What size is your tire?
 
I'm curious to know what the average size for a tire is. I run 31's but my guess would be the 33's are the most popular size. What do you think.

toshpate 07-13-2010 02:50 PM

I have 31's on the YJ and 38's on the CJ

My tires are 39s. Most common.....stock. Most common upgraded tire.....31s. Most common upgrade with a lift....33s. Most common for serious wheeling.....35s.

I run 33's now but I want to eventually make it to 37's or 38's

Kate 07-13-2010 02:57 PM

35's, until they wear out then maybe 37's if I can still climb my crippled fat arse up in the Jeep then.

toshpate 07-13-2010 03:04 PM

and see my crippled arse wants to go down to 35's on the CJ and up to a 33 on the YJ, the 31's are perfect for sliding my butt in with out even a hop, but the 38's I have to use the step bumpers like a ladder and use my oh my handles to hoist up

Kate 07-13-2010 03:12 PM

Ohhhhh...
You're crimpled too?

I did have 3/4" spacers and was thrilled when we took them off.
It is just about ALL I can do to swing my leg up enough to get it in the tub now, then grab the handle and pull myself in.

Thank you for the warning, maybe I'll just stick with 35's after all.

how tall are you toshpate?

toshpate 07-13-2010 03:18 PM

I am almost 5'6 depending on the day and my shoes ha ha, and my CJ has been broken since I broke my knee so I dunno if I can even get in it, It was tough with two good legs and I think I have an inch or two on ya

I'm 5.5" but my chubbyness gets in my way a lot of the time too :rofl:

33's on my first Jeep. I drove a Jeep with 37's, I just don't see how someone could drive a beast like that on a daily basis. Do you just get used to it after a while? Or do you not drive it daily?

33x12.5x15 with a 4" lift. No plans to go larger for 2 reasons: 1. Stress and strain on the vehicle with anything larger. 2. Stress and strain on my aging body from having to climb into anything taller.

G-Pur 07-13-2010 08:35 PM

Just upgraded to 33's from 30's.

InfernoGirl 07-13-2010 09:34 PM

I run 33's, and that's as big as I'll go for a long time. Between me being 5'5" and my shorter than me kids, and my very short (5" on a good day) mother who I occasionally have to haul around, I don't want anything taller. My kids grumble now, and frankly I haven't shoved my mom into it since I lifted it and put on bigger tires.... she had trouble stock with 31's, but she's almost 82....... ;) It's good for her to exercise! :firedevil: :)

aghostinside 07-13-2010 09:44 PM

35x12.50s on my daily driver.

EdJonesJeeper 07-13-2010 09:45 PM

33's but if I can ever get a nice dd car I'll go 35's, unless i can get one tons I'll go 37's, unless I win the lottery I'll go 40's or unless.... ah the dreams of a jeep owner.

JDsDream 07-13-2010 10:02 PM

I run 31's on stock suspension and at 5'2" I still have to use the step to climb in, but I want to lift it another 2-3 inches.

Everytime I see one of your posts.. I see your sig and freak out a little for about a half second... haha

Oh and 35's on mine.. Getting a super 35 kit when money is right.. until then.. taking it nice and slow!!

N39-W120 07-13-2010 10:21 PM

When I was young it was a 28, now with age and good eatin' it is up to a 34

CenARJeepChick 07-13-2010 10:50 PM

Odd duck as usual
 
32x11.5-15 with a 2" lift. Although I ran them for 2 years w/o the lift just couldn't play in the rocks that way. And my plan is to stay with 32s. As previously mentioned at 5' flat I already have to climb/hoist myself in. In fact that's the only reason I kept the tube steps.

37x12.50 swamps here and she walks a little at 60mph
