    Default Upgrading Tire Size

    I want to put slightly bigger tires on my 06 Wrangler, but I am wondering what is the max size I can put on without any lift? Right now I have 28's on it, which is what was on it when I bought it. So, in short, its stock. I want to put 31's on it.

    I ran 31s on my 06 with no lift for a few months, you will get an occasional fender rub but nothing too bad.

    You can run 31s without a problem.

    31's are what came on Rubicon's. They have springs with a higher rate (they are stiffer) and generally sit about 1" taller than regular TJ/LJ's. You shouldn't really have a problem with 31's on your TJ though. Like somebody said, you may get a little rubbing when you are flexing.

    When you are ready to step up I have a relatively cheap way to do it. On the TJ I got some '03 Rubi springs and a 2.25" spring spacer, that gave me more than enough room for 33's.

    Go with the 31's but I'd put a budget lift and get a couple of inches. Still cheap.
