Tire questions!! ALL Opinions Needed

*Before I start, yes I'm fairly new, but I do know how to use the search function on the website. I have done a fair amount of research*

I'm a teenager, and I have been saving all summer. I just bought a 1.75in BB with new shocks. The kit also came with bumpstops. I'm ready to buy new tires now. I'm definitely getting treadwrights, The question is, what size should I get. I currently have an all stock Laredo with 235/75/15 Big O tires. I have the canyon rims which I think I may paint black. The diameter of the 235's is 29in. Would it be even a noticeable difference if I got the 30 A/T Puma from treadwright. If not, it seems like I should just stick with the 235's because of price. I would like the 31 A/T that they offer, but I dont think they would fit, or might rub bad with my BB. My zj is a DD, but I do want an aggressive look. So, guys, which size tires should I get? Keep the same(235's) go with the 30's or go with the 31's?

Go with 31's. Canyons are 15" right? You will need wheel spacers or put washers on your steering stops so the wider tire won't rub on the control arm when you turn all the way.

Do not get E load rated tires. They are great around town and on the trail but suck on the highway for a light duty truck.

Guard Dogs:


Get the 31" Guard Dogs.

I went with the 30" Pumas and regret it every time I look at my Jeep

Other than that, I absolutely love the tires - I have 25k on them now, plenty of highway and trail use, and they are just now starting to show wear. I am at stock height btw. With your BB and maybe a little trimming you'll fit the 31's just fine and IMHO the Guard Dogs look 100x better than the Pumas.
