Hello all, I recently purchased my first Jeep ever on this past Labor Day. It is a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport (4 door). I wanted to see what a good tire size would be with stock height. I’m used to my 07’ SRT & my motorcycle so this is completely new to me. What wheel/tire size & width would look nice in stock height without tire rub. Thanks in advance.

JK is the prior generation of Wranglers; ran between 2007 and 2018.

These are all Jeep Wrangler generations:
  • CJ - 1944 through 1986; CJ stood for Civilian Jeep
  • YJ - 1987 through 1995; first Jeep to use the name Wrangler
  • TJ - 1997 through 2006; the first modern-day Wrangler; introduced the Jeep Quadra-Coil suspension, used to this day
  • LJ - 2004 through 2006; was a long wheelbase TJ; hold their value amazingly well
  • JK - 2007 through 2018; introduced the 4-door Wrangler
  • JL - 2018 through present
  • JT - 2020 through present; pickup a.k.a. Gladiator

I know this is pure speculation but I wonder if they will keep the existing JL designation when the PHEV is released next year.

Looks like the same body and chassis almost though...

With regards to tires, the absolute largest you can fit on a stock Sport/Sahara without rubbing is 33-inch tires.

Stock tires are 31-inch on Sport and 32-inch on Sahara. I have 275/70R18 BFG KO2s on my stock Sahara. That works out to be 33.2 x 10.8 inches. I don’t rub 99% of the time; rub slightly at extreme articulation.

You can explore and visualize different tire sizes on here:

BTW, a popular upgrade by Sport and Sahara owners is to buy Rubicon takeoff wheels and tires. They measure 285/70R17, or 32.7 x 11.2 inches. They won’t rub. Rubicons come with BFG KO2; it is an excellent all-around tire. You can check Craigslist and eBay.

Here are some Sports with Rubicon takeoff wheels and tires.

There are one million different wheels you can get for Wranglers. You just need to make sure they have the right width and offset.

Over the years I have bought either used takeoff wheels, or new wheels from Quadratec. Every wheel Quadratec sells is guaranteed to fit. You get free shipping and a 5% discount at Quadratec for being a forum member. You just need to PM them.

Very wise advice there...
