Stock JK 18" tire question

Hey guys sorry if this was already posted but again I couldn't find a thread.

With no lift/spacers/etc what are the biggest tires I can run on stock 18"s on my '10 Sahara unltd?

Any sweet tires that come to mind in this size?

And with spacers (no lift) what could I run?

**I'd prefer no rubbing at all. I offroad occasionally.

Thanks!

i asked around the same thing awhile back. check out post #9 in this thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/the...-jk-46728.html

it also shows some good tire choices for the stock 18" rims. but a 275-65R18 is about all your gonna get on there without rubbing.

Ya I'm sure I will soon. I just can't really lift my jeep too much bc I park in a park garage sometimes and I'm inches from not clearing my roof! Otherwise I'd just save up for a set of wheels and tires (prolly 35s) and a 3 inch lift.

Just lookin for the best bang for the buck to put on my stock 18s with an aggressive look like the km2s but is also bearable on road as my dd.

Since it's a DD, I think your best bet is keep your eye's open, for a set of USED Rubi JK 17" wheels/32" BFG KMs (takeoffs)

Direct bolt on, no MODS at all and fairly aggressive looking

Good luck

That would be a good option but I spent an entire day painting my stock wheels black so I would want to keep that look without painting another set
