I haven't been on the rocks. Most of our trails in Louisiana are dirt or mud.
I'm looking to upgrade to 17" wheels and new tires.

|pcwolf||I also run 85 profile tires on Moabs because I like tall and skinny and wanted to keep close to the stock width of 9.5". Because they are tall and stiff sidewalls I don't air down as much as someone running a 11-12" wide tire.|

the tires are 315/75/16 that equals 34.5 x 12.5
I haven't had any issues running the spacers. Some people don't like them. I just check them every time that I rotate the tires.
I dont like the tires. They don't pull well off road.

|Gary2||I sold my Moabs after researching the 33" tires I would run . Way to heavy D & E load range tires are for 3/4 and 1 ton trucks plus the price and ride quality . 12.50 33 15 is lighter and cheaper . How true it is I am not sure but I had also read each 10lbs per wheel/tire increase has the same effect as 100 lbs would in the passenger seat as far as acceleration and brakeing , multiply that x4 . I cant say for sure where I had read that info but it was enough for me to rethink my tire/wheel selection and do some more research.|

rbloodhound do you know how wide your 16's are??
And to Everyone else, Yea I thought they were maybe off a cherokee or something but if you go to the wranglers Wikipedia page, under the TJ's trim levels it says:
Sahara: 1997-2004 came standard with 4.0 L, wider body colored fender flares, body colored rocker sills, 30" wheel and tire group and full steel doors. The Sahara also feature exclusive decals, seats and trim. For 2000-2004 they had 16" rims instead of the standard 15". Once again the Dana 44 rear axle, and 3.73 axle ratio was optional.

Bottom line, you probably have 15" rims on your sahara tj unless someone put 16" rims on.

|Atthehop||They were never stock on those TJs. You will need spacers to install them and personally I would never run spacers. It's a personal preference.|

Anyone Running Stock 16in Rims W/ Aftermarket Tires??
Any 2000-2004 Sahara's with the stock 16in rims with aftermarket tires here??
I am about to put a 4in lift on my stock Sahara and would like to save some money and just put bigger tires on the stock 16in rims. Im just curious if anyone can tell me what the biggest tires I can put on it are. I would like to put on at least 35's and maybe 12.5 wide.
I have searched and searched and cannot find anything about the rare stock 16's from 2000-2004.
