Choosing the Right Tire Size for Your 2015 Jeep Wrangler


As any seasoned off-roader will tell you, knowing your vehicle is vital, especially when it comes to tires. For the 2015 Jeep Wrangler, tire size can mean the difference between conquering rough terrain and being stuck in the mud. Whether you’re traversing rocky landscapes or tackling muddy trails, the correct tire size ensures optimal performance and safety.

Stock Tires: The Factory Standard

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler comes with a couple of stock tire size options, depending on the model. The base version usually rolls out with P225/75R16 tires, while the larger Rubicon trims are often equipped with LT255/75R17 tires, providing a beefier look and more ground clearance. These sizes are a great balance of comfort and capability for everyday driving and moderate off-roading.

Upgrades: Going Bigger and Bolder

For those Wrangler enthusiasts seeking to upgrade, LT265/70R17 is a popular choice. This size provides an increase in size and traction without the need for extensive modifications to your Jeep. However, if you’re planning on fitting 33-inch, 35-inch, or larger tires, be prepared to consider additional changes such as lift kits, spacers, or even axle and gear ratio adjustments to accommodate the larger size while maintaining vehicle performance and handling.

Consult Before You Convert

It’s crucial to remember that altering your tire size can affect your speedometer accuracy, handling, and fuel economy. Before making any significant changes, consult with a tire professional or a Jeep specialist to ensure your dream tires match up with your 2015 Wrangler’s specifications and your off-road ambitions. With the right setup, your Wrangler will be ready to tackle any adventure head-on!

Happy trails, and remember, the right tire size is the foundation of any good off-road experience with your 2015 Jeep Wrangler!
