Tire size?

What would be the biggest tire size possible with minor trimming needed, at stock height?

Thx, T

biggest wheel on a stock ZJ was a 16. that was 96+ limited and the 98 5.9 limited
the rest were 15s

Reliability is relative

31 is really cutting it close and it won't be too minor in the trimming. 30x9.5 would be a lot safer/better. Especially if this will see anything other than pavement
