tire size help???

Will a 285/75/16 fit on a stock 99 wj? I have 245/75/16 on there now. The bigger tires are general grabbers at2. I'm not sure if they will rub on the rear strut or how they will b when turning in the front. I only have two now so if I need to buy some narrower ones for the front I can.

If you want to completely chop your bumpers and fenders, maybe. 285/75R16 is about a 33" tire. You are lucky you aren't rubbing with the 245/75R16 (30.5" tire) on a stock WJ.

They'll fit in a stock 99 WJ, but not on a stock WJ.

Even with 4-5" lift that size will probably need moderate trimming.
