tire size

What is the biggest tire I can use on a 2011 JK Rubicon stock wheels. Not opposed to a lift. I just want to keep factory Black Ops wheels.

As is, what you have is pretty much as big as you can go (32s). Add wheel spacers to get more width and you can go to 33s for onroad use. Then add a small lift to allow for 33s offroad.

BFG KM2 255/80/17 is narrower but a little taller than the 33's and they don't rub nor do you need spacers.

once you hit the 285 mark, they get to wide and rub the sway bar

The Black Ops edtion came with 285/75 x 17. I guess that is the biggest without spacer or a lift. I really like the wheels that came with the Jeep. I was trying to see if anyone had stayed with them and went up in tire size.

The widest tire you can run on that wheel is a 12.50. You would need a lift though and spacers pretty quick though. You can do a cheap BB lift or a decent coil lift for pretty cheap.

Let us know if we can help!

If I were keeping my stock rims, I'd go with the 255/85-17 BFG KM2. It's a 33" tire and would look pretty badass without needing a spacers.
