Big Tires!

Hey everyone, im new here this is my first post. As of 2 weeks ago im a new owner of a 2006 65th anniversary Jeep Wrangler. (65th = an X model with a bunch of goodies).

Anyways, my previous car was an 03' Dodge Dakota and i had BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires, unfortunately the wheels that came on my wrangler are 15'' and not 16'' so i cant use those.

Now Im looking for the BIGGEST tires i can find for my wrangler WITHOUT having to lift it just yet.. Any suggestions???

Thanks!

Hey, welcome to the boards and congrats on the new Jeep.

The biggest tire that will fit without rubbing is a 31". That's what I have on mine. The BFG MTs are a good choice as are the Goodyear MT/Rs.

Enjoy the Jeep.

31's will rub a little when turning sharp unless they changed something with the 06 my 01 always rubbed when making u turns, but some spacers took care of that.
congrats on your purchase though and happy jeeping.
