Put 31 x 10.5 x 15 tires on it to start. Still rides good and looks WAY better!

You could put 32's on it and be fine.....but I would reccomend driving it for a little bit first and figure out what it can do already (you will be surprised) Save up for what you want and do it right the first time, it will cost you a lot more if you keep changing things. Give it a little time, you will figure out what you want to do and what suits you. Have fun and welcome to the family and the addiction------You'll never be the same again. No matter how old you are you will always feel like a little kid when it comes to your JEEP.

I ran 32's with a 2" BB and just recently added a 1.25" BL and 33's

new bumpers are a good way to make it look tougher.. and If you get a bigger tire size, I think getting the same sized spare on the back looks really good. I ran 33's on a 2" spacer lift for a little while and never had any problems at all.

welcome to WF.

black bumpers and sliders are actually useful and will make it your jeep.

Have fun.
