Don't know for YJ.

I'm just guessing here, but probably a 29 inch. I had to put a 2 inch lift on mine ('91 YJ) to clear 31x10.50 on 15x8 inch rims.

That hurts. I like 30s and can be happy with a Jeep with 30s, but less than 30 doesn't make me happy. Oh well.

So if your info is correct, his largest tire option is 235/75R15. At least there are several good Lt load C options for that size tire.

Just realized I typo'd that one. Should be a 31x10.50r15. I edited my earlier post just so there's no confusion.

My TJ had 30x9.50R15 tires on them when I bought it from the previous owner. They were pretty worn and after about a year of driving it I put the 31x10.50R15 BFG Rugged Terrains on it. Amazing how different that looks on a TJ vs a YJ. On the YJ it was lifted and I had 15x8 rims, so they stuck out from the flares a little and looked huge. On the TJ, it looks normal. I'm eventually going to go up to a 32x11.50 or 33x12.50 but that will mean a lift down the road. Probably when these tires have about 50% tread left I'll put them on craigslist as a set of 5 and see what I can get for them to go towards the new rim/tire combo.

just so you know, 235/75x15 and 30/9.50x15 are pretty much identical in actual size really. they may vary up to half an inch or so depending on manufacturer, that's about it.
most 30" tires actually come in at about 28.5-30.0 inches tall. 235's come in between 28.5 and 29.5 or so.
if that's the size you're going to be buying, just get the tread design you like in either of those sizes and call it good.

235/75R15 are typically approx 28.8 to 28.9" tall.

30 x 9.5 R15 are typically 29.3 to 29.5 tall, and a few brands are 29.8 tall.

30s are also approx 0.25" wider than 235.

I recommend 30 x 9.5 R15.

31 x 10.5 might rub springs at full steering lock.

yep, just what i said, varies between manufacturers. i've seen 235's taller than 30's. also depends on the type of tread sometimes, too. big lug mud treads tend to come out taller than a/s or a/t types.

Your and my numbers were not tbe same. That might be because I was quoting sizes for AS and AT, not MT.

Most people buying 235 or 30 buy AS or AT.
