The only point of this post was to show that I was capable of fitting 33's without a lift and no rub. I don't get why everyone insists it rubs even though I've been driving it this way for about a week now, hit plenty of potholes and it drives fine. On the second picture on the back side of my rear wheel there's as much clearance as there is on the front side of the wheel well if that's what everyone's *****ing about. I'm still lifting it when I get the money so everyone needs to take a chill pill...

Tire size vs clearance. The safer way would be to lift then size up tires. Both are expensive to do; that's why people tend to lift first to avoid issues like rubbing etc. You're probably fine if you're a very aware driver, you take it easy, and its going to be a street queen until you lift it... just a risk most would go out of their way to avoid. Good luck with the lift.

The comments about rubbing relate to suspension articulation, not rubbing from driving on a flat surface or a mild bump at a slow enough speed. No need to get defensive, that's just how it is when it comes to suspension vs tire size.

It's more of a "should it be done" rather than a "could it be done".

Yeah it's a street queen until I get a bigger rear axle and 4:88's. I'm not sure if I want to put a 2.5" or a 4" lift though

Just make her you don't sipe your tires in half with your fenders before you lift it.

Driving it for a week? Where? In and out of the garage to get the mail?


Bring that here to IL. I guaran-f'in-tee you that rear tire will crease the tub behind the tire with the roads out here.

Come back with a pic like the one below with your current setup and we'll agree that you have no rub with 33's and a stock setup.

if your looking for approval you're on the wrong site, most people here do things the proper way and will point out mistakes. there is another wrangler forum where you will find some that approve of half arse things like this, just don't ask them a question that requires experience or knowledge.

He means the logical thing to do would be put on a lift and then put on bigger tires later. OR this crazy idea of saving money for a while until you can buy both a lift and tires and do them at the same time.

Then again...I know how people are about instant gratification! That's why many have so much credit card debt....

We point things out because we are willing to back it up with constructive advice. That last part is the most important. Anyone can point out mistakes but its ones who are willing to help rectify someone else's problems that we come to this site to seek out help.

We judge a little but wil see you through til you get it right. Sometimes even on your doorstep.
