ZJ max tire size

i know this isn't a SWB question, but i still think i'll get better and quicker results here. a buddy of mine drives a ZJ and i'm trying to convince him to get larger tires. i'm not sure what year it is but i'll guess mid 90's. what is the max size tire he can put on without a lift?

sorry if this questions been asked before

Re: ZJ max tire size

30X9.5's will fit with minimal rubbing if the front sway bar is disconnected. If it's left connected, you could maybe stuff 31's, but it would definitely rub, and may hit the rear of the fenders.

With lift:

2" BB - 31's, minimal rubbing
3.5" - 31's - no rubbing, 32's, rubbing
4.5" - 31's - lots o' flex, 32's maybe a little rubbing and will probably need to trim rear of fenders.
5.5" - 31's, 32's, 33's rubbing
6-6.5" - 33's with a little work

Largest yet - 36's on a crazy leaf spring conversion and 38's on a $50k Icelandic model.

'82 CJ-7/360/727/D300/M.O.R.E. shackles and lots of ideas!
