Dion is right, we need to know what type of Jeep. Wrangler, cherokee, liberty, etc. However, i'm guessing your asking about a TJ b/c the JKs come with larger tires than that already.

typically the largest size tire you can fit on a TJ (1997-2006) is a 31x10.5x15. some minor rubbing of the control arm might occur during full steering to the left of right. a simple washer under the steering stop can solve that problem though.

i have a TJ 2001 jeep wrangler. I just wanted to make sure before buying them. I don't want to go with 31s because there too much tire for me.

Like Steve said. On the TJ's anything up to 31x10.50's work fine.
Should not have any problem with 30's.

im looking at these two sets.

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Model=Wrangler Sport&autoModClar=


http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Model=Wrangler Sport&autoModClar=

im leaning more towards the all terrain tires only because there really isn't any place near by that is for off road. ive looked at the places like rausch creek and some in VA. but there too far for me to travel. I use my jeep mostly to get on base for work and that's pretty much it.

skip the KM2s if your not going to take the Jeep offroad, the ATs will do handle trails and the road just fine.

another tire to look into is the Goodyear Duratrac, even though i had a hard time with them offroad they were a great tire on road.

also Bridgestone Duler AT revo and revo II

just my .02

I've got 31's General Grabber at2 on my cherokee, put on end of last summer and am very impressed with them and would recommend to anyone looking for an AT. I've had the BFG AT, Pro Comp AT, and Generals and the Generals have been the best. Really never heard of them until PA jeep show last year and got talking with one of tire vendors selling all types of tires and he was recommending them. Sure enough he was right and they have been a great tire. The Generals and BFG are almost the exact same tire, same tread, etc, but I think the Generals were about $30 cheaper per tire and had better warranty. Been great on road, in rain, snow, and just fine for the occasional off road. Cheapest place I found online once you include shipping was tirebuyer.com.
