I believe it has Bigger tires on it. I think my wife said 240/70
The spare was 250. So IDK if they are bigger or smaller or whatever. This is my First Jeep.

I think your tires are wider then stock, not taller I believe. Your stockers were 225/70.

Well, depends on what kind of tires you have. I've never played in the sand before, but I've heard mud tires suck in the sand.
And I won't say don't drive around, but get your rear bearing issue looked at as soon as you can

Well, neither of those numbers is a legitimate tire size. The width would have to be 225, 235, 245, 255, 265, etc.

Stock was 225 as mentioned by an earlier poster. A typical upgrade would be 235. You'll need to read the sidewall and post what you have.

But to state the obvious, yes, wider is better when dealing with sand. That said, the difference between a 225 and 235 is not enough that you would notice. Airing down would make much more of a difference than going up one tire size.
