How big can I go??

Hi all - first time/long time. Anyway it's getting to that point where I'm going to need to put on some new tires and was wondering how big can/should I go?

2006 TJ Sport
Dana 44 rear 3.73 ratio
15" alloys
30X9.5 Goodyear's on there now (stock)
no lift (not yet anyway)

Any thoughts?

Out of all the monster trucks out there, I've never seen a Jeep monster truck(built like Big Foot)?? Go for it Bartender, and another round for the troops.

With aftermarket wheels you can go with 31's if you don't lift it. How mine was, and it had no rubbing.

^^^^^^^^^^^ What he said.

However...

Depends on what you want to do. I've seen some people that only drive in town and have no plan on taking it offroad (*then why buy a Jeep???*) and they squeeze up to 33x12.50's under their ride. Tis up to you.

You mentioned you have 15" alloy's...any idea how deep they are? That will help determine what width of tire you can put under there as well. If you have 30x9.5's right now I would guess you have a 7" deep rim. If so I wouldn't push anything wider than a 10.5" wide tire under there.

So...best bet: look for a 31x10.5r15 or 265/75r15

Stock 30's on factory aluminum wheels are usually 8" wheels.

I would say install a bb since they are really cheap. Then put some 32's under it.
