tire size question

What is the largest tire I can put on my stock TJ...I believe the rim is 15x8...I've been told I can get a 31" 15x10.5 on that rim...is this correct? Before you ask, no, I have no lift.

You can add 1" spring spacers on top of the coil springs, without changing anything else.... makes room for 32" tires.
Or just do a 1.25" body lift for 32's.
Some options HERE.... and HERE.

Also please read HERE...... and welcome to Jeep Forum!

Stock wheel might give you some rubbing when you run 31's, when wheel is fully turned. Aftermarket wheels usually have less backspacing which eliminates this problem.

Or do a 2" BB.

I'm rocking the 31x10.5's stock and the only time I have any rubbing is in the rare case that one of the front tires gets fully stuffed. Even then I only hear it contact for a second and it's never hurt the tires. You should be good to go with the 31x10.5's
