33x12.50 R15 Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radials. True measurement was something like 32 when they were new IIRC.

i found anything bigger than 31" tires will eat ur gas, i ran 33" on a 3" RC lift and they ate gas and now 31" are awsome even wheeling just got to be careful

32x11.50 BFG A/T's on 15x8 Crager D-window (4" BS). Stick out of the stock fender flare about an inch in the front and are barely covered at the top in the rear. Gas mileage has probably suffered since they're on, but I haven't checked it yet. They are pretty quiet compared to my friends Goodyear MTR's on stock Rubi wheels which I had on for a week to pass inspection (mine were sticking out too far for the great state of PA). He doesn't rotate them frequently enough and now the tire treads are feathered.

215's baby! If you don't get out of my way, I'll just drive right over you!

They came with the jeep when I bought it, I can't wait until they wear out so I can put 30's on it!

31x10.50 M/Ts. Not to hard on the gas milage or accerleration; just takes a little more effort.

A/Ts would be a little better on gas but not enough to warrant their worse offroad performance...

255/85/16, a little skinny but around 33" tall. They go through and over anything so far.

I've got 30's on the XJ with 3" lift. I won't goto 31's or bigger unless I regear. 31's I'll go with 4.10's, 33's I'll go with 4.56's. It depends whether or not I have the funds for a SYE when I get new tires.. (meaning I'll stay with the 3" lift, and 31's)

I've got 31" BFGs under my 3" OME lift, and it suits me very well. It's a nice setup to have for a DD because it rides nice and is capable enough.

I currently have 31's...I'd go with 33's but that would mean re-gearing since it's a daily driver...and if I re-gear, I might as well just get lockers...I would need longer coils, new leaf springs, SYE...The list goes on and on.
