I know they're measurements obviously, and I read somewhere else what it does actually means, just off the top of my head, I have no idea.
Anyway, I'd like to put at least a 32'' tire on, maybe a 33'', along with 10'' of width.
Bear with me, as it's a learning process, haha. I'll be up to par in a few.
You can put the 255/85-16 tires on there then and have a 33" with no other mods necessary. It will work great.
But it won't look "cool".
If "cool" is what you're after, an Unlimited sorta needs at least 35's to look right. And that takes 2.5" lift, wheels with 4.5" backspacing, 35" tires (obviously), and 4.88 gears. And then you'll want bumpers too...
There comes a point in every Jeep owners life when he has to prioritize his mods. Need vs want, function vs cool.
I mod function first; I move on to cool after I wear out function and have spare cash...
