What Size Tires and Lift on my 2011 Sport?
I want to upgrade my 2011 Wrangler Sport by getting bigger offroading tires. I have a few questions regarding this:
1) What size tires? I know this is a broad question, so let me elaborate. I would like to significantly enhance my Jeep's offroading capabilities without turning it into a complete monster truck. Price is not too big an issue, but obviously saving money is nice. So basically I'm looking for the happy medium. From what I have seen and read, my gut feeling would be to get 33 or 35 inch tires, but I'm not sure. From here, can anyone recommend good brands?
2) What size suspension lift? I don't want to risk any rubbing. What's the general rule for tire size vs lift size? Again, can anyone recommend good brands? There are so many different lift choices, how do you pick one?
3) With bigger tires, do I need to upgrade my axles or gearing? I've read I do and I've read I don't on different threads. If so, what should I be looking into?
Thanks in advance!
