Jerry Bransford Your 32" AT tires were rubbing if you took your Jeep on an uneven-enough trail, you just didn't realize it.

MikeJeep When I had my 98 TJ, I put 32x11.50 AT's on there. (MT's would have rubbed the flares)

No lift, no rub (except at full turn but added washer to steering stops), and everything else stock.... even w/ my swaybar disco'd

wolfen I was told with stock steel rims the biggest I could put on without rubbing is a 30, but thats at stock height

Miss.Allie Im so confused on what to do! i have an 06 jeep wrangler se with a 3.25 lift on it. i need some new tires but im so lost about the sizing! i know i can put 32's on it but thats about it! any help?

lilmatty5dimes just put new shoe on the girl.... some hercules trail diggers M/T 31x10.50r15. a couple of pics i got today.... and they to fix a wobble at 50mph. but haven't gone a full tank yet so can't tell ya mpg yet or how they hold up in the mud/sand. that will come
09-18-2010 05:35 PM
wolfen Mines an 01, it originally came with 205's, the previous owner put 225's on and when I got it I got 235's, next time I'm thinking of 30's or 235's depends on which is cheaper at the time.
09-18-2010 05:31 PM
02WranglerTJ I have 31x10's on stock wheel....rubs on full turns. Gas mileage is around 13-15 mpg.

Ordered them right then and there...
Duratracs are great. Mother has them on her TJ and I floored her Jeep up a steep long red clay muddy hill that lead me into the parking lot of an Ashleys furniture store. I do "illegal" wheeling every now and then.

drivebytruckerz I wouldn't do anything over a 10.50" width. Anything wider is going to wear the center of your tire out due to the arching effect that having a side tire on a slim rim will cause.
09-17-2010 09:46 AM
Fnx14 Ok I really wanted to put 35s on it but I dont think my rear axle will support the either. I will probably just stick with 33s for now. Thanks
09-16-2010 09:00 PM
rk maxxus You can run 35" tires with wheel spacers if you have the fender clearance. With 33's or 35's you may need to shim the steering bump stops to keep the tire out of your lower suspension arm and sway bar.
09-16-2010 07:55 PM
InfernoGirl Yes you can fit 33x10.5's on stock wheels on a TJ.
09-16-2010 07:44 PM
Fnx14 First post on here and I'm looking to upgrade suspension and tires this weekend. I went with the Rough Country 4" X-Series Suspension lift for my 97 TJ. I was wanting to keep my stock rims for the time being and wanted to put on 33s. Is it doable to put 33x10.5x15 on them?

Don't do a 2" Body lift. Add 2" coil spacers..... Then you can run 32's on your Sport.... Welcome to the forum

lancetkenyon 44-16-15 Bogger is about the biggest you can fit on them. Because the 54s are for a 20" rim.

31x10.50 is pretty much the largest recommended tire size for a TJ.
Well really the rims are off a Jeep Cherokee and are wider than my stock one...and I drive a YJ not no silly TJ
Edit: I have room for them. Just at a full sharp turn is when they catch my springs.
06-16-2010 10:03 AM
InfernoGirl Make sure you retorque them in a hundred miles or so....
06-16-2010 09:07 AM
lonur1 I bought the 31x 10.5's. They ride great and look better. It even fixed my slight wobble at 55mph!

That's what I have on my Unlimited. I don't have any rubbing issue with the rear, but do on the front at full turn.....

(with 2.25" BB)

Full turn to the left or right and see if they rub. Take it off-road and down a good trail and see how they hold up.

Check "summitracing.com" for some inexpensive wheels. I bought (5) cragar soft 8's with 4" bs, 4 center caps, and new lug nuts for around $270 shipped to my door.
I did the same thing but bought mine from jegs about 50 bucks cheaper

lonur1 Yea, that's about a big of tire as I want to get. I'll probably get them. Thanks again!
