I am considering a Jeep Wrangler X.
I have been unable to get a straight answer from anybody as of yet.
I want to put 30" tires/wheels on the X. Do I need to lift it?
What size will require lift? Can I go 31"?

Get Levis instead.

Yes. I wear 30-31's. They fit very well on...

Oh....never mind.

I need 36's - they fit fine under there- cept i like levis- not the "bullet proof" stiff, blue wranglers

30's will fit...sort of.

How wide?

Stock rims?

Watch the off-set on after market rims and if you stay at, or under 10" wide on an 8" (7.5" maybe I think for stock) wheel, you should be good to go.

www.michiganjeepers.com Site is down right now. Should be up by Tuesday.

no, 33, yes, in that order.

The above apply to a standard wrangler, not necessarily an 'x'.



Avoid the headache...buy a CJ7, coil-spring it all the way around, swap in a T18, a pair of dana 60's (or portal axles!), rebuild that 304.....oh, sorry, I was daydreaming again.....

i had 30 x 9.5s on my '92 wrangler with no lift and no problems

Yes, I have 31s on my stock rims & have done no lifting at all & it rides just fine.

I run 30x9.5 on my Wrangler Sport, zero problems. With the TJ line (1997+), you'll be fine. A YJ would rub though. You can go up to 31" on the TJs.
