Alright I'm getting tired of hunting through threads trying to figure out tire sizes and wheel sizes individually, is there any way we can compile a database of what fits without rubbing / trimming wheel well stuff?

I'm basically looking for "you can fit an overall diameter of 3x.y inches by 10" overall width with ____ offset. As long as your stuff falls within that box somehow, you're good."

For example - if you have 1" of space between your OEM tire and wheel well at its closest distance (3/4 lock or so), and you put on a wheel that's an inch wider with the same offset and same overall diameter, you still have 1/2" to spare. Similarly, put on a tire that's 1" bigger on your same width, and you should still have 1/2". Everyone with me so far here? Good.

Where it gets a bit trickier is when you can't find a wheel with the same OEM offset (likely, because of our crazy +56). So now a 1" wider wheel plus a +20 offset is going to push that pivot point out - and close the gap even with the same overall diameter.

So. I've seen conflicting answers on here too. Some people say 31" is the biggest tires you can put on without rubbing, while other people say "nuh uh, I've got 32"s and don't have any issues".

Here's what I'm looking for: Post up what you have and whether it rubbed and made you have to trim the wheel well liner or not in the following format, and I'll compile it into a chart for people to use.

I'm using https://tiresize.com/calculator/ to get dimensions, and Will They Fit for offset differences and dimensions.

Wheel size:
Wheel width:
Wheel offset:
Tire size:
Tire width:
Overall diameter / height:
Rubbing: Yes/No
Lift kit: Yes/No + how much

Example:
Wheel size: 20"
Wheel width: 8"
Wheel offset: +56
Tire size: 265/50r20
Tire width: 10.4"
Overall diameter / height: 30.5"
Rubbing: No
Lift kit: No

I'd like to put the following on, but don't know if it will rub:
Wheel size: 18"
Wheel width: 9"
Wheel offset: +20
Tire Size: 285/60r18
Tire width: 11.2"
Overall diameter/height: 31.5"
Rubbing: Unknown?
Lift kit: Yes, 2.5" Rocky Road Outfitters.

So here's what I ended up with:

Fuel Beast 18"x9", +0 offset with the shop giving it a +8 or so
BFG TA KO2 265/60 R18s

I still have plenty of room and could definitely go up to 285/60 R18 on the tires, and plan to do exactly that for my next set (probably next winter).

Looks great.
I am also looking into going down to an 18" wheel on my RT and going up to a 32" tire. 275/65r18 is the size im looking at now. Ive seen a few posts that say I wont have any rubbing but that is the absolute tallest tire I can install without a lift. I have a 2014 RT and dont plan on installing the Rocky Road lift yet. And I dont plan on taking mine offroad much...well at least not yet. Its still like new. I want more sidewall for a softer ride and I want the tires to fill the wheel wells alot more and have a more aggressive offroad look. The rear stock tire size looks like a minivan to me!
Can I do a 32" tire on an RT?

I would think you would have no problems what so ever with that setup..

If I can make the deal happen, I am working on getting 255/75/17 Hankook DynaPro AT/M on Wrangler Unlimited rims... from my research, the 17" rims do clear the calipers IF you have 330mm front rotors... and the tire size should fill the wheel well nicely

Well ll they fit... but the fronts have MINIMAL clearance between the calipers and wheels... couple millimeters.... but drove about 70 miles on them with no issues (just like my Sahara rims)

Will most likely by some hubcentric spacers just for peace of mind...

Before (stock size tires).. yes its dirty.. winter has started in IOWA










After....

You thinking of getting a lift? If you were closer I'd trade you springs/shocks give you an 1" lift (floaty though). Also I see you selling the in floor storage tub, but not seeing a mod thread yet....Your mods are always tasteful and well done so keep sharing! I left some info/opinions on the spacers in your other thread. And for my records, are you experiencing any running at full lock turns? You notice the vehicle sitting that extra inch taller from 2" diameter increase?

Thanks for the kind words!

Not getting a lift though..these will most likely be swapped over to my AWD Crew come spring (I have my winter tire setup on the Crew now)... but yes, I do notice a higher ride with the taller tires.. smoother ride too!
And no rubbing at lockout... checked and can easily gettmy fingers between


No mods for the rear hatch... I acquired a new storage bin when Discount Tire trashed mine trying to get to the spare after I specifically told them "dont toich the spare" knowing they would break something... the broke storage bin tabs and my passive entry receiver! But the tabs aren't bad so just leaving it in

And thanks for the info!

Not a bad day to put on the taller, slightly narrower, more aggressive tires!

Did you ever go with this? I'm in the market for new tires for my '13 on 18" OE rims. I kind of wanted to see if I could get something slightly wider for the look.
