Largest Tire on 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport Stock
 
Hey guys I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport with stock rims. I currently have LT 245/75/R16 Tires and about to switch out. I got the opportunity to purchase 33x10.5x16 LT 3 stage lug, tsl bogger super swampers for $100 a piece. Will these be able to fit? Without a lift? If it needs a lift how much (will 2" be big enough)?

Any suggestions will help!

Thanks!

No lift needed but you will need wheel spacers or it will rub

Thank you! Any recommendation on where to get the spacers online for a decent price?

Is the a off road only rig? Those tires really suck on the pavement

But saying that, they will fit unless you do some rough trails were you have to articulate over large object. then they will rub the fenders. A leveling kit is all you need though

Check ebay for spacers i got mine for a decent price there and they do the job

I was planning on using these tires starting in the winter. Im guessing they will wear quickly on pavement?

Don't need wheel spacers for 10.5 inch wide tires. Only need wheel spacers (or new wheels) once you go larger then 11" wide

Lol boggers aren't exactly great winter tires....unless your talking about winter somewhere without ice and snow

I haven't personally used them in winter, but a couple of the guys I wheel with said they are ok on snow but ice sucks.

I've owned several sets of boggers years ago. Unless you have a ciping machine and cipe them 1/8 to 1/4 when the snow flies then again in mid winter.
But however doing this tears up the tread fast
I'd recommend at set of Goodyear Duratracks and be done.

Performance on ice seems to be about average, but in deep snow my swampers have performed awesome. Then again, mine are 13.5s. May differ with the 10.5s

Of course the downsides are the tire wear, and the road roar (which I personally don't mind).
That being said for the price you were offered, it seems like a cheap way to get out of the stockers and into a more capable tire.

If only there was a stickied thread answering how big of a tire can fit on a stock JK!!

What kind of swampers are you talking about. I know my SSR's and my Irocs did fairly well. I've also owned Old school TSL's and thornbirds. There's actually two different Thornbirds to be specific and the ones I owned were the larger channeled verses the common tight pattern.
Yeah that tire thread has pretty good info
