I just put some 265/75 / 16 Goodyear Duratracs on my 2010 Jeep X sport with new wheels. The place I went to said that was the biggest I can got with without any rubbing. Mine came with the stock 16 inch painted steel wheels. I will post some pics tomorrow. I think it looks way better though. The stock tires look like car tires to me.

I have an 09 with stock 17s and no lift. Discount Tire said the biggest I could put on my stock wheels is 305/65R17s. Has anyone done that?..have pictures?

32's would be the biggest I'de go on stock wheels. Any bigger than that, you might want to look into wheel spacers or a different wheel with more backspacing.

I wanted 33's so i purchased new wheels for them with 4.5" BS. Not only did I not like my stock wheels, alot of people that i've talked to, and on this forum, do not recommend wheel spacers. I am gonna lift the jeep, but will be running the 33's unlifted for a few weeks.

Your wheel width should be narrower than your tire width... this allows you to air down offroad for better traction....

Nope, you are gonna want a wider wheel for that wide a tire I think... I think you'd want an 8" wheel for those tires. Call Discount tire and ask them... they know more about it than me.

Here's my 09 with 265/75/16 BFG's on the stock steel wheels. The 265's look and perform great. They should come from the factory like this
