what size tires? (poll)

okay next pay day i am purchasing a set of 2" leaf packs and a 2" coil spacer. i had planned on runnin 30s with this set-up but now i am undecided because of a post by someone sayin the main tire sizes are 31, 33, 35, and 37. 32s are for people not man enough for 33s lol. i have a set of 15x8 pro comp alloys with 3.75" of bs. my jeep is deff a GG right now. any who what would you run? 31s or 30s? HOLLAR!!!

I say do it right and go 3.5 and get 31's.

I wish I didn't go budget boost.

It's falling apart, and rides pretty bad offroad.

I work on Mopars

Maybe do sumthin like OME packs and a small shackle and up front get some heavy duty coils and 2" spacer. Maybe net you around 3" and go with 31s plus less trimming when you go to 33s.


I vote 30s cuz your in college and no money LOL. Like me but I freaking went with 32s LOL.

well i wouldn't consider me "broke". the only thing i pay for is gas, whatever i do with my gf, and the mods to my jeep so the cash isn't the problem. it whether im man enough to run 31s with 2" of lift.

You know what I will say..........33's if you plan to re-gear soon and upgrade your steering, C-Rok inner and outer steering reinforcement braces ($100 or so) and at least a ZJ V-8 tie rod upgrade ($80-100, new parts). If it's gonna be a while, then 31s. I know 31s will fit fine on a 2" lift and do more than you think it will offroad.

Oh, I would get new shocks too. My ~2" lift rode like crap with stock shocks.

There is no problem with what you have picked out for lift. I wish I went with the OME packs instead of stock ones because i will have to take them apart to put an AAL into it when I go bigger.

Are you planning on keeping the flares on? If you plan on trimming go for the 31's. I see 31x10.5's all the time and I wish I had gone with them. Not sure how mileage would be though.

Go with a 3.5 superflex kit. Close to the same price as the OME lift. The get 31's.

I'm forever grateful to Speedycat and RnEmOvr for their generosity

Not exactly. He's getting spacers up front and the OME packs out back. Now if we were talking the OME "kit", then I would agree with you.
