Your stock rims aren't 15", unless something dramatic happened in the Jeep world overnight and I missed it. :D

I checked your profile, and there's no info on what year / model Jeep you've got. Tell us and someone will be able to help you, I'm sure...

You can get great tire prices right here from the forum vendor, Discount Tires Direct. I'll send you a pile of links to tire/wheel sites when you cough up your Jeep info.

Quid pro quo.

"Baby tires"...I like it. :thumb:

If it's a sport, you've got 16" rims (sport S, 17" rims).

Problem is, the rims are 16x7's (or 16x7-1/2's...I forget). An odd size. You'd be best served buying 15x8 rims and some 33" tires. If you get rims with 4.5" backspacing or less, you should be able to run 33's without a lift, although off-road you may have some rubbing issues, depending on the width of the tire.

The only thing to watch out for with the 15's is that some of them won't fit over the Wrangler brake calipers. However, if you PM the DTD rep here on the forum (or call them on the phone) they'll let you know what's what.

Here are the links I promised you, since you came through. :D

Kidding. I'd have come up off em either way.

The last link is a tire calculator that you can use to compare tire sizes in more easily understandable terms.
