coldbluedsteel That's awesome and good luck with your Wrang! How are you like the four doors? I love my 2-door, but when it's me, the dog, and friends, I wish I had gotten the 4-D. Good luck and enjoy!

Its a 4 door 6 spd Sahara, and right now still has factory tires...I don't want off-road tread because while I'm a born & bred Missouri girl where off-roading & mudding are regular activities, I just don't need them here in Texas. So my question is, what are my options for bigger tires without needing a lift? I've always been pretty familiar with wheel sizes but now is the first time I've paid more attention to the actual tires than the wheels...does that make sense?!

The tread has to do with off-roading and mudding and such. If you don't want an aggressive tread, just get A/T tires. Good luck, I'm from the pines in Jersey so the woods is my home.
I sure do miss the pine woods in jersey.

This is correct, but if you're gonna throw tires that are over 11+ inches wide on your stock rims, you're also going to need wheel spacers or new wheels with less backspacing (4.5" or less) so your tires don't rub your wheel well when you turn.
