I have a stock JKU sport. It has 225/75/R16s. I'm fine with R16s.

on Craigslist I've seen people dumping these tires and R18s (I assume they didn't like the R18s?)

My use would be mostly roads, some mild overland travels, some gravel, some dirt. No rock crawling, no Mudding, etc.

My concern is sharp rocks on the roads, crap on the roads (drywall screws, spark plugs, etc. All things that have taken my vehicle tires out in the past)


Question(s)

(1) Does a higher Ply rating (ie 10ply) make the tire "tougher" (able to withstand road debris)?

(2) What is a reasonable wide tire for my R16 configuration. Don't want to have to had spacers, or change the spare tire rack, etc. I'm not adding a lift kit either.

thanks in advance.

Check out this thread: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f27/largest-tire-on-stock-jk-heres-your-answer-142837.html

Between the two they offer a better explanation than I can give :)

Good luck! :thumb:
