Default Xj tires size

I have a buddy that wants to run 245/75/15 under his 1999 Xj... From the Factory it came with 235/75/15!


So I suggested .75 coil spacer for the front and 1 shackle in the rear... Would he need longer brake lines?

He tows a 2004 Toyhauler pop-up, he want to match the tires size on the trailer so he has more tire rotation options

Would this be worth it or should he run a small lift ie Skyjacker 3" full spring lift?

Spacer lift should be fine i would go more with a 2" spacer u will need new shocks but the brake lines will be fine

Grab a pair of S-10 leaves and build up the packs instead of shackles. He'll thank you later. The control and firm ride I got with mine made all the difference in the world. 5 years and no sag no matter what load I put in it. Flexes pretty good too.

They'll fit with no lift. Those are basically 30's. I have new 30 BFG AT's on stock rims on my 97 XJ and the only rubbing is full left or right, and only slightly. No bottom out issues at all.
