Ive heard a lot of different opinions and I was just wondering what all you thought. Usually the best opinions come from those that have experienced it. What is too much lift for a jeep? Or how about, what is too much tire? Ive heard people say that they wouldnt go more than 33's on a jeep with standard width axles. Ive heard others say that they 35's are deffinitely the limit. And to counter all that Ive seen jeeps with as big as 44's. In my opinion, 35's are about the biggest I would want to go. I kind of like the idea of 34's. So what is every one's experience with this subject? Do you think it makes a big difference on what kind of wheeling you do? Just wondered what you all thought.
i dunno about the limit of jeeps, I think there would be a point where you would need some full size axles to feel safe. but on a toyota with straight axle conversion, and enough lift for 36'' tires felt good. though as everyone with jeep experience knows, thats comparing pears to watermelons. there is no limit really. just what you want i guess
it depends on what jeep you have. a cj5 with stock axles and 35s is alittle tippy. ask me... mine was like that along time ago. with a cj7 and wide tracks or a wrangeler i think 35's/36's is about right. it is hard to say because there are so many different suspentions designs and wheel back spacing setups that can change the variables. i do have a buddy who has a set of ford 9" axles (the front being the 60 hybrid) and he had them cut to cj wide track width and he runs 38x14.50 sx's. he has trouble with the tires hitting the springs and frame when turning though.

I like the pic. What do you guys think about 34 9.50's. Are they a good tire size. I was kind of concerned about the width. I do most of my wheeling in the mud and with some holes they would just dig me in too deep. What do you think?
