Maximum tire size on a stock truck

Sorry if this has been covered before but I could not find in by searching. What is the biggest size tire you can put on an 05 4x4 with no lift and not have it rub?

with stock suspension and nothing else

285/70/17
33/12.5/17

33/12.5/18
33/12.5/20

a 12.5" wide tire will fit...but I recommend a max of 12" wide to keep some distance between the tire sidewall and upper control arm.

I would like a leveling kit on mine too. How much did it run getting it done? 33" tires are big enough for me but I like the way a truck looks better when it has been leveled.

Sams Club has the Wrangler MT/R for $1025 installed right now for the 285/70/17 in Hawaii. I imagine it's a bit cheaper on the Mainland

35/12.5/17 with 2.5" leveling kit. same thing as with the 33" tires. 12.5" wide will fit, but a 12" wide tire would be a better choice

Do you have any rubbing with the 305s? All you did was a leveling kit in order to fit them?

with 305's, that is a 12" wide tire. Unless you are running something like a Baja Claw, you'll be fine.

32"...maybe a 33" if you are brave and willing to have some rubbage.

So you can run a 32" on a stock 2wd?

What about a 2wd with a leveling kit?

yes, a 32" will fit a stock 4x2

34"


the 2wd is 1" lower up front and 2" lower out back. so I suggest you get a 1" AAL or the OEM 4x4 block in addition to a leveling kit to clear some 34" tires
