|evel_knievel1||Good advice! I just picked up a '12 Sport and I myself had many questions about the effectiveness of those itty bitty stock tires.|

|bearman95||Stock works well for sure. Get and keep you some some good off road tires such as the BFG KM that are on the stock Rubicon and you can go about anywhere you want or need to go. Supplement that with a good Warn winch and your fixed for the life of you jeep.|

Good video shows stock jeep capability.

|pluke the 2||thanks. in all honesty, i had more fun with my jeep when she was all stock.|

|pkmcd99||With proper skill and experience, a stock Jeep can definitely take you off the beaten path and up the billy goat trails. Some people have little knowledge and experience and believe a Rubicon is the only capable wrangler. Great pics pluke.|

|dawhitesJKU||@tacojeep, to me.... the rubi's are for frequent offroad users, the sahara's have that "don't get me dirty" kinna look, and the sports are for personalization. Thats just me though. I chose the sport since it already comes with the amenities i want...4wd, ac, stronger engine, and the price i got it for which fits my budget.|

|tacojeep||I'd be just fine with a stock sport... the rubi is probably overkill for mall crawling -|

i really was planning to go with a 3+ inch lift w/ bigger tires...now plans have been changed to just a small lift to accomodate bigger tires. With all the money i'll end up saving, i can add other stuff.

I'm picking up my 12 jk sport base model no bells or whistles but I know on my last three jeeps 15 psi was perfect for off roading on the beach and 20-25 psi allowed for a much smoother ride. The tire wall should say the Max and min psi and then play within those numbers and see what feels best.

I would have to say its not so much the tires that look mousey when parked next to a lifted with big tires, it the wheels.. They just do nothing for the look of the wrangler. I mean nothing.. The tires are for the most part capable to handle most anything, however, mine got gouges and slices after driving down a dirt rocky road.. So if you can handle the battle wounds, don't replace them till its time... save that money and buy some bitchen wheels .... For the time being I just got some wheel skins for my wheels to make them look better and visiualy more appealing till I have enough money to get new tires and wheels... They will do till I have to get some new ones...
I keep my stock tires at about 35 psi which I think is hard,but that is what it says.. Does anyone know how much you can air down for everyday street driving for a better ride..Once again theese are the stock 225/75/16 that come on the 2011 JK sport?

|manderson.||I've got a similar question. I bought my 07 unlimited x used and the dealer had put new hankook dynapro at's on that are 235/75/17's. I'll be making a trip with my girlfriend to durango next month and am trying to decide if these tires are going to be adequate for some light wheeling. Have been looking at replacing them but don't really have the $ right now.|

Here is the same bumper with bar and stubby end caps. It has a lot of combos to change it up. Hard to believe this is the same bumper but it is.

I got mine (2010 JK Sport) bone stock from the dealer, soft top, 6 speed, no a/c and I am loving it! Its like having a blank sheet of paper and you can just mod as you like (so far nothing yet other than Jeep Mud Flaps and Tail Light Guards) I was able to find this little hill with a bit of mud and some bumbs and the stock tires worked well! I think I'll just replace the rubber for something more beefy when the time comes. Its my DD and I have never been wheeling (yet!)
I am glad to see I'm not the only one sporting a stock jk

|jk'n||I bought bone stock 16" steel wheel pulloffs to put on my Rubicon with winter studded tires. They work fine. Thinking about another set for my new sneakers when the time comes....or 15" steel....I'm leaning 15". They will air down better with less chance of denting the wheel on a good hit.|

Ok, did not have much luck in finding anything really challenging to try the stock wheels on. Here is a video of two small climbs on the same hill. Hard to tell how steep it is, but it was enough to scare my Sister in-law.
