Best bet is 31x10.50's. BFG makes some nice ones that wear well. any larger than 31x10.50 is more likely to rub...unless you are doing some fairly heavy wheeling, shouldn't have a problem with them rubbing. 265/75/R15 is the metric size.

That reminds me, actually- AT, the All Terrain tires, are a little noisier, may be wear a little quicker..but look better. If you are looking for street only, or mostly street, and don't really care about them looking aggressive, try the BFG Long Trail tires.

I did not find the BFG AT noisy at all. Well, I don't even find my current TrXus 33's noisy. I mean they are a bit but I like it. AT, I did not hear a thing..Or maybe I am loosing my hearing

A 31x10.50 is ideal and the biggest an unlifted TJ can handle without rubbing. And as recommended above, the BFG All Terrain KO would be an excellent all-around choice tire that is excellent for most any situation other than deep mud or deep snow. It wears like iron (>50K miles easily) and it's a very quiet tire as well.

Stop by Wally World and get your self some Good Year Wrangler tires in the auto center. They are the budget line tire and a 31 X 10.50 should be fairly reasonable. The give ya about 35-50K miles per set. They are just average street tires and not intended for off roading. JMHO

I would guess no more than 400 per set installed.

I was stuck for 6 hours in mud on time..Learned my lesson and the limits.
