05 wrangler tj tires

I'm riding on stock suspension but am looking for new tires with a little more aggressive look. I've added some flat top fenders, any suggestions on how big I should go and what the cheapest route is?

The cheapest route? I think 31s are as big as you can go. I just put 30s on, didn't know what 31s would to my speedometer. BFG ATs, quite and I like them. I don't think there are many 30s around anymore.

Cheap and big = budget boost and small body lift.
Check out the many many posts on this subject.

I just put 31's (BFG AT) on my '05 TJ. Using my GPS unit, I found the odometer to be about 7.7% off (low) and the speedo -- strangely -- just about spot on.

Also, there is a bit more feedback coming thru the steering wheel, not DW bad, but more noticeable than the stock 225/75/15 that I replaced. My suspension is totally stock.

Here's a pic of them:

I just put on the 30 x 9.5 15 and I am fine with them. How does 30 x 9.5 15 compare to 225 x 75 15?

TDImark, what wheels are those? 31x10.5 is the largest you can run with a stock suspension, from what I've learned over the past couple of months

I was going to go the 30/9.5/15 route before a friend of mine offered his larger tires to me which were sitting in the garage unused. It was an offer I couldn't refuse. I like them a lot.

I was using this website for tire comparison, because I was asking the same questions you are: Tire Size Calculator
