I need your advice on Tire size

I have 30 x 9.5 x 15 size tires on my Sahara. I would like some advice on what size I could increase the tires to without causing a headache and trouble?

Here's a pretty good site I use from time to time. It will give you an idea of the different tire sizes and how they compare.

I use this "tire size calculator".. it tells you speed differences and stuff..

http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

anyways.. as for wranglers go.. you first need to think how far you want to go.. what will you use it for.. how much do you want to spend.. give us some more info on your rig.. also while you're at it.. check the ratio on yoru differential.. it should say it on there.. its a metal tag that is bolted on the differential it self..

Many people here are running 33s and stable.. few are running 35s but with 35s axle upgrade and regearing is highly recomended
