Biggest Tire Size on Stock WJ....

What's the biggest tire size you can put on a stock WJ? I know this is a severly repeated question, but since the search function isn't working I can't seem to find the information. Thanks.

31" tire if it is an AT, 30" of it is an MT. Will get minor CA rubbing with 31's at full wheel lock.

I have 255X70X16 on mine and only have a slight rubbing problem oin the drivers side, but not sure if it is the tire size or if my rubber fender well in moving in while driving. I have an ARB bull bar on and the fender well is not attached to anything any more.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

and yet people say with a 2.5 lift 31's are the biggest. Hell, I didn't even need wheel spacers, I forget who said they were required

Thats because when people say that they assume you'll wheel and not just pose on a speed bump

Guess I'll chime in again just for posterity.

245-70R17, diameter = 30.4 inches. Wear spot on pass front fenderliner, no contact with fenders or steering gear.

We really need to start talking about width and measured diameter rather than the metric ratios-- as indicated by the AT/MT observation, above.

2.5 bb, 265/75/16 revo's, that are anything but sissy.

I do NOT have any sway disc which probably helps, and in my areas the most I do is deep mud, there really aren't rocks, and frankly I don't need to be messing up the paint on anything. at FULL lock they rub some, but I never turn the wheel that hard since its hard on the power steering,

Why would you use that size? They came with 245/70R16 as a stock size. I keep seeing posts here and on Jeepsunlimited where people ask if 245/70R16 will fit--- OF COURSE A STOCK SIZE WILL FIT!
I have 255/70R16 on mine, and that's widely acknolwedged as the largest that will fit on a stock GC. Just buy a 2" BB for $100 and get 265/70R16 or you will regret it later.
