JACK3D Today I dropped from 35s to 33s. Got some BFG all terrains for free and put them on... Wow what a difference. Such a better ride, and holy crap, I can use 5th gear and go 75 MPH!! Before and after...

Again, it's just my opinion

I think you'll look fine.

You'll only have one more 1" between the tire and fender than you have now

I'd probably look for 32's. But that's my opinion.

YJ fanatic I absolutely love mine. They do very well on the trails, and very smooth and quiet on road.

jokerchief462 Great on the highway and for my wheeling no issues.

tigerblood the bfg at's last a looong time wear-wise.

JACK3D Here's the BFGs I'm going to put on. Not the best pic, but you can see they have very good tread left

Daily driver, some trails, in the woods deer hunting. I don't plan on doing any serious rock crawling or anything like that

Goong to smaller tires.. Few ?s

1993 YJ 2.5L.... Currently running 35x12.5x5 on stock gears. We all know about the lack of power and "performance" to use the term loosely, or lack of a better word. I'm going to drop to 33x12.5x15. it's not a fix but I'm sure the 33s will at least be slightly better than the 35s. And they will be easier in the stock axles. I am eventually going to either swap, or regear. Just not right now.

I'm thinking of going with BFG All Terrain T/A. And im getting these tires fir free. Otherwise I'd just keep my 35s on. This switch isn't going to cost me a penny.

How do these perform off road? They are less aggressive than what I'm running now, hoping by going a little smaller I can relieve some stress on my old 93.

I've got about 4 inches of lift currently, will 33s look tiny? Anyone have pics of a similar setup?
