Noobie Tire Size Question


I did some quick search on here, and i can't seem to find wanted to create a thread.

As you can see from my user name, i am a complete noob when it comes to Wranglers. I recently bought my first Jeep Wrangler. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S, 2 Door, Manual.

It seems that my Jeep comes with 31's for tires. I was thinking about upgrading to 33's, however i was wondering if i would need to Regear? I live in NYC, and my Jeep is my daily use vehicle, and because of this, MPG is pretty important to me (as much as MPG wranglers can give me...hahaha).

If i need to regear, then maybe i'll just get a bit more aggressive 31's (all terrain) instead...

I am not going to go off road (other than nyc potholes) and just want to have good clearance during snow storms here...and of course look good as well...hahaha.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

And i'll definitely have more noob questions to come...

No need to regear with 33” tires.

Your speedometer will be off (can be recalibrated). Also your MPGs will go down a little but that is the known trade off with larger tires.

Since it's my daily driver and MPGs are a factor, I went with a wider, more aggressive all terrain just under 32"

I put 35s on to upgrade from my stock 33s on the rubicon. A lot of people said a Regear wasn’t necessary. But I feel it is. The Jeep is sluggish. So I’m back to stock for now until I can Regear. I think it wears over time on the tranny by not regearing.
