2004 wj with a 4.0 and 247. I just installed 2" IRO springs with new isolators and bilstein 5100 shocks from kolak. Currently I'm running the stock 245/70/16 tires and wheels. Looking for tires to put on a set of JK rubicon rims that I scored for cheap in mint condition.
My question...yes, what the largest tire I can move up to without trimming? From what I see, tires that will equal the circumference of my current tires(245/70/16), would be a 245/65/17. Correct me if I'm wrong on these tire conversions. What size would be best? This wj is 95% street as it's my wife's, yet we use it to haul all my gear when going on long wheeling trips in my TJ. 245/75/17? /255/65/17? 235/75/17?? Also, how bad is the speedometer going to be? I noticed there's not gear to swap out, and is sensored. Not too concerned about being off a mph or 2, more worried about transmission issues arising with a drastic change in size.
Lift install went smoothly. All control arms replaced with stock new replacements, rides great even without getting an alignment for a few days yet.
Here's a pic. What tire would you go with?
Thanks for the advice.
