Default max tire size on stock ZJ

Hi everyone,

I want to put slighter bigger tires on my 1998 ZJ which currently have 225/70/16 tyres. Can anyone tell me what the biggest tyre size is that I can fit without any rubbing issues? i can get a set of 225/75/16 at a good price but if I can go bigger without issues I will.

Cheers

RockingDad

My buddy had 31's on stock. his stock rims caused a little rubbage on the front bumper easily fixed with minor trimming of the plastic. decent back spacing and you should be OK. unless you take off the sway bar then youll be up in your fender quick. SAW ZAW. and your good. put 33's on lol

30"x9.5" will fit best.

235/75/16 will work, 245/75/16 might as well.

I think this belongs in the newb section. There's zero tech here!
