New Tire advise (what width fits a TJ)

Hi,

So I am driving a 2000 TJ with stock tires and want to go Bigger, and most importantly wider. I have a 2" BB and will probably go to 31" Tires. What is an appropriate width to get for these tires? Will I need to get new wheels if I want to go wider? Does anyone have a link to a good site for wheels and tires at a good price?

You'll pretty much just get 10.5 on a 31. Depending on the wheels you have, you could go with 32x11.5 and only have to adjust your steering stops (may have to do that anyway with 31's). You'll also probably need to adjust your bumpstops depending on what kind of driving you will be doing. Keep in mind your state laws may make you keep them covered with flares.

if you have the canyon wheels, a 31x10.50 is good, its covered by the flare, and doesnt rub, but you can go a little bigger if you want. im running 33's with a 2.25. Check walmart for tires, good prices, and if you tip the guy doing it, hell only charge you $20 to mount and balance all 5. (spare) at least i got lucky

if walmart doesnt have what you want, go to tirerack.com. good prices and shipping right to your door. shipping prices are rough though.

32x11.50's will rub the rear spring perch without wheel spacers or wheels with less backspacing.You can get black steel wheels for around $40 each.RC sells wheel spacers for about $120 for all 4.

I'm running 32x11.5 without spacers and on stock Canyons, no rub in the rear. Just had to adjust my steering stops two washers on each side.

you can go up to 12.50's on the canyon wheels, thats what i have and its working good. the RC spacers are good and give your jeep a pretty mean stance. i have them on and no problems so far, put about 1,000 miles on them.
