Is there a 33" tire setup that looks like 35's? What the heck are you asking? Have you found a tape measure that magically makes 33 inches stretch to 35 inches?

I mean, sure you can get 33's that measure big and 35's that measure small, but then they really arn't true 33's or 35's are they?

buy 33s and air up to 268psi...you might get the extra 2 inches you are looking for. you might be confused and looking for tire width instead of height.

Isnít that the truth. I got 35ís and said I would never want 37ís but now Iím thinking they look a bit small for my Unlimited. The 3.8 and front axle will keep from going that route though.

You know that the tire companies seem to have found a tape measure that magically makes a 35" tire actually measure 34"

You have to love all TJ-ers dumba$$ comments on here.....makes me want to smash some people heads togethero
I think what op is asking for is probably a wheel and tire combo that looks bigger even though it not. Like a 15 inch rim with 33s thus it has a lot of meat in the way of tire to wheel size ratio, thus it looks bigger

Iím still baffled with that. Some of them arenít even close to what they advertise yet some are. There needs to be congressional hearings on this matter.

No idea what that says or means... Ahh, looked at the sarcastic threads and noticed the TJ's. Dumb is dumb, leave the TJ out of it.

Perfect! Get some 12" rims and 33's, they will look HUGE!
As Muttytruckster says, get a 15" rim, what more could you do?
