New tires - largest that will fit on a stock JK?

I just purchased a 2017 Jeep Rubicon. I would prefer not to lift it at this point. What’s the largest tire I could put on existing without rubbing?

Hi and welcome to ROF! I'm a TJ/LJ guy and don't know about JK tire size but stand by for the JK guys.

Hello, welcome.
The problem with larger tires if using stock wheels is that they run rub on the sway bar when of road, Do you plan on wheels or spacers?

With spacers or different wheels and flat fenders you can put 35" on with the stock suspension. I did that. Without changing the fenders you can squeeze 33s on it, but might get some rubbing if you're fully loaded and hit large bumps.

I was definitely planning on buy new wheels. I just wanted to stay with the stock suspension. So I guess the question is then purchasing a coordinating wheel with a 33 tire?

I did 37s BFGs on my 11 JKU, so what ever size that was. Then AEV wheels and some serious fender mods, well basically no fender guts, just the outers in place.

It is a little more complicated than what you think. What width do tho want? Most people like a 12.5 tire which will stick out past your fender. Are you okay with any rub?
Wrangler forum has a big stickies on this you should check out.

I put the BFG KO2 34/1050/17 on mine with aftermarket wheels. Stock suspension. Works great. Looks great.

BE HAPPY. AND GO TO CHURCH!
