32" tires stock suspension??

Ok so I have had my jeep for about 5 or 6 months and I just looked at my tires and and realized that the PO had put 32"s on it and as far as I know it has stock suspension and I've had no problem rubbing or grinding even with full flex. Anyone know how this is possible? I thought that the biggest tire you could fit on stock suspension was 31"? Sorry for the long post just am a little confused.

You can run 32"s on a stock suspension as long as it is in good condition and not sagging, and you have aftermarket rims with the correct back spacing. I ran them on my old TJ with crager soft 8s w/o any issues at all for quite some time. I however never considered taking it off pavement until I got my lift.

See that's what's weird is that I have a broken shock on the back drivers side. (PO tried to go over a rock and it hit the shock and bent it and it now has no fluid in it) and yes I have 15X8 eagle alloys but I'm not sure about the back spacing but they do stick out past the fender flares. And I finally got around to trimming the flares just to make it look bigger but I never had a problem with flexing offroad.

You're most likely not getting full flex, as you say, unless you're disconnecting your front antisway bar. Yea, black looks cool when it's clean, but it shows dirt and scratches more than other colors. Still like mine though!

Yea I am not getting full flex cause I haven't disconnected the front swaybars yet. Good point though. And yea black is hard to keep clean but I'd still love to have mine black
