J/k 16 inch wheels

I didnt realize how much of a problem a 1 inch difference can make in finding tires. When I get my jeep i want to put bigger tires on it. If you search 15 inch theres probably 100 different tires between 30 and 35 starting as cheap as 100 bucks. For 16 inch I found One tire between the sizes of 30-35 and its 250 bucks!!!!

Go to JK section tires Maxxis, look at a cooper tire dealer, toyo tires, tones of quality off brand tires usually half the price. Or go to Sam's Cub, they can order them for you.

I have the 16" Moab rims, and there are quite a few options. Not sure where you're looking. The real difference is, you can't usually find them in 32x11.5 or 33x12.5, you have to go with the metric sizing. Try here for a quick conversion reference...http://www.oly4x4.com/metrictireconv.htm

I put 265 75 16 Bridgestone Dueller AT's on my MOAB's and they fit fine. They are about a 31.5 overall diameter and 10.5 wide. I paid about $136 each at a local SAMS Club for them.

If it not hard at all to find off-road tires for 16 and 17" wheels. You must not be looking in the right spot.

No one really knows. Everyone who has been sent in to measure has been lost in an endless pool of oil gushng from the JK.

I've heard 33" too, but width would depend on the wheel you use. 10.5" is probably correct with the stock off-set.

well teraflex says with there 2.25"BB you can fit 35's, and from the look of the picture you can fit them with a decent amount of room.so i am guessing that 33's will fit stock.
heres a pic of the new lift kits for those of you who havent seen them




that picture gets me excited

33's was my guess also, prolly have to wait and see though. I would LOVE to put a lift on it and put some 35-37 inchers on their, but that will have to wait. I dont want to void the warranty, rather wait the 3 years and get all the kinks outta the jeep first. Unless Im am wrong and a lift doesnt void it, but I figure it does.

Putting a lift would void the warranty right?

Aftermarket "additions" only void a warranty IF that addition directly causes the failure of the warrantied component.
It could be argued that a lift could be the cause of a steering or u-joint?cv joint failure but not an engine, stereo, etc. failure.
