Need help with Tire size.

So I have a 2009 Wrangler Unlimited X and I would like to put bigger tires on. My question is what size can I put on without lifting it. I would like to lift it but just don't have the money right know. In the mean time I would like it to look a bit more like a Jeep. I have the stock 16 inch wheels so I was thinking a 265/75r16? Will those fit without lifting.

should be able to go with 33" tires without problems. get some wheel spacers and thatll give it a much better look while keeping rubbing down. also you can trim the fenders. when i did i was able to fit 35s on stock suspension with no issues. granted there will be rubbing offroad when stuffing, so keep that to a minimum till you lift. wheel spacers are a cheap and easy mod to give it a more aggressive look. there are many options just look around.

Wow that was fast thanks guys. I think I will go with the 32" so I won't have to use any spacers. I'm trying to spend as little as possible, but still want to have a more aggresive look. I'm assuming I will still have to purchase AEV ProCal Module to recalibrate everything after the change. I'm pretty sure I have the 3.73 gear so I shouldn't lose much power? I say pretty sure because when I log onto Jeep.com it is listed under the optional equipment, for my vehicle. Any suggestions on which tires I should get, I'm leaning towards the BFG all terrain, but they are a bit pricey.

Can't call it on the tires. It's up to you for price, performance, looks etc. You wont go wrong with BFG. Take a look in the tires and wheels for sale forum. You might be able to get a set of Tires and wheels from someone for less than you'd pay for just tires. I see pull offs that are brand new from Rubicons all the time there. Those are usually 31" BFG MT's...Good luck!

shouldn't have to use the procal depending on your current tire size. spacers are cheap and i love them, gives a great look with the stock wheels. as for tires i am a huge fan of the falken wildpeak for an AT. but can't go wrong with bfg
