JDsDream Are they mainly for off road or is this your daily driver and you are looking for a beefy tire with road manners?

Hensman Your 225/70/15 is a 27.5x9x15 tire. Tires are measured two different ways. One metric, one standard. Most cars have metric, but in the jeep world, most have standard. Metric Tire Conversion Calculator - Red Rock 4x4 Thats the website I use to do the conversions. You should be able to get 31's under there, but I'm sure other people will chime in.

Need help with tires

I need to replace tires on my 98 Jeep Wrangler. I will need to keep the stock rims but I want to put on some beefer tires. I am confused about the tires and wheels sizes. I understand the 225/70/15 means 225m wide by 70% as thick on a 15" rim. I get confused when it 30x8 or something like that. I don't under stand how this relates to the first set of numbers imprinted on the tires. So I am asking for some suggestions. You guys know what looks good. Bulky treaded tire rather fat and wide with white letters. I know that sounds so non technical but help! I want to get some nice tires. Thanks
