Does anyone know if I can safely use a 16" wheel on my jeep if it is now equipped with 15" wheels? I would like to run a 32 x 9.50 or 32 x 10.50 tire but there aren't many choices in the 15" category. Thanks so much!!

You can. 16" wheels were an option on my 2000 Sahara, so they'll fit any TJ.

yup - and the 16" wheels can even help clearance some brake setups in some instances.
chris (didn't know 16" wheels were an option on TJ's before '03)

I found that you have better tire options with the 15" wheels.

I agree there are a ton of options in 15" wheels. However, I'd like to run an approximate 32x10.50 tire as this is my daily driver with a total weekly commute of 800 miles and it's only a 4 cylinder. So I was trying to stay with a moderate size but still gain some ground clearance and some torque. I'm not crazy about the super wide tires and how they stick out past the jeep. I like that slender look. And in the 15" range, there are only one or two options for the 32-10.50 size. Thanks for your response. I guess my choice is being based on as much personal preference as anything.
