When I bought my wrangler the original tires lasted about 2 weeks...a twig when thru the side wall at 325 miles. Goodyear passenger tires on a Jeep sucks. Now at 33's and loving it.

The size is fine. As other have said you can go bigger without hitting. Your choice based on preference and wallet.
Personally I donít like the Goodyear Wranglers. The family has had a few vehicles that came with them, and when they were replaced everything was an improvement in the ride and traction. Most notable on wet roads. This was not just from going from a worn tire to a new one. Even new the GY Wranglers slipped a lot. I would look at other brands.

Toyo A/T Open Country 235/75R15 on my 98 Wrangler. They ride very nicely and quietly on the highway. Aired down to 15 psi they perform great in the sand dunes. Probably not a good choice for deep mud, though.

It is kind of a personal taste issue in most cases, or dependent on how you intend to use your Jeep. Mine came from the factory with 215/75/15 but the PO put on 31x10.5x15 Pirelli A/T tires. I needed something more aggressive to get around the ranch when the Texas black clay turns to Texas Black Sloppy stop in your tracks mud. The 31x10.5
tires fit perfect witn no lift....I think they look pretty good also. I did install wider fender flares to block any mud sling. The only down side is my speedometer is off by 9%
if the speedometer reads 60mph I am in fact running 65mph. I have the 3:07 gears.

Easy fix. Change out your speedo gear. I did mine in under 5 minutes in the driveway. Piece of cake.

The 01 has 31's, but I think the dealership put them on originally as they're the same size that's always been on it and the speedo is adjusted correctly.

Rim size for 235/75/15 tires

The comments on 235/75/15 tires have been helpful to me in deciding what will work on our jeeps (97 Sport and 01 SE). I'm putting these tires on two jeeps. I'm also putting on aluminum Ion wheels. I can get them in 8 inch width rims. Do 8 inch width rims (15 X 8) fit the 235 tires okay?

My old set of tires were 235/75r15's on a set of canyon 15x8's and it worked just fine, and Ive had them down to 10lbs
