Oka for starters I'm sorry if this is in a wrong section.....Now Im i the process of buying a 88 jeep wrangler and Im getting this great deal on 35x12.5x15 pro comp tires from another guy and I just was wondering if there was a min lift to put them on? The tires on there are 31x10.5x15 but there smoked. Just wondering if I can put then on or I need to invest in a lift kit and if so what is the best/budget friendly I should get. Thanks

You'll need at least a 4.5" suspension and probably even a 1" body lift. I have a 6" SOA lift with a axle that's 3" wider than stock and almost rub. If the axle was stock width it would run for sure in front. Wheel offset makes a big difference too.

Stop, don't buy those! There is no budget friendly way to fit 35's safely on a stock jeep. You need about 5+ inches of lift to start, and that's not addressing the stock gears turning those big meats, or the weak rear end.

The rear end won't support those tires, it's notoriously weak. I busted mine with 29" tires COASTING down a hill. Ontop of that, you will be so grossly under-geared that you might just have to suffer with driving it in low gear.

You have a lot of work to fit 35" properly,

-Lifting (involved process to fit that much lift, longer brake lines, driveshaft work, etc)
-Larger fenders to allow more tire clearance.
-Properly spaced wheels
-Larger axles

The list can go on and on depending on how cheap or how proper you want to do it.

Replace the tires with what's on there and sell the 35s on CL and make a buck.

Everyone above is correct

If you want to put on 35s get about 4K in spare bucks and at least a month before you are on the road.
