Tire Size
« on: April 15, 2015, 11:06:40 AM »
Can anyone tell me what the tallest tire size is that will fit comfortably under my 3A with stock suspension, D30 front axle, and 1" body lift?  I was thinking 30" or 31" but looking for feedback from someone who already has tried it.
Thanks!

I'll have to measure the ones on Ted. They are 7.50x 16s which is like a 31 I think. They fit fine on that all stock jeep.

I run BFG KM2 31x10:50's on '2A,  no lift,  D30 in front,  they only rub in extreme twisty's.   

For years I ran a set of 32x11.50,  but they rubbed a lot in off-road situations.

I am planning on a set or 235/85/R16 IROK NDs on a set of Jeep 16X6 steel wheels. The will be about 31" when mounted and looking at my current tires I expect they will be about right.
