Knows that feeling has had this jeep since February and still hasn't decided but I am finding out all sorts of things like it has wheel spacers on it - it has a 1.5" TF lift so I think whoever had it before started at least half assed on it

Ok I still have stock rims on this rig but I would like the rims and tires taken care of before summers end and the snow flies

you can ask other members their exact tire size when mounted to get u an idea before you purchase. or you can do the 33x12.5
What rim width do you need to run 12.5's

So may I ask what comes stock on a JK mine is a 08 but assumes most are the same

Confused

I am wondering about tire size my jeep currently has Bridgestone duelers on it (it came that way) they are a LT 255 75 R17 so I measured from the ground to the top of the tire an it is roughly 31.5" so I get curious and measure my 05 Ram 3/4 ton diesel which has on 285's and they measure almost exactly the same height - why?
