Tire Size

I have a 2006 LJ with a 2" BB, including shocks, currently running stock 30"x9.50x15 tires. What do I need to do, if anything, to be able to run 32"s? I'm getting everything from "you can't run 32s" to "you don't need to do anything but put 'em on". I figure you guys can give me the real scoop.

you can put 33s on a stock suspension you rub if you turn sharp or flex out real hard but its able to be done but not recommended

I have a similar question. At the moment my 2000 Jeep Wrangler has stock 15x8 wheels and 30x9.5 tires. If I want to install new 15x10 wheels, what tires should I mount on these 15x10 wheels? I have a 2inch lift btw Just did finished it yesterday with my good old friends!

You can easily run 32s. I have a buddy who actually had 33/10.50/15s on his LJ with just a 2in BB, Ive heard from other LJ owners that for some odd reason you are able to fit slightly bigger tires than a tj, could be cuz rear stock springs are stiffer due to added weight.

For a 15x10 wheel I would run a 33/12.50/15, but you will rub at a full turn. I wouldnt run anything smaller than a 32/11.50/15, and you shouldnt rub with that.
