Different tyre sizes front and rear

A straightforward question hopefully with a straightforward answer.

I have as standard 225/75/16 BF Goodrich tires fitted on my ZJ. I need to replace 2 tires ( rear ones).I have 2 almost brand new 235/70/16 BF Goodrich tires that come off one of my other previous vehicles.
Can I use these 2 tires on the ZJ ?
So I would have 2 x 225/75/16 and 2 x 235/70/16.

My tire place say I can but they are not Jeep specialists.

What kinda t case do you have? I've heard that if you have the 249, then no you can't. But you'd probably be okay if you have a 231 or 242, if you keep it in 2wd. Is yours a zj or wj? Cause your profile says wj? Maybe you has two? lol

Want your zj to be doorless in 60 seconds?

All 5 have to be the same size on the ZJs with fulltime transfer case

If you have the 2wd option on your t-case keep it in 2wd til you get matching tires, otherwise DON'T do it

DO NOT put different size tires on a permanent 4wd ZJ. you will destroy the viscous coupler in the transfer case

Reliability is relative
