stock 05 TJ what size tires?

On a stock 05 TJ Sport w/3.73 D44 rear 15x8 wheels will 32x11.5 BFG A/T's rub? Or do I need to stick to 31x10.5. It came with 30x9.5's and I just want to maximize tire size. Thanks in advance.

you can get a 1'' BL and you will be fine as far as flares(i believe), but when turning, you'll end up rubbing on your control arms, because of the BS on your current wheels. some washers or a set of wheel spacers can fix that.
here's a link for the washer steering fix.

Thanks for the quick reply, I'm not real keen on body lifts is it really ness? Can I do it myself? The 31x10.5 are no problem, right?

31x10.50 shouldn't be a problem. You may still get a little rub on your control arms when steering full-lock, but other than that, you should be fine. As far as the body lift, it is a relatively straight-forward modification that you can do yourself if you can follow directions and operate hand tools. More than likely people won't even notice the body lift unless you tell them. The other thing that you could do is a "budget boost" lift kit that just adds spacers to your springs. I think they get you 1-2" in height. Just another thought for you! Happy wheeling!

With 10.50's or 11.50's odd are you are going to get tire rub on stock wheels. It is the wheels that is causing the problem not the suspension. Follow the washer fix on the steering stops and you should be good to go. I ran 31x10.50's on my stock rims and stock suspension for almost a year and the rubbing didn't really bother me.

I would hate to waste the money on a set of tires, only an inch larger than stock! Why not hold off, and decide what you want your Jeep to look like a year from now, and work towords that!
With a modest lift, 32's will fit on your stock wheels. But you will need a set of spacers (not cheap) to keep them from rubbing the sidewalls against the rear spring perch. (This is assuming your going to wheel the thing!)

Or just cut the edge of the rear perch off. One cut off tool is all it takes.

Thanks for all the info. This Jeep is a company lease and I wouldn't want to modify it in any way. I just want to maximize the tire size when the 30x9.5's wear out. I don't mind a little rubbing as long as it won't damage anything appearance wise. The BFG's don't measure out exactly to their call out size, so I thought there might be a little room to squeeze in the 32's. If not I just go with the 31's. Thanks again for all your help. Tony.

31s will NOT rub at full lock. You'll be fine. I have the same 15x8 inch wheels that come with the 30 inch tires and put 31s on immediatly and haven't had it rub once.
