Exclamation Need New Tires! Will these fit without lift?

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum. I'm Ashlyn, live in South Florida!

I recently got my first Jeep on New Years. '05 TJ. It's my life, I'm sure you all understand.

Anyways, I still have my little baby stock tires on now. And the tread is awful. I've hydroplaned twice now on wet roads. I really avoid driving if it's raining at all anymore. I'm in need of new ones.

Thanks to the beautiful invention of craigslist, I found some at an amazing price. The question now is, will they fit?

They're 33x12.50x15 Procomp All Terrain's. A Set of 5, for only $400. Rims not included. I've spoken to the guy already, and certain it is no scam. Tread is about 70% on four of them, and one is brand new.

Being new to the whole jeep thing, forgive me... but will these fit on my Jeep without a lift or axle change? I'm worried it'll be a tight fit, and they rub when I turn. But I'm not sure. What do you think?

Thanks for your time. Looking forward to your answers/suggestions!

Ashlyn

you'll need a small lift, you can just do a budget boost and they will fit i believe.

Thanks guys! Any suggestions on cheap budget boosts or lift kits? This is my jeep fresh from the dealership. Tires and rims still look the same. I've heard and read mixed things on if they'll fit or not.
Hopefully I'll figure it all out.

best bet is to find a friend that has 33's and just set one of their tires against your jeep to look at hight, and i was goinf to do a rough country 4" that was like $400 before stuff like a slip yoke eliminator and axle regear.

Blahhh... What to do... Bottom line is, I need some new tires. And if I'm going to buy them, they're going to be bigger. I guess I'll just look around more. Unless anyone else has any other suggestions. Thanks everyone.

Well on the other side is new and buy a warranty on them. Yeah I know, more money, but at least you are getting new, and the correct size without a lift, and a warranty if something goes wrong.

Check out Discounttire.com, they have some great deals on tires, and tire wheel combos going on. You can call em and they'll set you up with what you need. And they toss in a discount to Wrangler Forum members.


With the Crag's list 33's you are going to need a lift otherwise you will have all kinds of rubbing problems. Along with the lift, you may need to go with different back spaced wheels too.

If you want to go that route, check out OEM, Old Man Emu, for a lift kit, nothing but great marks on their stuff.

And Ditto on the welcome, from another Florida member up the road in Lakeland.
