Original wheel size

Can anyone tell me what the original wheel and tire size was for the 1983 CJ7's? I have a bet with a friend who states that it was 31's and I say different.

There were a few options, but I believe all were metric and under 30".

I would almost bet my life that they came stock with 28" tires. Not 100% sure, but very close.

According to an AMC sales catalog, the sizes for CJ-7 tires are:
P215/75R15 Goodyear Wranglers
P235/75R15 Goodyear Wrangers with white letters, both on a 15 by 7 inch rim.
The 235's are much more common and stand in at about 28.3/4 tall.
I personally run 255/70R15 and 265/70R 15 on my Jeeps for a wider tire / same heigth, without affecting the gearing.
