    That's wrong you can do 35's. Maybe larger. Depending what your willing to cut. But ya who knows if he even has a jk. Sounds like a tj.

    Flat fenders and 35's I've stood next to it. So I'm pretty sure it's doable.

    The tire size question comes up a lot, I mean all the time, so you're best to do a search on the interweb or even on this site. Technically, you can fit whatever size tire you want provided you are willing to cut/trim body panels.
    However, I would assume you don't want to go that route. Therfore, trust what JustJeeps told you, they are a reputable source, to say the least.

    This is what I've come up with after way to much time researching, lol. No lift with cooper Dis stat 295/70 on stock r17 rims with 1.5" spacers. (33x12) or save about $500 and go with Bf Goodrich mud/t km2. 255/80/r17. (33xcurent width). No mods needed With the idea to add spacers on later to improve the stance of the jk. Leaning more towards the Bf's. The mods I want to do for the jeep is more of a marathon then a sprint. Wife + kids = budget. Figure by the time I'm done I will need a new set of tires. Just still sitting on the fence. Thanks for the info

    Spend your money on a budget lift. Little 3 inch coil spacer, then tires, then fenders and bumpers

    Put your fenders of choice on or cut the stock ones then do the size tire you want. The reason JJ's says you need a lift is to prevent rubbing. Basically you will need an offset rim or spacers to prevent the larger tire rubbing the frame when you turn. That however puts the tire under the lip of the fender as opposed to inside it when you flex. With no lift that results in the tire hitting the fender and eventually ripping it off. Now, if you trim the fenders or do flat (or arched) fenders you don't have that same issue so no lift is required. Larger tires may also hit stock bumpers without a lift or trimming the bumper.

    If your not going to change flares then the norm rule of thumb for a JK would be:

    up to 33" tires and NO lift is needed (and cruise the mall with maybe some light wheelin)
    33's and a 2" lift (Go wheelin)
    35's and a 2" lift (Light wheelin)
    35's and a 4" lift (Go wheelin)
    37's and a 4" lift (Light Wheelin)

    I just put 33s on with no problem on stock rims . 35s would have been a problem with interfering on rear control arms.

    33s with 4.5" backspace. You could also use stock rims with a 1" spacer. Slight rub in reverse at full lock. Here's an interesting article for you: http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/su...jk-suspension/
