New Buyer!

Hello everyone,
I am new to this. Just joined today. I have a 2011 Wrangler Sport and almost EVERYTHING is still from the factory. I have never purchased and wheels/tires or anything before. I have a question and I feel a little dumb asking so hopefully someone can help me out.

How do I go about buying some bigger tires? What do I need to know? What are requirements? What is a general pricing?

I would really appreciate any help!
Thank you!!

How big? What type of tires? You can't go much bigger without lifting. Could be spending anywhere from $700-$5000. Just depends what you want.

Best advise: DON'T RUSH MAKING A DECISION. Especially if you are new. Though you are excited to get bigger, better stuff, you are likely to make a wrong (and costly) decision. Spend several weeks, if not months educating yourself about JKs and what others run, limitations at stock height, wheel back spacing, wheel spacers, etc. Here's a tip, check craigslist until you find some bigger used wheels with tires, or a set of bigger tires that'll work on your rims. If you like them, run them till they need replacing. If you don't like as much as you thought you would, you didn't spend a fortune.
