Rim size for 235/75/15 tires
The comments on 235/75/15 tires have been helpful to me in deciding what will work on our jeeps (97 Sport and 01 SE). I'm putting these tires on two jeeps. I'm also putting on aluminum Ion wheels. I can get them in 8 inch width rims. Do 8 inch width rims (15 X 8) fit the 235 tires okay?

|deathphoenix99||The 01 has 31's, but I think the dealership put them on originally as they're the same size that's always been on it and the speedo is adjusted correctly.|

It is kind of a personal taste issue in most cases, or dependent on how you intend to use your Jeep. Mine came from the factory with 215/75/15 but the PO put on 31x10.5x15 Pirelli A/T tires. I needed something more aggressive to get around the ranch when the Texas black clay turns to Texas Black Sloppy stop in your tracks mud. The 31x10.5
tires fit perfect witn no lift....I think they look pretty good also. I did install wider fender flares to block any mud sling. The only down side is my speedometer is off by 9%
if the speedometer reads 60mph I am in fact running 65mph. I have the 3:07 gears.

The size is fine. As other have said you can go bigger without hitting. Your choice based on preference and wallet.
Personally I donít like the Goodyear Wranglers. The family has had a few vehicles that came with them, and when they were replaced everything was an improvement in the ride and traction. Most notable on wet roads. This was not just from going from a worn tire to a new one. Even new the GY Wranglers slipped a lot. I would look at other brands.

|scotiez||When i bought my jeep it came with 215s on it also. Street tires, man did they look small. I wanted tires for on the farm and for my daily driver, somthing a little more aggressive then street tires. When i went to the tire store they suggested GoodYear Wrangler Silent Armors in the 235/75R15. I have had these tires now for a few years and i really like them alot. I have plenty of clearence when going through trails, and across a field or so on the farm. When reading all the posts of what people suggest most will say 31s or 30s. Some will say that 31s fit with no rubbing and some will say you have to adjust the steer stop nut so it won't rub. But Really just put on what you feel you want. I personaly love the 235s that i have, my next tire might be a 30 inch tire but i don't know at this time since im not ready for new tires yet, only time will tell. Here's a pic of mine with 235s. I think they look like a great tire.|

|Gorving3||My 2001 Sahara 6 cyl auto 3:07 differential came stock with 9.5X30X15 and at the first tire change (BFG A/T) I tried 10.5X31X15 and have had no problems, on road or off, in over 30,000 miles. They gave the jeep about 3/4" higher clearance and makes it look a little tougher without the expense of a lift.|

|MikesX2003||So did the 31's fit on the stock wheels? Also did they rub?|

235/75R15 will fit just fine on your Jeep. No driving issues....
My wife's TJ has them... NO ISSUES!
