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.

For most people it's probably (1) mud or (2) flat tires that are the biggest disadvantage of the stock tires.

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

jeep2011mass

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.
08-06-2011 10:28 AM
jeep2011mass 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?
08-06-2011 09:44 AM
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.

rics1997 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.

Here it is after the M-8000 was installed.

I lasted about 2 months with those wheels on mine. I almost felt embarassed everytime I parked next to a lifted Jeep with 33's. I allowed Discount tire to toss the rims and gave my neighbor the tires for his wifes Liberty. They were actually about 1/2" more narrow than the slicks she took off.

Probo Nice looks great... I'll defiantly be getting it.. Thx

Please excuse the mAll terrains, they do okay, but I want to swap them out for some kumhos.

Avalon786 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
07-24-2011 11:23 PM
WilliamGray I forgot to put stock wheels and tires in my post above.
07-24-2011 10:53 PM
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.
07-24-2011 10:27 PM
WilliamGray 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.

subzero2931 Stock are more than capable so far for me, just got a 2011 jk, and loving it. But mods are already coming in.

btvannarsdall I would like to thank everyone for replying to my question! Thanks for being helpful, I know there are other ones where people are not as friendly. Thanks to all, and that winch will be sweet!

Which means you'll want a lift and some leveling spacers, and new tires should really have new wheels, . . .

On and on and on you go.

I myself am not a fan of A/C, not sure why but it always gives me a headache.... My wrangler I just bought is 100% stock 2011 without A/C but the mod thing...... I have already ordered parts and haven't even seen my Jeep yet

It does ok, you need to keep your speed up in sand and mud. The stock tires will out perform( and almost run over) a kawasaki mule 4wd in deep sand. Maybey next time my brother will get out of the way.
