim. I had no issues with rubbing on or off the trails. I sold that jeep a few years ago, and I just purchased a 05 TJ, which currently has a 2.5 Rough Country lift and just stock wheels/small tires. I just got it out of the shop today for other repairs. I took it too a shop that just works and specializes in Jeeps. I asked what they thought about running 32's and was told that I would need at least a 3 inch lift to do that, and I would end up bending my fender and bumper by running 32's. I told him that I had no problem with the 2 inch lift and 32 tires in the past. He said the previous shop probably put a 3 inch lift on, since that is the most common on the market. ???? Last I checked, it seems the most common is 2 or 4 inches, not a 3 inch lift. Maybe I am wrong.
My plan was to run 32 x11.5 on a 15 x8 rim this time. Now, I am pretty confused on which route to go.
