XJ Question: Stock wheel/Compatibility

826 Views 14 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Beezil
This might have fit a little better on the newb forum but here goes:

I'm looking to add a few inches to my '89 Cherokee so I can fit a little more rubber under her. Is there a way to find out what tires my stock wheels are compatible with? I'd like to avoid spending money on new wheels for various reasons (including the financial ones) unless there's an argument for buying bigger/different wheels.

The tires that are on her right now are P205x45R15. I've seen some photos of some of the rides that have been posted on this and other forums and I'm thinking maybe 30s on the 15s if that's doable.

All wisdom and advice is appreciated.

If you're getting a 3" lift, get some 31" tires on the stock rims, works great. You'll just have to modify the steering stops so you don't rub the LCA's (not that it's a big deal to rub them even if you do). I've run this combo for over 3 years now and have spent the time doing all the mods necessary to go higher, stronger, and run a bigger tire. My 31's are about dead now and it's time for 33's.
