Please help!! New lift installed...Which size tires should i go with...pics included

I just put on a new lift (used 2.5 RC springs for a 6cyl and Rancho 9000 shocks) on my 97 TJ SE 5sp with 4.10 gears. Should I go with 32x11.5x15 or 33x10.5x15 tires? I live in central Alabama so we don't have that many hills and I don't offroad that often. What do you guys recommend? Thanks for the input!

If it were mine, I would add a 1" body lift and do 33's.

With your 4.10s and a stick shift you should be fine with the 33's. I don't know how much lift you netted, or what kind of wheeling you do, but you may have to adjust your bump stops. If you want a little more room to stuff, go with the smaller tires. Good luck!

I prefer the taller, narrow look of the 33x10.50.

That's what I run on my LJ.



Are you running a 4-cylinder?

33s will make your 5th gear pretty useless.

Yes, it's is a 4cyl. I probably netted almost 3" up front with the lift.

33's would require 3.5-4" lift to run them properly. Out of them 2 listed sizes, I prefer the fat 32's vs. skinny 33's for looks and 4.10 gears. I have 2" OME SL with 1.25" JKS BL on 32x11.5 BFGs:

Wattapunk, your jeep looks good. Is that a 4cyl? If so, how does it handle the 32's?

I originally was planning on going 33's with my lift but I find 32's perfect for my 4cyl 4.10 gears. The 5th gear is still usable on hwy and 32's tires are vastly available and cheaper than 33's. Here's my BFG's 32x11.5 on M/T wheels w/3.75" BS.

If you don't wheel that much then stick with the 32's

I went from 32 - 33 (see profile pic) and there wasn't much of a noticeable difference in driving. I have a 6 cyl though and it pulls fine. Tag says 3.07 but I think the PO may have geared lower. I'll have to check. Clearance will be your concern, the 4 cyl may be an issue.

I have the same lift with 31's and I rubbed only on the front sway bar because of the stow brackets' location. That lift is recommended for no higher than 32's. Yes, with a 1"-1.25" BL you will clear 33's nicely, I believe. 4.10 gears is also okay, a popular choice as I have friends with that set up and they seem to like it.
