Question about bigger tires....
Hello I have a 2000 Wrangler 4cyl and was thinking about upgrading my factory tires to BFGoodrich 30x9.5's. The only problem is since I have the 4cyl is this gonna effect my speed much on the highway?? Or should I just go with a new set of factory size tires? Thanks

First off, welcome to the forum. :D

No it won't affect it much as you're really not making that big of a jump in size and weight.

btw check the web, those sizes come stockers on many TJs.. you can get some for cheap from someone that got a new set.

WOO HOO go i4 thats what i got and honestly if you want to get the best gas mileage i would say get a intake and exhaust it saved me alot of gas guzzlin and i had 31x9.5 but now on to bigger things i have 33x12.5 maybe will upgrade too 35 but fine now but i guess it also depends on your gear ratio as well
