30s or 235s on stock TJ with no lift? Any pics?

OK, to start, I'm new to this forum. That being said, it isn't my first time in a forum environment. So I am well aware that this type of thread already exists and that people who have been on here for a while are likely sick of answering the same questions over and over for all the newbies.

I gotcha. Understood.

My problem, though, is that most photos posted within other like threads are no longer available... a lot of the threads are old (or getting there), and the pics that I was hoping to see are replaced by a red "x" in a box... hence the pic is no longer available.

So, with explanations / apologies out of the way, I'll detail the purpose of this thread.

I just bought my first Jeep last month... 2005 TJ Sport, all stock with 225/75R15 Goodyear Wrangler GS-A tires. I love the thing, but find that the tires look pretty wimpy... and they are also needing replacement regardless.

I really dig the look of lifts and large tires, but am not looking to do a lift any time in the near future... the Jeep is used primarily on main roads, back roads and less aggressive trails.

I'm looking at getting either 235/75-15 or 30x9.5-15... would love to go 31x10.5-15, however I believe that I'd need spacers, which I don't want.

Can anyone provide advice on which tires would be best suited - and look best - on my Jeep?

Anyone have photos of a stock Jeep TJ with no lift and 235s?

Anyone have photos of a stock Jeep TJ with no lift and 30x9.5s?

Thanks a million in advance... honestly appreciate your time.

Cheers!

You can get away with a 31x10.50 without the use of spacers. All you have to do is spend $1.50 on washers to adjust the steering stops.

i have a stock 06 with 31x10.50 and my tires rub on tight turns. I plan on adding washers this weekend to fix my problem.

Thanks for the advice! I reckon that adjusting the steering stops isn't a big job. Will it affect operation of the Jeep? Will it put any stress on other parts? Thanks!!

How bad do they rub & what are they rubbing?

Also, any chance you can post a pic of your ride? Would love to see how it looks with the 31s.

Cheers!!

They rub on the lower control arm when making a sharp turn like in a parking spot. Here is a link to modify the steer stop. http://www.4x4xplor.com/steerstop.html

Here is a picture of my jeep with the 31x10.50s. I hope all this answers your questions.

Peyts,

I just did my steer stop mod yesterday. It only took me 5 minutes for both sides. I used (1) 3/8" galvanized washer on each side and it fixed my problem. Pretty excited and .24cent each washers. Also i just bought my jeep 3 weeks ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy

Great looking ride! Those 30s look great. How do you find the BFG A/Ts? Are they loud on the highway?
