Hey man

depends on your flares and fenders too, You could prolly run 33s easily, but when you turn you could rub up against the fender/flares

Somewhere else on this message board theres a post with this guys homemade flares, and he was running big tires. I think they were made out of floor mats.

I think you would need an offset rim to take a larger size tire away from rubbing on the front leafs when you are at full steer lock. Even with the spacer you must realize that a larger tire will take itself closer to the leaf when you turn.

Hope this helps

On my YJ I run 33x12.50's...
I have a 1" body lift
1.25" shackle lift
and 2" add-a-leaf lift

that gives me 4.25" over stock...exactly!
I measured a buncha times!
My tires are too close to my fenders as is...I actually have the tires put on a day before we fired the 1" bodylift on there and I absolutley hated them...WAY too close!
If i were you I'd go with 32's
but if you go for 33's you might be urged to throw a little more lift into your jeep...that could be a good thing too (if you have the $$$)!

Hey, it's all personal preference...I like lots room....I got used to running 29x10.50's with 3.25" of lift...i liked it.

now i rub like crazy, my flares have been worn away by tire contact in the rear and the fronts are bubbled all weird from bending the actual metal flare underneath from tire contact.
TJ flares will make my set-up liveable.

I would suggest sticking with your 31's if they are still in okay condition...wait til you get more lift on there so you don't hafta buy another new set of tires then too!
If you really wanna upgrade I'd say go for 33x10.50's and do tj flares that week.

if you don't get a little more room under there you will completely total the flares if you ever take it offroad (and you'd better!
)

if you don't wanna add anything else but tires and just want to impress the ladies you'd be surprised how much bigger 32's look than 31's.

"Whoa, check that guy out...Those must be 32inch tires...I bet he has a big wiener!"

heh

I'm running the add a leaf lift with the lift shackles and a 2" bodylift with 60 40 offset rims. I found the ride a little too stiff. I'm running 31x10.5r15's and I can stuff 'em into the fenders. 33's will fit, but definitely not off road.

2" AAL's from www.rustysoffroad.com cost $59US a pair...
you will need new shocks too if you haven't already replaced them.
you will probably also run into driveline vibes like i did...lowering the t-case should solve them though.

good luck
if you want more info just ask

I wouldn't put anything larger than what you have on there until you get more lift. 32's would be fine for the road but would rub like crazy off road. I have a 3" body and 32x11.5 and mine rub off-road even with a sway bar attached!! I too like the look of plenty of room between the fender and tire.

Basicly my problem right now is that my shackles get me hung up on rocks all the time and i was hoping with bigger tires it might help the problem.

T & s suspension will do add a leaf installed
on your spring for $60.00 each.Mind you , you will have to take your springs off of your car before bring them over there.anyways it's like 2" of lift and it should help you cram 33" tire under there.
i had the same problem with shackle lift.
i decided to just take them off and run stock.

good day

I say go with either 32x10.50 or 32x11.50, the only thing, i would really worry about is the rub on the back of the wheel well.
