Greetings all. I don't know my a** from my elbow when it comes to lift kits, tires, or anything else for that matter. But I just got my first wrangler and I'm eager to learn about anything and everything Jeep related. I'm sure someone else has already asked this question, but what are the largest tires that can fit on a 2011 wrangler sport with stock suspension and no lift kit. I have the stock 32inch 255/75R17s on there now. I'd like to take some of my tax return and put it into the Jeep, and I'm trying to figure out what to do to it first. Any and all knowledge/opinios on the subject would be much appreciated!

Yep, LOTS of folks have asked that question. Did I mention there's a little search button right up there in the upper right?

That said, you've got the largest tires you can get without doing anything. You can go up to 33s with wheel spacers or steering stops, or just new wheels with less backspacing. Anything bigger an you'll be rubbing like crazy.

Stick around. Lots to learn here and welcome to the Jeep family!

If you are so new to jeeps, why dont you stay with the stock setup for a while, learn your jeep, then upgrade.

This. I am new too Jeeps & wheeling, and when we took delivery of the JK I was flat out researching lifts, tyres, winches etc. So far the wheelin I have done, I would not have benefitted at all from any of those things, other than the weight I would have dropped from my hip pocket.

Tyres will wait until the stockies are bare, and I'll need to get far more serious with the wheelin to necessitate a lift & winch.
Plus it is awesome rounding a corner in the middle of a pretty serious trail and parking your stock Jeep next to a Toyota with 10 grand worth of mods.
