32's with no lift and no wheel turn issues (rubbing). You can get 33's on with no lift but will rub when turning and need either wheel spacers or new wheels with better backspace. 35's can go on with no lift if fenders are modified or new flat fenders with new wheels with better backspacing.

35's will definitely rub if everything is left stock.

33x12.50 with rims that have 3.75" backspacing no issues. My son has his on his 07.

35x12.50 with rims that have 3.75" backspacing and flatfenders. Trim the air dam in front, no issues. Not the look I like but will work.

Love the look of your Jeep! No lift on that? Spacers? Leveling kit? It looks awesome!

you can get 37s to work if you run metal cloak fenders or take a saw to the body. 35s will fit with some trimming on the plastic fender flairs.

Some tires come in inches like 35x12.5 while most come in metrics. The first number is the treadwidth in millimeters. The second is the ratio of the treadwith to the sidewall height. so to calculate the side wall height you multiply the width by 0.ratio. 275x.75 in your case. Take that multiply it by 2, convert it to inches and add it to the wheel diameter to get the over diameter of your setup. Or just find a calculator online to do it for you

(275 x 0.75) x 0.039 x 2 + 17 = 33inches height diameter = 10.7inches You should be fine but may rub on steering wheel lock.

The 255/70/17 or 275/75/17 are metric sizes where the first number is a metric width of the tire in mm and the second number being the percentage used to determine tire sidewall and the last being the size of the wheel in inches.

33 X 12.5 X 17 or 35 X 12.5 X 17 is the older standard tire size in SAE which is still used in larger tire sizes. The first number is the size of the tire in diameter or 33 inches tall, the second number is the width of the tire in inches and the last is the wheel size in inches

Here is a tire calculator that will give you tire sizes for metric tires and compare it to new sizes you might want.

Great info! As a new Jeeper, it took me a while to wrap my arms around the standard sizes. The above post should be included in the "Tires" section of the owner's manual ..
