need help. Maine laws suck

so im waiting on my new wrangler not sure what im going with yet that time will come but lets say it is a stock tj? well the problem is i cant do any lift what so ever in maine but i want some nice wide agressive tires on my jeep. what would you do? what is the biggest i can go without lifting it at all and what cn i do to get around lifting it? im very curios.

im thinking a set of 32 inch mudkings but i dont know if theyd fit. i wish i could go with 33s but NO LIFTS! damn its a crisis. thanks to all with help

The lift laws for maine does say anything about not able to lift?

BUT it does state you are restricted to 2'' differance in tire size from the factory recommended. (this will be on the door jamb sticker). So....33's....no go.

Here is the current lift laws for maine.... Maine Lift Laws | Vehicle Modification Rules

The link says 2" of factory recomended... so If you can put 31s on a stock TJ I would assume you could run 33s...

Max frame height: 24/26"... measure your frame where they mention. Front/Rear... maybe where the bumper bolts to, I'm not sure... that will give you how much lift you can do. and as much as people hate them, you can do a 1" body lift as well.

Or serious body work. Start cutting fenders and you can fit almost anything under there. I have a friend with a k5 blazer, his tires were rubbing so with a little help from Mr. Sawzall and Mrs. Sledge Hammer they dont rub any more...

haha im hoping i dont have to use mr sawzall or mr sledge. they sound like a mean pair of dudes.

i will probably end up going with 32s and some wheelspacers for now. got the old man damn near having a heart attack i keep giving him shit to let me throw some big tires under there. i mean worst comes to worst i could put stock tires on there and inspect it somewhere else. hes just got to be so complicated.

so about them wheel spacers. are they junk? will they even help my situation at all. i might end up doing a 4 inch lift with some 33s. i dont want to lift it unless im gonna go big. but thanks for the help

any reccomendations on a 32 inch tire?
