not sure how people are getting any rubbing from 235/75r15

a bone stock zj will fit 30x9.5x15 without rubbing and 235s are slightly smaller

Same here, 235s shouldn't rub, unless your's is one of those 'special' jeeps...

I went with the 225's for now. Just went and got all of my emblems from the local junk yard. Cannot wait for warmer weather so I can start putting more into the jeep. So far I am impressed with it. I like the fact that I don't have to worry about snow any more. She goes through anything I throw her way!!! Got it a little muddy yesterday. And it's defiantly adding to the look

You have a 15" rim so why not get some 30 x 9.5 15?

As long as we're on the subject...can I get 31's with my Up Country? I do intend to do a bigger lift here this year but need tires soon and I don't have the budget for both right now

Ben, I have an Upcountry package and a 2" BB, just put 265/75's on (basically 32's), and need to trim a little, most people tell me they cannot tell I trimmed, even the PO

They are great tires. I'm running the Guard Dogs now for over a year. You can hardly see any wear. I think those Puma's are the only ones in that size though.
