What do i need to make 33s fit on my stock jk
 
Thanks

It depends on the size. You can put 33's of the same width on and do nothing. 255.85.17. If you go wider you will need wheel spacers for the stock rims. If you get aftermarket rims, you will need 4.5" of backspacing or less. If you want more clearance you can add a BB or you can get up to 2" (depending on your stock springs) by adding HD Mopar coils. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/con...wap-55849.html

Nothing.

Wider aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers if using stock wheels.

I want to put a leveling kit on my stock 08 Sahara. I have 255/75/18's, what's the biggest size tires I can put on it without doing any other mods besides the leveling kit?

If you go with 10.5" wide tire (dont, there is no point) you wont need them, but any bigger than that you will need a 1.5" spacer. Thats all you "need" to do fo fit them. A lift or new springs are just good accessories to add to it.

Just curious- why do you say there is no point? Is there a downside to going with a larger diameter of the same width, or just a general downside to a skinnier tire?

I think this is a 34 inch diameter (on paper). 255/80/17 is a 33.

Personally, i think it looks silly with a taller tire that doesn't stick out of the wheel well. Also i would think you would increase the rollover risk because the added height isn't balanced out by a wider tread width.

mike636 07-20-2011 12:12 AM

So you think the size I have on her now will look fine with a leveling kit?

Depends on the State.

I've done some research and I think I'm going to go with 275/70/18 ( approx. 10.5 and 33's ). I was told by several different carriers that the BFG AT will fit my stock rims. I am also gonna go with the Teralift leveling kit I think. Thanks for all your help guys! :thumb:

You will like the teraflex. It's a great addition

Negative. 255/80/17 would be 32"

A 33" tire would raise the vehilce 1/2 inch over a 32". That is not going to significantly change you center of gravity to increase your roll over risk.

I'm getting 33 inches.

daggo66 07-20-2011 07:40 AM

Correct, I need to put my glasses on! 85 would be 34"

I run those exact size tires right now with a 3.5" lift and 1.5" Spidertrax spacers. Great tires. When I first got those tires, I ran them on my Sahara (18"wheels) while it was still stock for about 2 weeks prior to my lift install. No issues at all. Tiny bit of rubbing at full lock but no problem.

I chose stock Sahara rims, no lift/no spacers.

275/65R18 with no issues meets my needs.

I can step into and out of my Jeep without climbing up or down. There is ample clearance for any projected use I anticipate.

Being long an advocate of "taller/skinnier" vs the "fatter/wider" school of thought, when a family member showed up a few years back, their choice of ultra wide sticking out beyond the sides of the TJ looked pretty strange to me. And his set up was constantly flinging road debris onto his rig.

It doesn't matter to me what someone else chooses. We all have our own notions of style and functional needs. I remain amazed at the incredible variety of choices available.

mike636 07-20-2011 12:31 PM

Mine sits pretty high with no lift and the 18's in it, but I do want to lift it. I never thought if the center of gravity being thrown off but it makes sense. There are a few other options for tires besides the BFG AT, but I work for Michelin and those would be free lol. I thought about mud tires but I don't really think I need them. Thanks again for all these post. I am quite new here and have found lots of useful info!!

ince they are free, could you drop a couple of sets with me for "testing"? A variety of sizes would be good... let's start with some 37" sticky Krawlers.

mike636 07-20-2011 02:09 PM

Lol, if I could I'd get every jeep owner a free set! :wavey!
