    Hello Everyone,
    I have a 2019 Rubicon which I love (my wife hates when I say that but what can I do) and after waxing it and cleaning the wheels I feel like there is a lot of space for potentially a larger tire. I understand the Rubicon needs space in the wheel well for articulation when going off road but my question to everyone is; Can I put on a a larger sized tire on my 2019 rubicon without any modifications. Also I obviously don't want any rubbing?

    Isn't it designed for 35" without any modifications?

    This is what I've heard but have not been able to confirm anywhere.

    With the higher fenders on the rubicon you can go up to a 35" w/no lift.

    Someone will chime in soon. Lots of Jeepers with bigger tires around here:giggle:. So, what are you looking at? Any certain wheel/tire combo?

    You can clear 37s with minimal rub at max articulation with sway bar disconnected, zero rub on the street. I have a set of Spidertrax wheel spacers, that's about it. I can't confirm if they would clear without the spacers.

    I also have the Spidertrax 1.75" spacers on 37s....NO WAY would mine clear without rubbing. Couldn't even turn the tires on the street without them hitting the front bumper as well as scrubbing the OUTSIDE of the front fenders.

    Looked cool though:

    I ran several thousand miles with a set of bf goodrich ko2 35's (315/70-17 C rated) on stock wheels and no spacers, and had zero rubbing issues.

    I'm not even sure the OEM 33s would clear with that combination of spacer & wheel offset.

    I ran 35’s on stock suspension (oem wheels) and 1.5” wheels spacers and the 3 times I took it off-road after adding the 35’s I had no rubbing, but I never got it to full articulation with the sway bar disconnected.

    One thing I think needs to be considered is bumper, steel or plastic, and if you have a winch. The mopar steel bumper and a winch dropped mine 3/4” over a torn down front end.
