tires?

So I have a 2012 wrangler unlimited with the s package. I am wondering how much larger tires I can put on without spacers or a lift. Currently it just has the all seasons and I would like to out more all terrains on it. Also could I sell the old ones? They only have 3000 miles on them. Thanks.

I put 33's on mine with no problem except when going fast over bumps or flexing my rear tires hit the fender flares only while off roading though. It's fine in the streets and if you just take it easy on trails.

Thats classic. "fit 33's with no problem". Then list all the problems. Awesome!

That's why I recently purchased a teraflex 2 1/2" coil and spring lift

This is all new to me also. I wouldn't go bigger than 33's because then you open up a whole other can of mods to be able to run them.

33's will fit just fine with minimal bumping, scraping, and rubbing on the fenders depending on how rough you are with it offroad. As for selling the old ones, it depends on the overall condition and wear. Some tire shops will offer to buy them during install or you can sell them online.

I think "with no problems" is subjective To me rubbing my fenders a bit when disconnected is no problem. It's hard to sell the stockers around here unless you are practically giving them away because they are a dime a dozen. You can find people on craigslist selling stock JK tires with less then 500 miles on them all day long.
The plus side is that you can buy rubi wheels and tires for damn cheap and that's a 32" right there. Good luck!

Mtr kevlars is what I run and no problems on road dirt mud or rocks or a nasty downpour with standing water like I just drove through out of Colo springs.. Did 55 with 35-12.50's and cleared the water out of the road :-)
