2011 Wrangler Unlimited Tire Question

What is the biggest size tire that I can put on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited without a lift kit? The tires will be going on Gear Alloy Black Jack wheels size 18X9. My current tires are P255-70-18. Thanks for the help.

Depends on what you are willing to do to be able to run a certain size of tire. 33s fit stock, depending on the backspacing of those Black Jack wheels. With flat fenders you can even run 35s, once again, depending on the backspacing of your wheels.

The blackjack wheels say they have 10 offset. Not sure exactly what that means. Thanks for the replies.

Go to this site and see what backspacing is vs offset. Offset is from the centerline of the rim to the mounting face of the wheel and backspacing is from the inside rim to the mounting face of the wheel...two different measurements.

Those are cool rims. I just bought a new 2011 wrangler sahara. I assume I can get those rims and use the new stock tires on them?
