Here's a 33x12.5x15 on 15" MB72s with a 2.5" Teraflex coil lift (ESP's ride)


Here is mine with 285/75/16 (33x11) on 16" Strike 5s with a Teraflex leveling kit


The 285/75/16 would mean you would lose close to 2" in width over your existing tires. However, you could go with a 305/70/16 which would be a 33x12 tire.

Need to know what you consider "big and good". Ok, that just didn't sound right.

4fit OP, I just realized a mistake I made in this post. I thought you said your existing tires were 325/65s, not 325/60s. That makes a big difference. That means your current tires are really 33.3" tall, not nearly 35". Sorry about that!

I think you mean how many tires for 15" wheels have the width of your Toyos. Your current tires spec out to 12.8" wide. There are several options on the 15" wheel for a 33x12.5 tire. So you may be losing a bit in the height and width department if you go that route.

YEPPER, a 35" tire is 35"s tall whether on a 10" Rim or a 32" Rim.


(what came over me? lol)

Chrisalicious1993 what about the actual Jeep height?

A 35" tire will actually look bigger on a 15" or 16" rim than on the 18" due to there being more sidewall.

You may even be able to get 5x 15" wheels AND tires for less than the cost of just 5x replacement 18" tires.
^^ this is very true, and typically something I would recommend as well. Just didn't think the OP would want to get rid of the 18s. Looks like aftermarket wheels in his avatar.

OP, here are the 35x12.5x18s offered by DTD. These would be very close in size to what you are running now.

4fit That is essentially a 35x13 tire. HERE are the tires that Discount Tire Direct carries in that exact size. You can certainly change the dimensions a bit if you so desire. As for which ones, I'm not sure. Depends on your wheel dimensions and if you mind going up or down in tire size.

Tire Change Time? HELP!

I have a 2008 Wrangler X and the tires are 325/60r18 Toyo Open Countries. They are balding and I want to buy new tires. I want more off road tires, but I can't find many that are the same dimentions as the Toyo's. Am I able to change dimensions and which ones? Also what would be the best pick in tires (I always hear of the BF's)?
