    Please dont judge...

    Hey all, at the risk of sounding like a greenhorn ( which I am) I am curious to know what the maximum size tires I can put on a stock 2014 Wrangler unlimited would be. I eventually want to add a left kit etc but have an opportunity to get a good discount on a set of tires. I just need to know what I should limit the size to for now. I only plan to lift it about 2" when the time comes. Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated.

    It really depends on a couple things. The offset of the wheel or using wheel spacers and whether or not you will be trimming your fenders or running other type of at fenders.

    without any lift i would think 33's if you cut fenders and get wheel spacers you can put 35's

    I wasn't thinking of trimming my fenders. I could go the route of replacing them with something more accommodating. Mainly I was thinking of bigger tires with my Jeep as is for now. Thanks for getting back to me so fast.

    If you didn't want to cut your fenders you could look at flats like the MCE flat fenders and fit 35's but you may rub on the air dam when turning, so you may need to trim that. I would say 33's would be the biggest without changes and I am not sure about spacers as I have never ran them.

    It sounds like 33s is what you would want. If so, you can run on road and off road fine without a lift. Dont plan on being able to flex and compare to guys who are lifted but 33s will get you were you would wanna go off road. You do want to go with a a new rim, I wouldnt trust the stock rims with any thing larger than stock tires with spacers. A great setup that many people go with is 33s and a 2" or leveling kit. No other mods would be needed. Good luck

    you can run 33's at stock height without any other mods. you can also run 35's at stock height with trimmed flat factory fenders or aftermarket flat fenders with the proper bump stops.

    WhenI picked up Canvas in February of 2013 he had 33's on a stock lift with aftermarket rims. As Coz stated with the right bump stops you should be fine. I believe StrizztChris was running 35's on a stock Rubicon suspension before he switched to coilovers.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
