Keenan Yes, those are absolutely the wrong size. Your jeep is going to EXPLODE at any moment!!!! No seriously though, your mechanic friend is probably referring to your gearing. Stock AMC 2.5s came with 4.10s, which will not suffice for 33" tires (unless you like having no power ). Throw some 4.88s in there and be done with it.

XJ Knight on a 15x10 in rim a 12.5in wide tire is pretty much as small as you want to go.. I guess you could get away with a 11.5 in wide tire but I wouldn't try it. For your size lift 33x12.5/15's are perfect.. If you like you can upgrade your rear axle then regear to bring yourself back to stock power levels

^^^ This.

Gotta admit, it pleases me to see non-JK peeps struggle with power/gearing/tire size issues from time to time.

deanchesson those tires look pudgy and sweet.

97BLACKSAHARA I agree, with a 3 inch lift I would think that you would be fine running the 33's...Now 35's that would be a completely different story...

Tire size???? Width? Help!

Okay, so I just bought a 1993 wrangler 4 cylinder. The guy i bought it from just installed 33 inch firestone all terrains on it. They are brand new and he only put about 50 miles on them. My friend who is a mecanic told me these tires are too big and I needed to drop down to at least a 31 inch tire. Here's my question, The rims are Black Rock 15 x 10. What size tires would you guys recommend? and should i get new rims also? The jeep has a 3 inch lift if this helps at all. any help would be appreciated
