I guess we need to "Sticky" this, or "Wicki" it. It must be the most asked question in "Wheels & Tires"
It seems that every other newbie asks what size tires will fit his truck, and I thought we needed to have the information in a prominent place and someone decided to "sticky" this thread.

1st gen troopers are under powered 32 x 1150 is as big as i would go 8) neo
Wouldn't that inch extra width on 32s (power drain wise) be the same as running 33.10.50s? I am almost ready to assemble my engine & tires will be one of my first purchases I think. still in a toss up between 32/33 & 9.50/10.50/11.50. I know that all but maybe 33/11.50(do they even make these?) will fit a 1st Gen but what will the power be like? (sorry if too far off topic)

32x11.50's are alot heavier than 33x10.50's.

I've been running 32's for over a year and have taken it to the mountains a couple of times. It will get there and back, but it's not the fastest.

If your worried about power in a 1st gen Trooper you might want to consider another engine, or vehicle. :wink:

My 33 12.50's don't seem to be much better than the 35's I pulled off. Really not that bad with the new engine.

OT.I have T-18 4-speed with low first gear and it's great transmission with 36'' tyres.I have two engine choices for Jeep,amc 258 six-in-line or Finnish made Valmet 4.2 l diesel fourbanger,which finnish Jeep importer assembled them in seventies.It's originally tractor motor :D .It's really not so bad as sounds.

Ok I've been folowing this thread. I have a 90 stock Trooper. SO I can run 33x10.5 on rough terrian with no rubbing issues & no lift??? I have 31x105 now. Heck I don't even mind doing a little fender trimming either.

Cool, what about 33x12.50? I got a buddy that has a set for a good price right now that would trade with me on my 31s.

Just thought I'd mention, I've done well by my 31x10.50 tires on a set of aftermarket 15x8" steel wheels. Though they stick out of the fenders a bit, I have yet to rub anything and that's with (so far) stock ride height.
