315/70r17 - On a Stock JK - here it is.

Haven’t installed my lift yet, but wanted to throw this thread out as an easy search if anyone ever needs it. This is a stock suspension 2013 JK2D. The tires are 315/70r17 Kumho Road Venture MT’s. The plate under the stock bumper had to be removed to avoid rubbing. There is no touching now, but very little room between tires and rear pinchweld in the back. It can be done, it is driveable. Just don’t go flexing. The wheels are RBP 94R in 17x9 and -12 offset. More pics and progress will go into my build thread.

Great to see this! I was just asking if I could fit 305/70/17s while I wait to get my lift on. Posts like these really help! +1


What "plate under the bumper" are you referring to though? You mean the air dam?

It’s gecko green, paint code PFM if I remember correctly. And it’s original to the vehicle so I guess at some point it was offered for “2013” models haha.

There are few people saying it cant be done. Most of us however are asking why? Why stuff a tire under there that limits the ability of the Jeep?

Potholes. Speed bumps. Driveways.

Enjoy your fenders while you still can. Nice looking rig BTW.

I assume it’s all personal preference. I’m putting a 2.5” lift on soon, so the “limitations” will cease to exist for mine. But there are plenty of people I imagine who don’t have a ton of money to drop all the time or all at once. I’m not here to judge their budget or their purpose in owning a Jeep. To each their own. And whatever pothole causes that much drop out would be an insurance claim - they ain’t stuffed to that extreme. It’s funny this was actually a pretty popular look on wranglers back in the 80s and 90s.

I'm sure he has his reasons. But a good example is me. I have a lift kit all ready to go, got a good deal on tires, and needed to know if I can even have the tires in there for about a week before I can get to installing the lift kit.

Iím not knocking you. I know you intend to lift the thing and I know why you posted the picture. Iím just saying, youíd be surprised how little it takes to get the up-travel to put those tires into your liners and fenders. You donít have enough bumpstop to limit the up-travel to prevent damageóitís not about how much lift it has, itís about how much upward travel remains in the suspension.

As someone else said, you can get those tires into your liners/fenders turning into the driveway with that size and stock suspension. You donít have to hit a crater to do it.

Doesn't take a big pot hole.
A lot of factors are involved in compression and expansion of your suspension system. You can hit a nice big pothole and hardly flex at all. Conversely you can hit a small anthill bump and completely compress. In other words, speed, weight, balance are all huge factors which figure into it.



My advice.... go slow until you get your lift on... or you WILL lose a fender or 2. It won't be as hard as you think.

Definitely plan on being careful! I'm certainly not advising new jeepers or anyone for that matter to stuff as much as you can with no lift. I can't wait to get my JKS 2.5" on. Just need a couple helping hands and it'll get done.
