I ran 33 x 12.5 x 15 tyres on 15 x 8 wheels with 4" backspacing for a few weeks before lifting my TJ. Anything more than the smallest of bumps or any flex could result in rubbing.

Typically you would need 3-4 inches of lift to run 33s on a TJ, and may need to add a washer or two to the steering stop bolts if there's any rubbing at full lock.

I ran 265/75R16 on a 2" SkyJacker lift kit with stock wheels and flares. Tyre tread was covered and the Jeep worked well off-road.
The tyres were fitted a few days before the lift and from what I remember it was driveable on the street. Didn't try it off-road with the 265 tyres without the lift.

The 235/75R16 is fine with no lift on stock wheels.

The transmission died on me a few months ago. Renewed the fluid and filters and all was well.

Soon afterward though it would drop out of overdrive while at speed. Only stopping, shutting down, waiting and re-starting would fix it but for a mile or so before it happened again.

Fault codes include transmission overheat but the temperature is 'only' 112C which doesn't seem high to me?

It sometimes doesn't change up smoothly but jerks. When decelerating it sometimes 'hangs' in O/D or 3rd gear then, when I apply throttle it changes down with a jerk. It's not great.

I'm guessing but 'IF' there's sludge or a blockage then getting it flushed might be a good idea. My friendly mechanic doesn't have the equipment for that so can only offer a fluid and filter change. I tried one local specialist who quoted me £6000 (yeah, right).

Any ideas or recommendations in Herts/Essex would be appreciated. For a company that knows what they're doing I'd even travel further.

one for the hive mind, I am looking at new tires, and TBH this is 70% looks 30% performance.

My problem is a lot of conflicting info, so a few questions

how big can I go without a lift?
are Puck lifts OK/safe?
how much effect does wheel offset have?
if I go for 285/75r16 (these are just under 33") what are the min mods needed?

Hi Clarky,

Are you getting an error like below?

An Error Has Occurred!
Call to undefined function mysql_result()

If so, it seems to be affecting everybody.

Also, if you remember your previous username let me know, and I will see if I can assign your previous posts to your current account.

Thanks. Sorry for the delay, I have updated my calendar. What's the cutoff date for Summer Walters? I'm on a big green laing trip during the week before. I would really like to get one day at Walters on Saturday before I have to head home.
