tire questions

if i'm running the original rims on my 05 wrangler which are 225/75-15, what is the largest tire that i can run without buying new rims or getting a lift? I'm low on cash and I just want it to look good for the time being.

the rim you are running is 15x7. That's 15 inches tall and 7 inches wide. I wouldn't go over 9.5 inches wide in tire. The height of the tire really doesn't matter.

what he said.
height, 30", 31" (maybee) if you dont wheel at all.
if you go with 31" i would do at least a 1-2" BL or a 2" BB lift.

Thanks for the replies. What lift would be good for me just toying around every now and then? I don't want to go big, just for weekend playing and keeping my gas mileage as close to regular as possible.

if it were me i would be going with the budget boost lift/ coil spacers gives you a chance to uprgade your shocks for a smoother ride plus i hate the look of bodylifts

with 15x7's you can go up to 11.50 wide tires easy but you will need wheel spacers.

id say that you should get some 31" BFG M/T's they will look really good and they are the best off road tire on road if that makes sense, although if where you go is mostly rocks then i would look into some other kind of tire, they're not amazing on the rocks
