[quote:40f82c6817=" "]The original tire is 215/70/16, could be upgraded to 225/65/16 or 235/60/16, and keep the same overall height. Has anyone done this with the factory (steel or alloy) wheels?

I don't plan to buy new wheels when I replace my tires.[/quote:40f82c6817]
A 235/65/16 would be the ideal replacement, but there are few tires in that size. The only decently priced tire in that size at TireRack is the Bridgestone Dueler H/T tire. Unfortunately, the ratings on that tire are horrible, worse than the stock Wranglers. The other tires in that size are $200 a pop.

I am planning on the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051 in a 225/70/16 when I change tires. The user ratings are very good (particularly noise) and the price is right. They are about 3/8" wider and 1/2" taller than the stock tires which isn't bad.

Good luck,
