What size tires with no lift

Is it possible to run 32 11.50's with no lift? I don't do any offroading, mostley highway driving. Just wondering if I can fit them if I get different rims like soft 8's or MT classics.

You should be fine with stock wheels if you can't spend the cash on new ones. But new ones would help.

Stocks rims and 11.50's no good. too much rubbing on the inside. I figured if I get the backspacing I was wondering if I would have to do some major trimming of the fenders. Is there enough clearance? I am not about to use that BS 2" spacer lift and I don't have the funds to do a 4" lift. I have these brand new 32's sitting here and would love to use them.

I'm with you on the packed looked. makes it look aggressive

I liked my 30s. it gave flexing room. i went to 31s with stockers and they scrubbed the lca. I got 2in lift and 31s, still scrubbed. 31s and steelies. no more scrub. I bumped up to 2.5 inch lift & 33's, no rub on lca but rubbed flairs on flex.

I'm looking at the cragar soft 8's. It says 15x8 with 4 backspacing. That should stick my wheels out a little bit right?

You can fit 32x11.5r15 tires on a stock TJ With 4in back spacing and have plenty of room for flex. In the picture are 32x11.5r15 kevlar wranglers on aero race wheels with 3.5in back spacing on top a 2ft mound of frozen gravel.
