Tire size?

What's the biggest tire size I can put on a 2006 Jeep Wrangler X without any type of lift? By how much will it raise my jeep? And for whatever size the tire might be what size rims does it fit? 15, 16? Or another size?

Thanks in advance

First big question is, do you off road? If so are you willing to cut your flares and a bit of your tub? Then do you want to do it right or do you want it for looks? Right for low and big tires requires some work. And some cash. Anything beyond 31's the price goes up. I'm on 35's and have spent a bunch to make it live in the rocks with them.

without a lift I believe 31x10.5s are as big as you can go. ive got them on mine with a 2.5" lift and have lots of room for flex. ive got 15" rims as well. they cost less for the 15" rim than 16".

You are both wrong. You can put at least 42s on a stock Wrangler with no lift. I think if done right, you can go even bigger.

Lol....
I thought I was bad when I picked up 35s. Three in the back and one on the roof.
