Tires?

Hey, I'm looking for a cj right now, but I want to put 30x12.5 tires on but I'm worried they might rub?

Yeah you will need spacers and at least a 2.5 inch lift.

What vintage CJ? My rule of thumb is that 31x10.5's will fit with no lift on most CJ's and I don't think that would change with the wider width. You will need wheels with shallow backspacing, someplace from 3.00 to 3.25" to keep the tires off the front springs and you may need to reset the front axle stops even then. If you go bigger than 31's, yes you will need a lift. 2.5 to 3" generally to run 33's.

So if I stay under 30" I can run 12.5s? without a lift?

12.5 is still to wide you can run a 30x10.5 and be fine with out a lift.
