Default Re: Tire Size

Largest? Are you talking height, width? How are you planning on driving it? You can run 31" tall tires but the width is hard. Maybe 9.5" wide. That's what a lot of the baja guys run. As far as fender rubbing, if you go a lot bigger you'll always get rubbing.

Super will be a daily driver. i just like the look of a taller and wider tire on the rear but don't want any rubbing.

Jegs and probably others sell a doohickey that lets you measure for tire size and backspacing. You can probably make one yourself. But don't forget to cycle the suspension as you do it
