    Default Tire Sizes?

    I am looking to get 31" or 32" tires on my OEM Rubi rims, but I don't know what size I should be looking for? I guess I need to understand the rim dimensions to size 'em correctly, but anyone know what aspect ratios the tires in those ranges would have on a 16" x ?w rim?

    your stock rim is probly 7 or 8 inches wide so you should go with a tire that is 10 or 12 inches wide

    Go with 33's. As soon as I get a lift, 33's are going on....

    With a TJ, I was pretty sure it was good to have 3"s of lift somehow so there was no rubbing...

    I told you I my wife's got my pair Josh!
    I'm concerned about a 33" causing issues with just a 2" lift, looks like there's space but I think there was an issue with TJs rubbing on 33s w/ >3" of lift? It's not getting any higher until next year or this year if I can get a beater to drive to F-burg and back every day. Diego, got any cheap cars on hand?
