I was going to get that size again for my new zj, but I got a killer deal for a set of 18's off a charger police car

I run 245/70/16 on my Silver 96 and 255/65/16 on my Black 96
Both look great and fill out the wheelwells on a non-lifted GC.
My opinion is 75's look too damn skinny.
My nickels worth, keep the change.

I'm running 235/75/15 BFG Rugged Terrains and they look nice on my stock heigh ZJ. I'm even doing a 2" BB and keeping them on.

I thought so, I thought I remembered 235/75/15 being printed on the sticker inside the door. Either way there is only like 3/8" difference in width and 1/4" difference in height between the two.

Upcountry packaged Jeeps more than likely put 235/75/15 on the door sticker. They had (very) slightly stiffer/longer springs, so a tiny bit of lift.
