That would be a 33" tire...Ok so I'm gonna be gettin 20x10 rockstar rims with 305/55/20 nitto trail grappler tires...is a 2.5 coil spacer lift gonna be enough for em to clear???
I also have an 09 X. 285/70/17 (32.8 inches) are what I changed to and had a slight rub at full turn. You could maybe get away with 305/70/18 (33.8 inches) with non stock wheels with some backspacing or 1.5" wheel spacers, but you'll still probably have some rub. You'd be best to stay at 33' if you don't plan to lift.
Can't argue with that....as long as he doesn't crawl over anything larger than a cantaloupe.33's on 20's does get pretty low profile but contrary to what was posted above your Jeep will still be capable of going off road... 4 wheel drive will still work and the motor will not stop running when the tires get dirty.
Seriously? This topic only comes up once a day or so...try searching for "largest tire on stock JK" and see what happens.
If he goes on anything but fire roads, they will destroy those pretty wheels.33's on 20's does get pretty low profile but contrary to what was posted above your Jeep will still be capable of going off road... 4 wheel drive will still work and the motor will not stop running when the tires get dirty.
You're obviously missing the point. If you read my posts in this thread. I never said he CAN'T wheel it. Just that you won't want to because it will destroy the expensive wheels. Cosmetically anyway...305 55 20 = 6.6" sidewall
255 70 17 = 7.03" sidewall (stock Rubicon)
The .43" of sidewall you give up will apparently render your Jeep useless to anything more than smashing melons. Or maybe stock Rubicons are only good for highway use.
In this case don't buy a Sahara with 18" rims or you will be limited to dry pavement only.
And worst of all serious wheelers will hang their heads in shame and Starsky and Hutch will not think your Jeep is cool.
Don't get stuck in the 1970's.
More sidewall is good for rocks. For snow or sand or mud or just climbing a hill the 6.6"
of sidewall will not be noticeable vs. 7.03" of sidewall.
I do agree that less sidewall than stock is going in the wrong direction, but it is your Jeep and you should build it however you want.
Somebody already mentioned it but 20's are a jump in price from 18's or 17's so make sure it is what you want.
