New, but wtf?
 
So I bought My jk a while back, it was already lifted with the rims/tires. Since then I've added a K&N intake, front bumper, back bumper with tire carrier, winch, and some KC lights. I'm not sure what size the lift is, and the tire size has me totally confused. They're 325x60x18's. When I convert from metric to standard it's saying a 33, but if i calculate it from a standard 35 it's saying metric would be a 318. I've always bought standard sizes so I'm not too familiar with metric. Anyway, I'm pretty new to the whole jeep world, before this I've always had Chevy. I'll post a pic of my new jeep by my Blazer Z from my phone. If you can help I'd surely appreciate it!

Tire Size
 
Your tires convert to 33.4" x 12.8" x 18

Your metric tires in standard size are 33.35 x 12.8 inches. Of course that's the advertised size which always differs from the mounted size with the weight if the vehicle on them. If you look at the springs there may be a spacer between the top of the springs and the top of the tower. If there is a spacer there, then however tall it is will be the height of the lift you have. If the springs have been changed then you will have more difficulty figuring out what's been done to it. You can tell if they've been changed by looking for the mopar part tags on them. Post some pics and we can help you get an idea of what's going on with it. Welcome to the club!

You beat me to it! I'm long winded at times, especially when talking about Jeeps!

35 would be a 318 what? That's just the width. Assuming staying with 18" wheel the sidewall ratio would need to be more than 60 for it to be a 35. Like say a 315/70 18. A little more narrow.

Thanks guys! Yeah, the coils have been changed, I'll have to snap some pics tomorrow. That's the size I kept converting too as well, my buddy just kept arguing that a 35 is a 315 when I knew I had 33's. Having a jeep is alot different than the Z, Jeep owners tend to be alot more friendly. Btw, if anyone knows any wheeling spots around Ft. Benning (columbus GA) I would be more than happy to go out some time.
