    Default tires

    Hello. I am curious to know if anyone out there knows the max tire size you can put on a stock Jeep. I have a 2002 TJ X that currently has 235/75/15 tires on it and I pulled up to a Rubi the other day and saw that it had 245/75/16 and the 245 looked like it would fit. Any ideas out there?

    31s for sure. Not too sure about the metric size.

    31s are a 255 or 245. 265s are 31's just shy of 32

    You can do 31's however they'll be stuffed and flex will be limited or rubbing.

    Thanks for the responses. I just found a website called redrock4x4.com that has a conversion calculator in their Tech section. I figure a 255/75/16 (31.1) would be the right tire. I have had two YJs (89&95) that have been modified by someone else and I always wished I could do it my way. I finally got my 02 TJ that is stock and I can do the build the "right" way this time. I've got to wait to start the build but my Jeep needs new tires and I want to do some very mild wheeling until I get some of this Jeep paid for. Thanks for the help.

    I had a 2 inch budget boost and a one inch body lift and ran 33 with no problem. The budget boost was just some rubber pucks that you can buy online for about 40 bucks for 2 if I remember correctly.

    If you want a set of 33, I can sell you my five for 450.
