As promised. Here's my tires, not the best shot , I'm working on a better one.[IMG]

You can, but depending on the type tires you have, you won't go far.... It's not so much the size as the tread design....

|beevos||Just bought a 2010 Jeep Sport 16" rims all stock, no lifts, no nothin'. I know the better gas mileage and less sound and all that hoopla. But snow, some trailing and mud can i do these with no bigger tires or lifts?|

If you see how small my 265's look under the fenders I'd think 295's would be a nice snug fit.

|mowbizz||My 07 Sport came with the upgraded size 255/75/R17 and they are supposed to be 32" tall. They look good and beefy too. Only thing is the stock GY SR-A tire sucks in the snow in 2wd...I will be getting either Goodyear Silent Armors or Firestone Destination A/T tires before the snow flies this year...both are good looking and highly rated tires with excellent highway ride.|

|ncossey||I had 295/70/17s on my stock 2dr jk with 4.5 backspaced wheels and had zero issues with rubbing, the only time I actually got any rub was when I disco'd the swaybars and got some major flex going on. If you run a 265/70 you will definitely have more than enough room with a stock setup on aftermarket wheels.|

Correction: Here's what 32" 265 70r 18's look like on my JK. They're a lot taller than they are wide and will give you about an inch and a half of height. They rub a little on sharp turns but nothing serious. As you can see from the pics you'll have plenty wheel well clearance. You have plenty more options with 16" wheels than I have with my 18" wheels. Hilldweller has a nice set of tires on his JK. I'm sure you'll be fine with a set of tall 33's on 16 inch wheels. Be sure to find a tire dealer that knows the height differences of the various brands of tires. It seems it would be common knowledge for a tire dealer but some dealers DON'T know and will sell you anything just to make a sale.Some brands are wider while some brands are taller. Opt for the TALLER brand over wider brand in order to fit the largest possible tire. If you want more aggressive tread then you may have to stay within 32" tires for the best fit. Some 32" and especially 33" tires are shorter but a lot wider an will scrub.

Here's what 32" 275 60r 18's look like on my JK. They're a lot taller than they are wide and will give you about an inch and a half more height. Trust me--you'll notice an inch and a half of height the second you jump in your Jeep. They rub a tiny bit on very sharp turns but nothing serious. They rub just enough to knock the dust off--they don't actually scrub. No scrub marks on the insides of the tires. As you can see from the pics you'll have plenty wheel well clearance. You have plenty more options with 16" wheels than I have with my 18" wheels. Hilldweller has a nice set of tires on his JK. I'm sure you'll be fine with a set of 33's on 16 inch wheels.

Thanks for the pic and the post. I had just ordered these tires and I was looking for someone who had similar. They look great! Now it puts my mind at ease that they will look great on my JK sport.
Will post a pic once they are installed. Thanks for the help.

Thanx Mc, yea thats a RC steel spacer 2.5" lift and I'm using fairly expensive RS9000XL (adj) shocks ($100-ea)
I don't haver any experience with them though !!
|09-12-2010 04:35 PM|
So are you saying you did get a 2.5 lift to fit your 33's? It's a nice looking Jeep.

|09-12-2010 12:20 PM|
You don't REALLY need the lift with most mfg 33" tires, cause they'll measure around 32+ inch's when installed, but
If you get BIG 33's- you'll be much better off with a 2.5" lift
Mine are 33.2" installed and I had to replace the bumpers too, but it'll workout !!

33's will fit fine so long as you get a wheel with 4.5" of backspacing or less. No lift needed.
Duratracs are awesome! Get some. hxxp://www.goodyeartires.com/goodyeartireselector/display_tire.jsp?prodline=Wrangler%20DuraTrac&mrkt area=Light%20Truck

|anthony20031||might need to stick with 32s then for now...we'll see|
|09-11-2010 05:28 PM|
|ESP||Also keep in mind that anything above 32 and you'll start needing to do a lot of other things to make it work. Your MPG will be off, you'll lose accelerating power with re-gearing or tuning, your MPG will also suffer much more from higher rolling resistance..etc|
|09-11-2010 04:48 PM|
|ESP||you can when fully flexing or full wheel lock with 33 but since your driving a Sport model, you'd only have to watch the turning.|

|KBR97||Stock jeeps are coming from factory with 32" tall tires. You could even fit 33" tall.|
