Go to a few reputable tire companies and ask what they will do. I suspect up two sizes max. The OE on standard Rubicons equates to about 32s. If you go beyond 34/35 it might look funny and not be very functional because of the rim width.

The Rubicon 10A actually went up one size from stock and were more like 33s... OE and they looked good in stock form.

Re: Tire size

Your biggest problem will be with width. I believe with a stock rim you can go 10.5 inches wide. Super swamped used to make a 35 that narrow. If there is a certain tire you want check their website for a tire chart. Look for your rim width and it will tell you how tall you can go for that manufacturer.

Re: Tire size

Are you going to off road it?

If you are articulation comes into play also.

Was told on my jkr I could do 285/70 with little to no rubbing, but it would hit my fenders off road.

I decided to wait until it is lifted,etc.

Re: Tire size

I've seen people using the stock rims to run 35's but you would need a spacer like spidertraxs wheel spacers for the rims to make up the back spacing. If not you will rub while trying to turn. I asked about them before and was steered away because changes the fulcrum point and adds more strain to the wheel bearings causing them to fail prematurely.

If you don't want to run wheel spacers, then try 255/80r/17, if you have the stock 17's. That's about a true 33" tire but under the 11" width and shouldn't rub off roading (aka pizza cutter). Just another option.

Re: Tire size

I'm looking at putting Michelin LTX A/T 2 tires on my new '15 Sahara when it arrives at my dealership. They spec out at 32.1" diameter, 11" sec width. The tires size is LT275/65R18.

Will the 11" sec width be an issue with the stock Sahara rims?

Re: Tire size

Can I run 35s on a non lifted Wrangler without installing flat flares?

Re: Tire size

From what I've read I don't think so. 33's yeah but not 35's
