Hey everyone. I'm on the fence about putting taller tires on the jeep. These are 265/75/16's. I know for sure that I wanna go with some ko2's. Just not sure about going a little taller.

Love the Jeep. Why do you want to go taller? Also, what trans do you have and what gears are in the axles?

Just had it re-geared to 4.10 and it has the 3 speed auto. Runs way better now. I'd like to get rid of those ugly wheels too 😂

I was even thinking maybe going with 255/85/16. Little bit skinnier bit taller. Anyone running those that might have some pics? I've seen a few but more never hurts.

If you are debating switching to 15” wheels I would do it when you buy your tires. More tire choices. I have 33x10.5R15 KO2s and love them. My TJ is my DD for now and I really like the 10.5 width

Dick Cepek Extreme country 33x10.5r15. Under $200 each. I love mine. Great in mud, snow and quiet enough for the pavement
I'm going with those when my Mickey Thompson MTZ P3's wear out. I had those in 33x12.50s on my XJ. Got them for $150 each with a $200 instant rebate.
