    I've got a 95 Wrangler and I'm needing to get some new tires. What is the maximum tire size for a factory rim? Right now I have P235/5R15. I want something a little bigger but not too big becuase this is my daily commuting vehicle but I also use it when I go hunting.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Lots of people use 31x10.5 tires on their factory wheels. They will rub the fender flares slightly if used hard offroad but it really isn't enough to worry about. With a 2" lift you could fit a 33x10.5 on your factory wheels.

    A friend of mine has 30X9.50 BFG Allterrains on his stock 90 YJ... they seem to work well and only rub a little when the wheels are turned all the way to one side.

    oh no . i have a 33 12.50 15 mounted as a spare. have not had to use it yet . should i rethink this ? could not justify a fifth american eagle just for a spare. had it mounted where they no habla engish, so did not get a argument . oh ya , it was mounted on a factory wheel. any thoughts. .odax :-?

    The factory rims usually have the max tire size stamped on the inside of the rim. I have 31 10’x on mine ( alloy five spoke) and they’re just fine. Just be careful, jeeps with those small tires, like the 235’s look a bit odd, don’t you think?[addsig]

    A 235 or a 30x9.5 is about as big as you can go on a YJ with no lift. You can install a 31x10.5 on a TJ with no lift.[addsig]
