Wheel and Tire Sizing Question

Hey all- Im new so stick with me here;

I have a 2013 jeep wrangler 2D w/ 17" stock wheels and tires, I want to upgrade my tire size... Whats the biggest tire (the one that would add the most height, width does not matter to me) I can have without creating problems? Any suggestions or help is appreciated

You'll have to better define what "without creating problems" means. If you mean without lifting or trimming your flares, you can go up to 33s.

285/70/17 is a fairly popular size to run on stock wheels and they measure to approx. 33".

You may need wheel spacers to prevent rubbing against the air dam at full turn. I've ripped the air dam off both our JK and JKU; mainly because I think it's fugly.

Rubicon size tires will give you zero problems.

You're only going to gain an inch or so from tires. Probably not even that much.

That's correct. Wheels/tires alone might be Ok if you're only looking to make it look good, but you're not gaining enough functionality to matter.

Why so determined not to lift? The smaller lifts -- leveling kits, budget boosts and 2.5-inch coil lifts don't make any radical changes to the vehicle, yet will let you fit up to a 35-inch tire.
