2003 rubicon: 1 inch body lift and 2 inch coil spacer lift. tire size?

ok, my rubicon needs new tires bad. i got in a fender bender today . i was coming up to a light and it turned red and i put on the brakes but the brakes locked up and i rearended my buddy's toyota. my left front fender needs to be replaced now, and i need new tires because this would NOT have happened if my tires weren't bald.

anyways. my question is: what size tires can i run on the jeep? it has a 1 inch body lift and yesterday i ordered a 2 inch rubicon express coil spacer lift with shocks. can i fit 33's?

the guy at discount tires said no, i would have to get 32's. but i dunno, i think i would take your guy's word over his. and also, does anyone know where i can get a fender, preferably one thats already painted? its light khaki in color.

with your lift 285/75R16 will fit. thats about 33x10.5x16.

A buddies 03 Rubicon with stock wheels and 285/75R16 Goodyar Wrangler MTRs, he has a 3" lift and no bodylift:



Be sure what rim size you hve before you order the tires. My buddy has the European Rubicon model, perhaps thet US models came with other rims. But I don΄t think so.

I run the same size on mine w/ a 3.5 front and 2.5 rear lift w/ no body lift and no problems.
