Ok, My wife gave me the ok to put some new skins on her 02 and left it totally up to me as far as choosing anything I want. She did however make it clear, "No Lifting It"!!!!!! They hate climbing into my Ram and I refuse to put steps on it.

With that being said I'm looking to go over-sized without wheel rubs and I will be running the factory rims. We have roughly 6 months of winter here with average snow fall totals of over 200" and safety is a big factor. She managed to get nearly 60,000 out of the stock Wranglers. Any suggestions or pictures of stock set-ups with slightly over-sized tires?

My thoughts were
275-70-16
265-75-16
275-75-16

Not sure if they will fit and I'm open for suggestions on brands

Thanks in advance
Cuz

265-70-16's were largest stock size. I have seen some claim they fit 32x11.5 without any lift. However most that fit these tires will do a 2" TS lift. This lift is so sublte that many cannot tell it is lifted, but it will give you 1.75" real lift on the undercarraige. Can you possibly get away with that?
Thats what came on ours stock, the 265-70-16's.. I really like the looks of these tires from both the back and front becasue they have a nice sidewall bubble and off-road look to them. I would really like to just go one size wider and one size taller but I dont want a tire that has the squared look. In my opinion, that how the BF all Terrains look, square. I have heard good things about Cooper but I'm not sure what one size taller and wider is.. I need some help in this area. To answer your question Canyon, she wont go for a lift unless its from the tires alone.

Your right Dave, the skinnier and flatter sidewall would track better. I'm real picky when it comes to looks of things, it took me 6 months just to find tires for my Ram.

Thanks CanyonD

Here's what I come up with
265-70 = 30.6x10.4 (Stock)
275-70 = 31.2x10.8
265-75 = 31.6x10.4
275-75 = 32.2x10.8

Ideal would be something around 31.5x11
I'm going to look into those Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos and see what sizes they have.

Thanks again everyone
Cuz
