jwilson2598 I'm rocking a 1.5" leveling kit, 275/70/18 (33") Duratracs, and 1.5" SpiderTrax spacers on stock wheels on my 2013 Sahara.

I also attached a picture of my old 08, it had a TeraFlex 2.5" kit, SpiderTrax spacers, and 285/79/17's on stock wheels as well.

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

The short answer is 33x10 or 255/80/17, but as i'm sure you know, there is a lot more to it than just the numbers...
Well... That's pretty much all I need. No mystery, same stuff we do on the XJ.

Thanks!

Good question...

This photo came from a dealers ad. I was hoping someone would jump in and provide maximum specs on a JK.

The spacers may be needed due to a combination of the wheel backspace and tire section width (SW) dimensions.

On my Cherokee the max section width tire you can mount on OEM wheels on the rear axle are 11.5" wide.

I don't know what the maximum tire size is on a JK using stock wheels... despite what a tire shop will or will not do.

Shouldn't need spacers for a leveling kit.

m998dna I found this cruising Cars.com ... not sure the size tire or lift.

Don26 I have to admit they look pretty good. Maybe I will stick with the stock rims.

Freakin awesome right there. Something about the older wheels. Simple but look great with big meats.

Any balancing/install issues? Techs give you any trouble ?

That's exactly my dilemma too. I too like the black rims but I am not sure if I can justify throwing out perfectly good alloy rims and replace them with black ones. And plasti dipping will not work for me, because they will need to be retouched frequently.

kjeeper10 Just remember. Depending on the size you may need spacers.
The stock rims are narrow and a lot of people run a 12.5 tire. Most shops won't mount a 12.5 on a 7.5

MTH It's routine. Many do it.

Provided you use spacers, you can add as much tire and lift as you desire and/or budget allows.

That is my plan too. I just installed a 2" lift. Eventually I will install 285 or 315 tires onto my stock rim, if they fit. But that's not going to happen until I need new tires anyways. Until then the 2" lift with stock tires will do just fine for me.
