biggest tire w/o scrub.

So I just bought an 03 tj x and am considering upgrading to an off road tire. My question is what's the largest tire I can put on with out it scrubbing rubing or being dangerous?

Using the app on my phone, the built in search engine does not work so well. Do you have a link to these previously answered forums?

FAQ - What size tires can I fit on my TJ?
Height

The tire height you can use on your TJ without rubbing is determined by lift height, bumpstop length, and other body modifications such as trimming, high-clearance fenders, etc.

The chart below is intended to be used as a guide only for TJs with stock, untrimmed body parts. Different tire brands and different suspension lift brands will typically vary in actual height. You will need longer bumpstops to prevent tire rub if using tires 31" or larger tires off-road.

Width

The tire width you can use on your TJ is determined by the backspacing of the wheel. Stock TJ wheels have backspacing ranging from 5"-5.5". A list of stock TJ wheel specifications including backspacing can be found HERE

The chart below is intended to be used as a guide only. Different tire brands will vary in actual width. You may have slight rubbing when turning full lock if you are running the MAXIMUM suggestion below.

31x10.50 is the tire height and width. your rims are probably something like 15x7 or 15x8 the tire will then read 31x10.50x15

Shipping is about a 120$ and the tires are 95$ apiece then 50 to mount and balance. You can't get 4 carcasses the same they are paired. So at about $640 bucks it's not that great of a deal.
