Wj 3" OME tire size

I know this is on here somewhere but i searched for awhile and can't find my answer so here goes.

I have a 2000 with the OME HD 3" lift with 1/2" pucks up front. I had the 255/75/16 BFG mudders on the Moab wheels. It rubbed a lot even with some fender trimming so I took them off and running the stockers. What size tire would you all run with these rims? Looking at the Toyo AT II's. Thanks

From what I've read, anything around a 31 should work just fine with 3 inches of lift. When my tires are wore out I'm probably going to for something close to a 31

I have 265/70-17 Cooper STT's with OME's. Had to do very minor front bumper trimming. They rub at full flex but not daily driving.

Running the 3" ome lift and I have the Cooper discoverer AT3 265/70R17s (31.6"). They fit with very minor trimming.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I want to fit as big a tire without doing damage. I don't mind trimming a little to make them fit though

265/75 is probably the biggest you will get.

downside to bigger tires: you lose power, speedo is off, fuel burn may change, and abs functionality may be affected.

255/70/17 ATII's here. I have trimmed the bumper some but they still turn when backing up over any sort of uneven road. Might have to just get rid of the fender liner because that's what it's mostly rubbing on in the front.

I have a 3" IRO with a 10mm OME spacer all around.

I run 265-75-16 Goodyear Wranglers on the stock Silverblades, no wheel spacers. The tires rub the rear shocks (Bilsteins) slightly when turning or whatever, but not enough to worry about.

I don't wheel the WJ - it's my DD and exploring rig - but the tires fit well and look great.

Good luck
Pete

I finally got some new tires today. I went with some 265/70/17 Falken Rocky Mountains. I trimmed a little off the front bumper and no problems. Turned out pretty good.

Looks good! Would look even better if those rims where black. IMO

I was thinking about that but the wife is dead set against it. I put black wheels on my truck and she hates it but it's mine!! Can't say that about the GC.
