Exclamation Upgrading tire size on my '07

I recently added a 4" Skyjacker suspension lift to my 07 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. I returned from a 21-month long deployment overseas and the Jeep sat in storage for that time. It comes with the stock 18" rims with the original 255/70R18s. I wanted to upgrade to a MT tire that is wider as well and still use the stock wheels. How large can I go and do you recommend wheel spacers as well?

Given the raised suspension, the track looks very narrow. Please let me know. Thanks for your input!

you can do 35" tall tires no problem... as for the spacers i dont know what to tell you cause i dont have personal experience with them but alot of people have them and dont have any problems.

No spacers. Just get some 16 inch Steelies with the correct off set and throw on some 35,s. Ditch the 18 inch wheels.
