Hmm well on stock rims you can't go wider then 10.5 inches and without lift you can't go taller then a 33 or in your case the metric equivalant. Do you offroad your Jeep? or is this jeep strickly a road queen?

Not too much off road (trails) but I do pull a waverunner trailer on the beach a lot. So to give me better traction on the beach plus I want it to look aggriessive/beefier. Black jeep with black rims. I want a more aggriessive look. Thanks

Not at first, I think the widest tire I can put on is 10.5. I just want a beefier tread, like to go wider not really to concerned about higher/bigger tire. Thanks
