Question Question about bigger tires....

Hello I have a 2000 Wrangler 4cyl and was thinking about upgrading my factory tires to BFGoodrich 30x9.5's. The only problem is since I have the 4cyl is this gonna effect my speed much on the highway?? Or should I just go with a new set of factory size tires? Thanks

First off, welcome to the forum.

No it won't affect it much as you're really not making that big of a jump in size and weight.

btw check the web, those sizes come stockers on many TJs.. you can get some for cheap from someone that got a new set.
