ince they are free, could you drop a couple of sets with me for "testing"? A variety of sizes would be good... let's start with some 37" sticky Krawlers.

JeeperJake I chose stock Sahara rims, no lift/no spacers.

275/65R18 with no issues meets my needs.

I can step into and out of my Jeep without climbing up or down. There is ample clearance for any projected use I anticipate.

Being long an advocate of "taller/skinnier" vs the "fatter/wider" school of thought, when a family member showed up a few years back, their choice of ultra wide sticking out beyond the sides of the TJ looked pretty strange to me. And his set up was constantly flinging road debris onto his rig.

It doesn't matter to me what someone else chooses. We all have our own notions of style and functional needs. I remain amazed at the incredible variety of choices available.

I run those exact size tires right now with a 3.5" lift and 1.5" Spidertrax spacers. Great tires. When I first got those tires, I ran them on my Sahara (18"wheels) while it was still stock for about 2 weeks prior to my lift install. No issues at all. Tiny bit of rubbing at full lock but no problem.

A 33" tire would raise the vehilce 1/2 inch over a 32". That is not going to significantly change you center of gravity to increase your roll over risk.

mike636 So you think the size I have on her now will look fine with a leveling kit?

Clutch127 If you go with 10.5" wide tire (dont, there is no point) you wont need them, but any bigger than that you will need a 1.5" spacer. Thats all you "need" to do fo fit them. A lift or new springs are just good accessories to add to it.

mike636 I want to put a leveling kit on my stock 08 Sahara. I have 255/75/18's, what's the biggest size tires I can put on it without doing any other mods besides the leveling kit?
07-19-2011 09:01 AM
Lithium Lotus Wider aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers if using stock wheels.
07-18-2011 10:44 PM
GoldenSahara00 Nothing.
07-18-2011 10:28 PM
SilverSport I used Spidertrax 1.5" spacers with 33s on the stock wheels.

BRADWRANGLER2011 I have a stock 20ii sport can i put 285.70.17 goodyear duratracon my jeep without any lift.thanks

Irongrave adjust your steering stops a little cut a little plastic if needed and call it a day
07-18-2011 04:15 PM
daggo66 It depends on the size. You can put 33's of the same width on and do nothing. 255.85.17. If you go wider you will need wheel spacers for the stock rims. If you get aftermarket rims, you will need 4.5" of backspacing or less. If you want more clearance you can add a BB or you can get up to 2" (depending on your stock springs) by adding HD Mopar coils. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/con...wap-55849.html
