Any 235/75/15 Tires

I am going to need new tires soon, and since I am in college and connot afford lifts kits, tires, wheels, and whatever else I might need. I also have 3.07 gearing, and I have hear that 31s and 3.07 is really sluggish. I would like to see what different 235/75/15 tires look like on a TJ.

I put 235/75R/15s on mine. I wanted a more aggressive tread and an all terrain tire. My jeep is stock so i didn't want to go to big for when i want to run through a trail in the woods, or go down a ditch and drive across a field. People say we can fit 31s on, but from pics that i see the tire comes real close to the fenders. I didn't want that chance of causing damage to something.

Is it a manual or auto. I ran 31's with 3.07 wasn't the greatest but I did it for a year. Just keep the rpm's up, mine is the 6-speed.

Mine is a 6 speed and I do not plan on having enough money anytime soon to regear.

Does it feel really sluggish, or is it not that bad

Just my opinion, but I would go to a 31", otherwise just keep with the cheap and buy the same size tire with better brand/traction. I DO understand how it is with the 3.07 gearing!! It sucks, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm going to be getting 33's in the next few weeks. I can't regear very soon, but look to do so in a year or so. I just don't see the use in going from 225 to 235, unless the tire you want only comes in 235... otherwise I would save that money and just stay with 225 because they look the same..

225 and 235s do not look the same. 235s are about .6 inches taller and about 2 inches wider foot touching the surface. You can see the difference going from 225s to 235s. Many tires do not come in a 225, if you want a more aggressive tread pattern, 235s are your best option then. As for the wrangler silent armor, 235s were the size i could get to fit my jeep. These are the best tires i have ever owned for snow and ice traction. My axles are 3.73s though and i have no problem at all.

I'm sorry, I just can't see that much difference other than the weight of the hard top versus the soft top on the rear... I'll shut up now...

edit: I didn't know that about certain tires not coming in the 225 size though, so that makes sense. I have kept my Jeep stock for the past 2 years and just now are using the money I've saved up on the Jeep.

If you have 3.73 gears I would go with 31's then. It will look alot better plus there is a very nice selection of tires.
Here is my jeep when it had 31's

30/9.50/15

yes I know this is a YJ but it has bfg's 30x9.50/15 on it at stock height

I believe this is the largest size tire Jeep recomends on stock suspension for a wrangler

plus it gives you a bit of lift as well with no rubbing at full flex

my buddy picked up a set of 4 hankooks (sp?) for less than $200 new

but if you can afford the Silent Armor tires then by all means get those
they are VERY heavy tires though and might defeat yer purpose and create the sluggishment (<-- new word I just made up) you are trying to avoid
I run them in 31's on my YJ (and absolutely love them) but only after a lift and more offset rims
I also ran them on the grand check my profile for pics of the tread and the aggressive look

I'm not worried about rubbing. I just want to keep my jeep somewhat peppy with my 3.07 gearing. I am looking at getting some 235s that have some pretty aggressive tread. Does anyone know a good tire in the 235/75/15 size?

Thanks for your guys pictures and input.

I would not bother getting aggressive tread on 235's. You will most likely bottom out or high center before you can get anywhere that would actually require an aggressive tread pattern.

Guess you people don't like to read what i actually said. I'll repeat it. The FOOT of the SILENT ARMOR TIRE Touching the ground is about, Not exactly, but about 2" wider then the FOOT of the GS_A Making a wider Tread pattern. I am not talking the overall width of the tire including the sidewall. Drive down to the Goodyear store and meassure yourself. I'm not gona prove it to you. I have better things to do.

I use that size in a winter studded tire through the winter months. Looks funny with the lift though!
