Tire size for 18" and 20" rims
 
I just purchased a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. Im debating on purchasing some black 18" or 20" rims. I know most people on here hate 20" rims. Im leaning toward the 20" rims because I want a clean look on the jeep with just a rugged tire. I havent ruled out staying with an 18" rim but I wanted to find out what tire size I should go with for an 18" and a 20" rim. I will not be lifting the jeep and I dont want the tires to rub but I want the biggest that will fit without rubbing. I appreciate the help.
Thanks.

The biggest tire you can fit on a stock JK w/o rubbing issues is a 285mm I believe. aka, 33"

Read this...it doesn't deal directly with the larger wheels you're thinking about, but it'll give you some valuable info about some of the rubbing issues you're likely to encounter, especially when it comes to tire WIDTH.

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!
