Lift installed

Just got done installing my rc 2.5 lift kit on my 98 tj.

Next thing is tires.
Was thinking 32in Bfg a/t

I do about 80% road and 20% offroad.
What do you guys think I should go with.
31's or 32's??

Not to mention why 32's? Prices going to be better on 33's.

Haha I would post up pics but by the time I got done it was pitch black outside! Will get some pics up soon.

But I don't want 33's because this is my dd and don't want to be running them with 3.73 gearing.

Not sure how the 31 ground clearance is for off roading so I figured 32 would be better and prob. The largest size I would go ( for now)

Btw I'm running 235/75/15 right now.

If you want 32's, why not get 33's? 33's are usually 32.1-32.7 anyway.

Only got a few miles in with them, but I like them so far. Still debating how much psi to put in. It was at 50psi in the back and 40 psi in the front.
I put 45 psi in all of them.
Been reading on here that guys put in like 30 psi. Will have to do the chalk test.

I used to run my 31" BFG all terrains at 30psi. I never rotated them for like 20000 miles and they still have over 50% tread.

BB's are cheap and easily installed.
No other major modifications are needed.
I do recommend better shocks.
Skyjacker makes a decent BB and their shocks actually are not that bad.

I did the replacement shocks and springs.
Pretty simple to install. No other mods needed. I'm pretty happy with mine. Exept the only regret is getting 31's and not 33's. But still happy!!!
