whats the biggest tire I can use w/ no lift
 
I have a 2007 4dr jeep rubicon and I need to get new tires. Is it possible to put 305/70r17 bf goodrich km2's on it without a lift? these tires are 34.1 inches tall by 12 inches wide.

what is the biggest tire i can use without a lift?

Your best bet is to go with the setup that a lot of other folks have. 33x12.5 Goodyear Duratracs on MB 72s 15x8. They fit without a lift, look meaty, stick out past the fenders a little, make a little rolling noise, don' steal too much power, dont weigh that much, and cost around 1300 if ordered from discount tire direct. You may or may not have to watch your stock front bumper for rubbing

Save your money and do the fenders yourself. Pluke has a nice vid on doing it

You could stick some 40s on there, just dont turn or hit any bumps and you will be fine.

Good call, you will have to do some trimming, you might as well get a 4" lift, way less work then trimming pinch seams and fenders.

You got a standard or auto? What diff gearing? Wondering what combo to get for an ordered 2013 to work best with 33s.. I'd like to go auto..maybe the 3:21 rearend?
