Because I am too cheap to pay for an S package when all I want is A/C, I am planning to buy a base "B" package Wrangler with simply adding A/C, Sirius and 3.73s (would add a limited slip but for '13 I don't see where you can get a B package with one).
I know stock sized tires are 225/75/16. I know I can put a 245/75/16 on the stock steel wheels, as I had a friend that did that to his. Can I go bigger on the stock wheels? I know a 32" tire will fit, but I am also concerned about how wide I can go utilizing the steel 16s. Ideally, a 265/75/16 will fit, but I am wondering about a 285/75/16 on a 7.5" wide wheel. I see that works out to about a 32.8" tire, so it sounds like some trimming needs to be done.
Someday I will have the cash to get new wheels, but for now I'm lucky to afford the damn Jeep
I assume 265/75/16 is as big as I can go, but I wanted to verify 285s are no good and I failed at searching for the answer. Thanks!
