Can I run 32's on a stock yj

I am trying to figure out what I'll have to do to run 32's on my stock yj. I have a chance to get a set of 32x11.50/15 for a real good price. I would probably be mounting them on cherokee wagon wheels. Could I run these on my stock susp? I do plan on lifting but prob not til spring.

I will join you on this too. I would like to put 32/11.50/15's on my TJ from my current set up of 30/9.50/15's. Just to be sure it works fine, I have a two inch lift though. Just not sure about the gears to handle it.

I am currently running 32x11.50 R15 on a 2003 TJ with the stock 3.07 gears. For the most part the gears are not an issue, the only time i need to down shift from 5th to 4th is on longer steeper hills. Runs 65 mph on the highway around 2100 rpms. I do have a 4" suspension lift and the wheels are 4.5" backspacing.

You'll need to have a 3inch body lift or suspension lift to get 32's on the yj. I have a 2 inch body lift and had 31x10.5x15s and they rubbed a bit at full turn.

I'm running 31x10.5r15 on 15x8 rims with 4 inch backspacing on my yj with no lift. Decent, non sagging stock springs. I have smittybilt tube fenders up front and trimmed fenders out back. I rub quite a bit.

Yes you can witth a little lift. Profile doesn't tell me what engine you have so here is my take. The 2.5L with 4:10s like mine with 33s turns into a highway pig and needs to be regeared. 32s are marginally smaller but all the folks with 6 cylinders do OK on them and no real loss of power on the highway. So your choice.

Yeah i have the 4 cyl with 5 speed. I was thinking on doing a 1.5" body lift and probably add-a-leafs. I dont want to go too high. I would rather go wider. Thanks for all the help, i figuered i would have to do a mild lift. I'm planning on going to a 4.0 and later down the road full size axles.

If you have the 4cyl 5 speed on a YJ you cant go over 31's unless you dont mind losing 5th gear. You might even lose 5th with 31's like I did. Then you would want to swap in an AX15. Then you can do whatever fits if you decide to lift it even more.

Yes

I have 32 BFG KM2 Mud Terrain on a stock 95 YJ Sahara edition on American Racing Mojave Teflon 15 rims with 4.5 backspacing. No rubbing at full lock. No rub or bumps on road driving. I can barely get over a curb.
