Mickey Thompson Tires

Does anyone know if I can put Mickey Thompson 265/75r16 on a 1994 YJ properly?

Without any lift at all I don't think they will fit. It works out to 32 x 10.43 x 16.

I had 31s on my stock wrangler with no lift and extended fender flares. [Minor Rubbing on the fender flares on turns]

Might bealbe to get away with them if you put in a 2" shakle lift.

Mickey Thompson tires and lift

I recently purchased a 3 inch rough country body lift kit. Will that help any?

With a 3 inch lift they should definately fit. I have 33s on my Wrangler with a 3 inch sup. lift.

Mine seemed hurt with my 31s. Was great anything from 0 to 45mph. Highway speeds sucked. Of course they did with stock tires to.

You'll lose some power with those. Just regear to get it back, put it to 4.27.
