get a 2.5in lift for 180 bucks from RC
throw some 33s on or chop the fenders and run 35s
what is the issue you are contemplating

|Earl Balentine||After reading all of this I am more confuse. I think I will just skip the 2.5 Lift Kit and go up a size wider on tires and keep my same wheels. I just want a more aggressive tire for off road then the stock passenger tires I have now.|

|lee indy||no. not at all. the Sport S comes with the 3.21 gears too and 32s. i know guys who run 35s on 3.21s and are fine with it. youve got the new motor and trans. get a flashcal to change the size in the computer and it will drive better too. most people just slap bigger tires on and dont cal the computer then complain about the laggy response. the transmission is speed sensitive and if the computer doesnt know how fast its going it wont shift right|

|UmbrellaCorp||If they were good in snow id jump on them, ive heard they are awful in the snow. thats why i was looking for duratracs....guess ill get the 33s... Do i have to worry about regearing with the 33's?|
|07-30-2014 01:07 PM|
so the 16s come with 30s on them.
rubicons come with 32s
get rubicon take offs.

Use that link. Punch in those numbers. Remember all tires run a bit shy of their numbers.
My 33s were 32.5
My 35s were 34.75
My 37s. Closer to 36

|UmbrellaCorp||No way not the sport c with 16 inch rims.... maybe the rubis do? No way mine or 31s they are like 225 /75/ 16 s they are tiny... 27 inches i think Hell id be happy with the size of rubi tires as long as they were Duratrac or something good in the snow|

|lee indy||You dont want a 31. that is smaller than the factory. JKs come facotry with 32s|
|07-30-2014 11:46 AM|
|UmbrellaCorp||Im pretty sure I want Duratracs based on most of my driving is DD and dirt roads, Id like a tire good in the snow , So I think I may get 31 vs 33 based on the price it should be lighter as well... I really have no desire to regear at all|
|07-30-2014 11:24 AM|
on a 15in rim they are just straight 33x12.5 r 15
no metric sizes
are both 32.8x11 in wide
use this tool to figure out differences. its very handy

|UmbrellaCorp||No dicount tire that i can find, and 33s are what a 315? or 285?|
|07-30-2014 10:56 AM|
go with a 33 12.5 r 15 on some MB rims. MB has several rims that were designed to work on a JK.
do you have a discount tire near you?
going to a smaller rim will save you a ton of weight in rotational mass and that is the real reason people need to regear.
33s will look great with the leveling kit.
|07-30-2014 10:52 AM|
I have a stock Sport C, so the lowest gear ratio, I just want a full look, the only lift I will do is a leveling kit, I'm trying not to have to re gear because I have no idea how to do it at all and it sounds expensive, just dont want tires that people will laugh at lol the 16s are tiny
|07-30-2014 10:36 AM|
|lee indy||go with 15s. rubber is cheaper to the point it pays for new rims|

|07-30-2014 07:55 AM|
if you want to go with a bigger tire dont cheap out

|UmbrellaCorp||still dont quite understand sorry.. If i keep my stock 16's (2014JKU) What can i fit without a lift, spaces or cutting? and do they come in duratracs.... would a 255/7/16 fit?|
|07-29-2014 08:30 AM|
you are only worrying about how far it sticks out. start remembering turning too. the tire has to not rub on a bunch of stuff.

I just put new tires and wheels on my 2013 Sahara
General tire AT2, LT275/65/R18. (Great tires, no noise, and the ride is much smoother than the stock tires)
KMC XD Series Enduro 18 inch wheels
No modifications to the vehicle were needed.

+15 is 5.4 in back spacing
-10 is 4.4 in back spacing
go for the -10. trust me on this one

|SteveC1187||So I just read majority of this thread and my head is spinning.... But here's my combo that I'd like to run based off the thread so can some one tell me if it will work or what's wrong with it.... I'm looking at a tire of 285/75/17 with a rim of 17x8.5 with either a -10mm or a +15mm offset. Thanks and will be adding a leveling kit as well.|
