Tales/Pics of your non-lifted JK w/ upsized tires/wheels!

It is an often asked question: “How big of tire can I put on my JK without a lift and without rubbing?”

I am very interested to see your pictures of your non-lifted JK with bigger tires as I am at my own personal crossroads. It is costing me sleep and tanking my job performance… just kidding! I am getting a little frustrated with it though!

Soooo….I would LOVE to see Sports with only larger tires on stock rims. However, any non-lifted/leveled JK with bigger tires and wheels is fair game! To make it informative, tell us what size you settled on and why. Did you eventually need to lift or level due to rubbing? Spacers? That kind of thing.

It is asked so often, there has to be some folks here that are doing it!!

Wheeling/flexing tales/pics get bonus points!

This was when I had 33's and no lift. (don't get Kumho Road ventures, they were cheap but they suck)

Sport with 255/85 R16 BFG KM2, 33's with no lift....

Rides great but I have no base line to compare to. Had the dealer install them before I picked it up. Size is so close to the stock Rubicon tire that I don't anticipate any problems however I've ordered a procal to correct the spedo.

Sweet Jeeps and great photos everyone! This helps a lot!!!

RemoJK - You get bonus points for a pic of the Jeep in its native habitat!

Pkayser - It is great to see the tires on the stock steel rims...looks great!

It looks like I will have to do some new rims, however, as in Alaska we do the winter / summer tire thing. Need pizza slicer, studded tires in the winter and whatever in the summer.

Keep them coming!! Any Crush's per chance?

White is 33x11's with 4.5" backspacing.
Red is 33x12.5's with 3.75" BS.
Neither one is lifted.

Attachment 146523

After I knocked my rear fender off I bought bushwhacker flatties and this pic is first time disconnecting front swaybar on stock suspension.

Here is mine right after I mounted them up, no lift, just 33x12.50 Duratracs on 8 inch Black Rock D Window Rims with 17/57 springs. I am looking to get a 2.5 Spring lift. Sorry no flex or trail pics yet

285/75/16 No lift/leveled and flexed

I'm not sure how to put captions on the pics.

The first one is after putting on 285/75/16 DTs with 4.5 backpaced MB wheels. Fine on road, LOTS of rubbing even on dirt roads if I didnt finesse every bump. Big time rubbing on roads that actually required 4wd even I didnt disconnect.

2nd Pic is after the TF 1.5 Leveling kit. Great on-road and only rubs in fairly extreme flex off road when disconnected. Ran some badass trails in Ouray last weekend, Black Bear Pass, Immogene Pass, Poughkeepsie Gulch etc and was fine with some rubbing on super tight switchbacks and extreme flexy spots. If I babied most areas I could keep it to a minimum.

3rd pic doesnt do it justice as that was BIG obstacle that everyone had to winch up but it shows the flex in the wheel well nicely.

Bottom line is the Leveling kit is great for the first year and definitely neccessary for me with the tires I put on and wheeling I'm doing, would've lost fenders without it for sure. I will most likely go to the 2.5 coil lift for next summer, and then to 35's when I burn through these tires.

Hope that helps.

Dozer - sorry it took me this long to get back to you. I really like these generals. It's my DD so it's a good balance for me. Nice ride on the road, and they do real well on trails too. The preformed better than I expected in mud given they are a AT.
My TKO's have 4.5 BS so they do stick out past the fender. IMO it's just the right amount for a more aggressive look. I'll try to get you a better pic tomorrow.

That is an awesome look on your jeep. What kind of wheels and tires do you have on there? I was looking for that same look for my 09 X deep water blue

Chaos 5 rims & duratrac 285/70/17's (essentially 33's)...had spidertrax spacers on with stock rims and duratracs originally as the duratracs rubbed liked all hell; but just ditched the spacers and replaced the rims last week - love it!


Next year though I will be doing a lift and 35's; likely 4".
