info on wheels, tires, spacers

New to the forum here and have a few questions. I own a 10 Liberty Sport, as of right now it has a 235/70/16 tire and stock rims. Love the jeep but hate thr stance width. Now i know this has been asked a few times but i just want to be clear. I dont really want to go up but i wojld like to widen the stance, maybe replace the wheel witb something inexspensive such as the black AR rims and maybe put a nice AT on it. I would like for tires to come out to at least thr fender. Any suvvesgions, not looking to do a whole lot of trails. Somethimg basic if i decided to go another way than i.wil at that time. Let me know.

if you widen the stance with spacers or a much wider tire you will get nasty wheel rub when turning. You could go up to a 245/70/r16 tire, but even that will rub under full turning lock.

I suppose if you don't want a lift you could try and get your hands on some Liberty Jet rims and tires. Those are wider, but a bit smaller to accomodate the extra width. that might give you the look you want.

Your best bet is still a proper spring lift kit like an OME or JBA kit and then some 245/75/16 or larger tires. I think the OME will allow up to a 255/75/16, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Positive it will allow a 255/70/16 though.

We really do get this question alot. As someone else said, we need a sticky with a tire sizing chart and advice on it.
