Help with tire size

I have a pretty much stock 95 Wrangler SE and I want to know what the biggest tires are that I can get without getting a lift for now? I will be doing mostly street driving with the occasional off road, what are the best kind of tires for that. Excuse me if this topic has already been covered but I did not see it. Thanks.

a 31" tire in All-Terrain flavor would be your best bet. Good for on and off-road with excellent tread wear to last you a long time.

31's will be a close fit on a 95, I did the same thing. Make sure that you have some rims that will push them out a bit. Otherwise when you turn, "they will rub."

Hope this helps

if you get wide tires you will need new wheels with less backspacing, if you have the money though i woudl go with a 2" body lift ($100) black steelis 15X8 3.75 backspacing ($160), and then get 32's, but then again if you're not going offroad its not gonna be worth the $200 to get 1" more

You can adjust your steering stops so your tires don't rub on the springs. You will also have a little rubbing on the fender flares with 31's. I just trimmed mine a little with a utility knife.
