33's/no lift won't change much. You'll lose a little on mileage. How much is totally dependent on your driving habits and where you live.What changes have you guys noticed going from stock to 33's no lift or 35's with a lift as far as mileage and ride ? I have a 2013 unlimited sport and looking to upgrade wheels and tires.
Tires?Thanks a lot for the input. I have a 373 in mine but I think 33s will be best for me. I love the look of 35's but I don't want to break the bank on getting it set up right. Any suggestions on who to buy from?
What's up.WXman said:Mileage? With "the combo" expect about 1.0 MPG drop, which for the average driver is about $20/month at current prices.
Handling? Definitely going to be different. With 33x12.50s now my JKU wonders in it's lane more and I find myself holding the wheel a little more tightly. It's not bad...but it's definitely different than stock. Also, above 60 MPH it feels like there is a parachute connected to my hitch now. This, I assume, is because of the tires sticking out past the fenders disrupting the aerodynamics, and the added rolling resistance of the tires. The faster you drive with larger tires, the more gas you'll use.
There is also some added vibration. Again, it's not bad...but it's noticeable. The Goodyears take a LOT of weight to balance and it shows. I have some vibes...but I had the same vibes with the Falkens. It's par for the course with large tires I guess.
Bottom line is.. Jeep uses the tires and wheels they use for a reason. They are quiet, smooth, and efficient. Do you want to go offroad or not?
