Tire Size

I recently added a 2" BB on my 97 TJ. The 30x9.5x15s that I'm running look like baby tires now. I want to keep the stock rims, but I'm not sure what's the best size tire for it. I've looked throughout the forum for the answer but I'm probably not searching with the right keywords. Any suggestions?

With a BB I've always run 31x10.5. You could sneak 32s but there are limited options ay that size (i think best are if you look at metric equivalent). Wouldn't go wider than 10.5 on the stock wheels unless you want to run spacers.

I'm already running 1.5" spacers. Do you know a website that does standard to metric tire conversion? Thanks.

Off the top of my head no, but there is this great thing out there called Google. It will find for you in less time than it took you to type the question here. Give it a try some time.
