Anybody has 225/75R15 on TJ?
I'm thinking to change my tires from 33X12.5X15 to 225/75R15.

I'm wondering if anyone out there has 225/75R15 on his/her TJ (mine is 2004 X) and if you have any issues/advice/recommendations on this matter?

Thanks a lot.

That is a big drop in size. Are you getting rid of the lift as well?

No I don't have a body lift but suspension spacers.

You dont say why the drop in size(for better MPGs) You could re-gear your axles to get back the power and millage. Going down to 31s would help as well and still look good with the spacer lift.

I've got the 22's on my 05 X, and I absolutely hate them. They're so small, and while I still get pretty good ground clearance because of the simple fact that it's a Jeep, I definitely find myself yearning for bigger tires. My wife runs 31's on her YJ, and they're just about perfect. I'm looking at getting a pair of them myself as a matter of fact. Hope that helped.

I have the 225/75R15 goodyear wrangler tires on my 99tj (no lift). The tires do the trick for my jeep (which is my everyday driver). I think once these tires need to be replaced I'm going to go to a bigger size (maybe like 30in) and spacers to give it a little beefier look.
