The guy I purchased my 91 Trooper from threw in an extra set of wheels/tires that he said was from "another year Trooper" (he didn't know what year exactly). They're nice Goodyear Wrangler GS-As, one looks like it's never been driven on! The tire chart lists:

1st gen Troopers (and Trooper II's)
no lift- 33x10.50x15

Confirming that this means that 30 x 9.50 R15's will be no problem with no lift? i.e: this lists the MAX size that fit without a lift? Thanks in advance!

First, this chart is awesome and saved me a major headache. Second, how much of a difference will it make if I was using a 15" wheel on a 1st gen with no lift, as opposed to a 16" wheel? I wouldn't think it would be an issue really. The wheel back spacing is the same.

Just to clarify, I just ordered a set of 31x10.5R15. They should fit my 93 Rodeo 4x4 without a lift, right?

Disregard my previous posts. 31x10.5R15 fit a 93 Rodeo 4x4 perfectly. No rubbing, no cutting or bending required. Looks great too.

I can verify that yokohama geolander ats 265/70r16's will fit a stock 2001 rodeo sport. I had to remove the front mud flaps though. It barely rubs on the passenger side. I might be able to take a hammer to it but I figured it would just be easier to remove the flaps for a few months until the tire wore down a little.

Ok, Just checking to see if I'm getting this correct.... if 32-11.5 R16 (265/75R16) w/no lift- , then the skinnier 235/85 r16 (31.7x9.3/16) should fit as well. (1st Gen Rodeo)

Re: I think we need a chart

Postby wranglah » Wed Dec 12, 2012 5:38 pm

so, just to clarify, if i look at the chart in regards to maximum tire size, it says for the second generation Amigos:

3 inch lift-305/70R 16 (33x12.50r15)(trimming required)

so, my question is, I am planning on installing a independent4x.com 3" lift kit in the next few weeks and will be purchasing new tires as well so if i use the above info than a 305/70/16 will require trimming with a 3" lift, but I plan on using a 265/75/16 tire......so will i need to do any trimming for that size as it is smaller than the 305?

1998 Rodeo, 3.2, 5 speed, 4x4 won't clear 31's without removing mudflaps and factory running boards (if you have them like I do.) Not sure if this has been brought up or not, but I tried fitting them on because I got a whole brand new set for next to nothing...but no go. :( Ended up sticking with stock tire size: 235/75R15 Cooper Discoverer AT/3...love them.

You guys think I'd be ok with a 285/75-16 on a 4.5" BS / 0 offset wheel with no body lift? It's a '96 Rodeo and I'd make shackles and crank the bars to suit.

ok, i have read this entire post and it is filled with great info... but i have a question. i was given a set of 265/75/16 wrangler rt/s about 50ish% tread left. as of now i have no lift(2000 rodeo 4wd), but will be doing either trooper springs or ome913 and torsion crank in the near future. i have no plans of taking these tires off road til i get the lift but im in a situation that i have to put them on now. bad ball joints did the current tires in but i did get over 50k out of them. i know i have to do some trimming, thats no big deal, but will i be able to run these without the lift and with trimming for the time being? all highway/city/interstate til its lifted. some help asap is greatly appreciated as i have to mount these either tomorrow or saturday.......
thanks!!!

Anyone know if a 2nd gen Rodeo will clear 235/85/16 (32x9.5) tires with just a 1.5" coil spacer in back, and matching Tbar crank? I really want to run this set up as I don't want a lot of lift, but want to run those tires....

I have recently procured a full set (5) of 16" snowflakes. What is the maximum tire size I can use without rub at stock height?

Thanks in advance. :)

Play with this before jumping to a size. Dont go by year, make model. Look below it and enter the tire size you have right now.

The other link will tell you how much you can expect the speedo to be off and alot of other good info. See this thread for pics of what your asking.

Well, that was fun. If we all followed the 3% rule, we'd be riding around on stock tires. Oh well, looks like 265/75/16's are in order. Just wish I knew how big I could go without rubbing.

Once you do find the tire size use this link as it will tell you a bit more info plus ride height increase.

Remember if you rub on the street then your tire may become permanently stuck when it flexes offroad ;)

After a little more research, I learned that going with 245/75/16 or 70/16 will optimize my mileage and road performance. My rig is mainly a work truck. I don't do much off-roading. The 4WD is used for the snow and occasional steep, washed out, dirt road. When I grow up, I'll build one for the trails.

I've got 31x10.5x15's on it right now. Not the tire for optimum mileage and/or performance. I've got a certificate for 4 new tires from the Yokohama plant here in Salem that I won at a golf tournament. Don't want to waste that opportunity. Guess I'll be ordering the 245/75/16 Geolanders on Monday.

Haven't seen that thread yet. Going to check it out now.

Still no info for the Pickup, I see...

Is it safe to guesstimate the 4x4 90's P'up based on 1st gen Rodeo numbers? Reading the old build thread by Little Gray, it would seem 32" on snowflakes with no lift fit with no problems... Sort of wondering if 1" (33's) would cause problems...
