Tires - how big can we go with stock TJ suspension

We may need to replace the stock tires on our 04 TJ soon. How big can we go before we worry about fender clearance and lack of power, speedo error, etc. I prefer to avoid expense and reliability issues of regearing the diffs, etc. Would be extra cool if I didn't have to pop for new wheels, too -

Thanks for your helpful tips! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I fit 36's with 2" spacers though i didn't have any front fenders and had to move the battery. 31's is a safe bet and they might rub but it won't be anything major and a little rubbing isn't a big deal.

You can fit 33X9.50 MallTerrains with no lift. It looks like a bloated rollerskate ..but there are no other issues then adjusting the turning stops. Instead of the width hitting with the stock backspacing ..it's the larger radius of the tire.
