'35 Tires

The largest you should go is '35 inch tires on '15 inch wheels, with a '12 wideness. Maybe '12.5 wideness if you can get a good price.

Here's some serious tires in your range:

depends on how high you want your jeep & much $ you're willin' to spend for the lift. if you're not going to lift it, 30x9.50x15, or 31x10.50x15 is probably your best bet. being in NY you should look at tires that have the Mountain/Snowflake rating on the sidewall, ie: Goodyear- Duratrac, it's alittle more aggressive looking and performance is awesome as told by many on this forum. The General Grabber also has this rating, but I agree it's not very aggressive looking. I believe the BFGs also carry this rating, but don't quote me on it. go to Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels and check the reviews and specs. happy hunting

Is your jeep lifted? How high makes a defiance in the tire size. I have 38.5 on my 95 YJ on 15x10 rims TR bead locks with spring over. Pitbull tires Mad dogs work well on road and off. So far thy have been the best I have ran.

31 is as large as you can go on stock suspension. You may still get a little rub on a full turn. A little more info on your rig would be helpful.

I'm sorry that i failed to mention that its stock right now. No lift or anything. I want to get it lifted later on and suspention and everything but right now tires are first only because i messed them up off roading and 2 of my tires has holes in them so they go flat almost every day.

Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's in 31'.
Or, Pro Comp Mud Terrain tires in '31.

Those tires won't work for daily driving.

My two favorites are the Goodyear Duratracs and Maxxis Bighorns. I haven't had the Duratracs long enough to say how the wear will be, but the big horns wore amazingly well for a agressive tire. Both have handled everything i have tried to do with ease.

Wait until you lift it. That's the best advice I can give you. Do lift and tires at once.

Say you buy 30 inch tires now then you put a 4 inch lift on your Jeep. 30 inch tires are going to look too small and you're going to want 33's under you're 4 inch lift.

This means that in the end, you're buying 2 sets of tires which is much more expensive than just one set.

Just my 2 cents

Agree with YJMan...the cost to go from 31s to 33s is very little. I did my lift before tires. Two of the tires had a slow leak and I made do by checking them a couple times a week. Don't waste your money...save for the lift and bigger tires...be patient.

Hi, I've been reading this thread and still have a question.
If I want to go with the size that most people recommend, 31" what # should I be looking for, I see that most tires are something like P225/50R16 91S I have no idea what these numbers stand for or how do I get to a 31 x 10.5 x 15 tire. I will also need a set of rims, the Jeep I just bought ('07 Wrangler X, 2 Dr.) came with the small tires and cheap looking rims.

Ayo,
Sounds like you are where I was about 6-8 weeks ago. I knew the look I wanted, but I had no idea what would fit my Jeep, as well as, what order I should get the stuff done in. If you "NEED" tires & can afford to do a lift now, it is better to do it all at once & get exactly what you want. If you can't do the lift right now, then I'd still get some nice 31x10.5 AT's(Good Year Duratrac, or BFG AT), that way when you can do your lift you can sell the tires and get a little back on them... just my thoughts.

Also, I am waiting for my tires(33x12.5x15R) from discounttire.com

You can't be the pricing & the customer service... so far.
