How Wide Tires Can You Go on Stock Rims?
New, 1st time Wrangler owner here (got rid of the PITA to work on "03 VW fact gave it away to a guy in need who's mother got cancer...only had 29k on it). In fact, 2 other friends and I bought new Wranglers in the last week (more friends might follow). Now I have 2 toys to play with (this for the mud and snow and a Corvette Z06 for speed). I'll be giving this to my daughter when she drives in 4 years.

In anycase, I have a friend who has the 2011 Sahara with stock tires of 255/70R18. He bought 2" spacers and wants wider tires on the stock rims. Does anyone know how wide he can go without issues? I believe the rims are 18x8.

Don't quote me on this but it think up to an 12.5" wide tire can be used on the factory wheels but wheel spacer will be needed or a change in rim with more backspacing.
