Tire size

Have a 95 jeep wrangler 2.5 SE. It has a 2" body lift. I am looking to put a better tire range on my jeep but I'm unsure of where to go. I don't want anything spectacular or outrageous. I am most interested in trail riding, not big on bogging or climbing. I just want to know what size would be best. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Everybody has different ideas about such things but if it were my Jeep I wouldn't go above a 31 inch tall tire. Two reasons, first you only have 2' of lift, and second you only have the 2.5 engine. Too tall of a tire (without regearing) and the 2.5 seems to lose a lot of power. My brother's 2.5 felt completly different with 33 inch tires. He is going to replace them with smaller tires.

31s would go well with your lift and planned use.

I agree with the others don't go over 31 without regearing. I just got 31s slow as a dog on interstate and I have the 4.0 5spd with upgraded intake and other little tweaks . Also I have no lift and rub quite a bit. O and for width I got 245 which I believe is 9.5inches wide and I just barely rub at full turn
So over all I'd go with 245/75/15? Stock rims? Check out kenda klever mr29 they are awesome
