What Fits a Jeep Wrangler?

September 29, 2020

You may be looking at tires for your off-road rig, and wondering what the heck is going to fit? What is the most optimal size? We are here to let you know today!

 

 

Reading Tire Size

 

You may have seen the numbers on the side of a tire and wondered what they meant. The first step to finding the correct size tire is to know how to read the tire size. There are two ways that they may have the size shown on the tire. The first is metric and otherwise, it will be in inches. It is more commonly shown in metric measurement. If it is a metric measurement, the first number is in millimeters and it is a representation of the tires with from sidewall to sidewall. The next number will be the percentage, so if the second number is 75, that means that the sidewall height is 75% of the first number.  The final number will be the size of the wheel which will always be in inches. If it is read in inches then the first number will be the diameter or height of the tire, the second number will be the width of the tire, both in inches and the last number will again be the size of the wheel in inches.

Pros and Cons of Tire Size

 

If you go too far and get a tire that is really big this can be helpful in many ways but it can also be harmful as well. We all know that bigger tires are better for offroading. This comes with many consequences though, you will have to modify or upgrade or fix many parts of the rig to accommodate these new tires. For example the suspension, drivetrain and ball joints, etc. This could be incredibly costly and time-consuming. Big tires will also change how your speedometer reads, makes your gas mileage worse, and will put a strain on the rig because they are bigger and heavier. If you go too big they can rub on the rig as well causing a ton of resistance. Big tires may look cool and be beneficial for off-roading but if you tend to drive your off-road rig daily then you may want to be careful with how big you go.

To find the perfect fitment for your rig, we recommend heading to our gallery. In the gallery, we have tons of rigs and when you find a look that you like and want for your rig all that you need to do is click on the photo and it will tell you the exact setup that they have. So this way you will be able to see that they have 37's on their rig but they needed a 6-inch lift in order to get them to fit properly. This way you will know exactly what will fit and you have already seen how it looks.

What is the Right Size for me?

 

Our rule of thumb is for someone who daily drives their off-road rig, to get 33-inch tires. If you off-road quite a bit, then go up to the 35-inch tire. Anything over 35 inches will probably result in the need to fix, modify, or upgrade many things on your rig.
