My old set of tires were 235/75r15's on a set of canyon 15x8's and it worked just fine, and Ive had them down to 10lbs

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?

I like the looks of that. Very nice!

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.

Easy fix. Change out your speedo gear. I did mine in under 5 minutes in the driveway. Piece of cake.

BlackMetal 2004TJ i have a 2004 wrangler x also and it came with 235's of the tires you have now and its a great size personally i would go with the goodyears.

jonrjen 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.

kenjo Toyo A/T Open Country 235/75R15 on my 98 Wrangler. They ride very nicely and quietly on the highway. Aired down to 15 psi they perform great in the sand dunes. Probably not a good choice for deep mud, though.

sparky 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.

TDG When I bought my wrangler the original tires lasted about 2 weeks...a twig when thru the side wall at 325 miles. Goodyear passenger tires on a Jeep sucks. Now at 33's and loving it.

click it I have stock suspension and 31 no issues at all on my 98

bekkiss I have a 2004 X with Duratrac 31x10.5 15's. Suspension is stock and I have no problems with rubbing.

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?
03-17-2011 08:25 PM
Steve Loves Jeeps When I got my X, it had the same rims with 235's. They ran nice. I recently moved up to 31's and I am very happy

MikesX2003 I have a 2003 X. My tires are a 30x9.5 15. They fit really nice with no rubbing ever. I would love to go bigger. But right now bigger really isn't in the budget.

I can get them for $500 all in. I know the factory specs say I can up to a 225/75R15.

Will the 235's fit okay and what do you think of that tire? I drive mostly highway but will have the opportunitry to do some light off roading. Just wondering if there's any disadvantage with going with the 235's.

If nothing else I think they'll look better than my 215's.

Thanks!
