Fit Question: 10.5" tires and stock flares

OK, this is my last newbie question and hopefully I won't be a newbie anymore.

Will 10.5" tires fit into the stock fender flares of an '02 Wrangler X?

Dont worry about being a newbie or asking dumb quetions. I was a mechanic for awhile and didnt remember what cupped tires.

I had my 97 for 1.5-2 years, this one a few months, and I JUST figured out how to fold the soft top cleanly in the jeep.

Everyone has "stupid" questions.

you running stock rims with that width tire?? if you are then they should be even or inset a little with the outermost edge of your flare. you may/will expereince some rubbing on your lower control arm when turning lock to lock (such as a u turn or parking) but it wont hurt anything and are some solutions posted out there.

Flares shouldn't be a problem. As osborn said above you probably will have a bit of rubbing at full turn. But some washers behind the steering stops will clear that up.

Ditto. This is all you need to do.

When i took of my soft top to put it into storage i opened it up to see in what shape it is..it fit losely inside the bag.. When i put it back in there i barely snapped the buttons lol that thing is pain in the behind to fold.. i'm glad i have a hardtop and am not planning on re installing the soft top

During the summer I just take mine off altogether. I ordered a full door trail cover and I don't anticipate putting the top back on until about November.

I ended up using the owners manual.

Un hook everything, take the windows out

Take the two rear sail flaps out of the quarter, and fold them all the way up the top, then just tuck it in as your folding it down. The side snaps bend in toward the middle.

Folds up extremly neat if you do it right, ill take pics when I get the new one

Yep, thats the way to do it right. My OCD won't let me just throw the top back and go.
Quick story...
On our honeymoon, my wife and I did a Jeep tour in St. Maarten. The Jeeps were all 06 X, soft top, automatics. The tour guides (if you can call them that) just threw the tops back and left everything hanging out and flapping.
I was about to go off the deep end until we stopped for lunch and I could sneak over and fix ours. They tried to tell me to stop messing with the top until they saw what I was doing and how neat and clean it looked when I got done.

Since I live in FL ,I became an expert dealing with the soft top, u now how the weather changes down here,rain comes and go in matter of minutes, so I had no choice.
Otherwise I would love to keep it topless all year-round.
