any way to add stock tire sizes ?

the 2nd & 3rd wheels, after the SE
I think the auto wreckers refer to them as 5 spoke dimpled steel.
or 5 spoke flat steel, without the dimple.
Crap... I'm not even 100% certain what all the stock tires sizes were for different models of the TJ. Do you know?

No but I’ve always been curious.
I know Jeeps Brochures always listed them… I only have an ’06 Brochure tho… from when I almost bought one new.

So ‘06 SE & Sport…. P225/75R15 Goodyear Wrangler GS-A OWL All Terrain
Rubicon & Rubicon Unlimited…. LT 245/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler GS-A OWL All Terrain

The 30” Tire & Wheel Group… same tire in a 30x9.50x15 size included a D44 rear axle with 3.73 ratios was Preferred on the Sport and Standard on the Sport Unlimited.

Only the base Sport came with the 3.07 ratio and only with the base P225/75R15 tire.

I'm sure there were a variety of tires sizes depending on the year, trim package and potentially the country as well. So it would be hard to narrow down anything concrete. I know that my 05 Rubicon came with 245/75R16 tires from the factory and I believe that applies to all TJ Rubicon models (at least for the United States).

Speaking of specs...I would like to know the differences between the two TJs. Example being the 97 and the 06. I know the seats are lower but how much lower? Anyone have this information?

I don't know for sure, but I want to say the 02-06 have sears that are 1 to 1.5" lower.
