New 2011 4-door rubicon

I would like to sell the factory tires and install something bigger without a lift while keeping factory wheels. Any suggestions?

You can't really go much bigger on factory wheels without spacers and a lift. The stock 32's are pretty much max.

Having a 10 Rubi with stock tires and wheels I'm real satisfied with that set-up. I agree with Inferno. If you're going to do it get the tires, wheels and lift otherwise it's real capable the way it is. There are many different tires you can get to replace the muds that will fit the stock wheels if you're not satisfied with them, but I don't have complaints with them in wet weather or snow. Some do. Why don't you wait a bit to see how you're going to use it most before you scrap the muds.

Good plan man I really like the look of bigger tires on the stock wheels. You will need spacers though but its worth it. I had 33x12.5 tires under my Jeep before I did my lift granted I was running aftermarket wheels the 33 inch tire will fit but without the spacer on stock wheels the inside will rub when you turn. Once you get bigger tires you'll want to lift it anyways to make it look proportional.
