What size is your tire?

I'm curious to know what the average size for a tire is. I run 31's but my guess would be the 33's are the most popular size. What do you think.

35's, until they wear out then maybe 37's if I can still climb my crippled fat arse up in the Jeep then.

and see my crippled arse wants to go down to 35's on the CJ and up to a 33 on the YJ, the 31's are perfect for sliding my butt in with out even a hop, but the 38's I have to use the step bumpers like a ladder and use my oh my handles to hoist up

Ohhhhh...
You're crimpled too?

I did have 3/4" spacers and was thrilled when we took them off.
It is just about ALL I can do to swing my leg up enough to get it in the tub now, then grab the handle and pull myself in.

Thank you for the warning, maybe I'll just stick with 35's after all.

how tall are you toshpate?

I'm 5.5" but my chubbyness gets in my way a lot of the time too

33's on my first Jeep. I drove a Jeep with 37's, I just don't see how someone could drive a beast like that on a daily basis. Do you just get used to it after a while? Or do you not drive it daily?

33x12.5x15 with a 4" lift. No plans to go larger for 2 reasons: 1. Stress and strain on the vehicle with anything larger. 2. Stress and strain on my aging body from having to climb into anything taller.

I run 33's, and that's as big as I'll go for a long time. Between me being 5'5" and my shorter than me kids, and my very short (5" on a good day) mother who I occasionally have to haul around, I don't want anything taller. My kids grumble now, and frankly I haven't shoved my mom into it since I lifted it and put on bigger tires.... she had trouble stock with 31's, but she's almost 82....... It's good for her to exercise!

I run 31's on stock suspension and at 5'2" I still have to use the step to climb in, but I want to lift it another 2-3 inches.

Odd duck as usual

32x11.5-15 with a 2" lift. Although I ran them for 2 years w/o the lift just couldn't play in the rocks that way. And my plan is to stay with 32s. As previously mentioned at 5' flat I already have to climb/hoist myself in. In fact that's the only reason I kept the tube steps.
