Will 31 x 10.5 mud tires fit a stock 2003 Wrangler?

Hi everyone. I have a 2003 stock Wrangler and I was just wondering if I can move up to 31 x 10.5 from 30 x 9.5 tires without having any problems. (like rubbing, interference, etc) Thanks!

Thanks! Glad I found this place,seems like a really cool site! So I won't have any problems (even off road) moving up to 31 x 10.5 15 mudders from 30 x 9.5 15 ATs? My jeep is not lifted.

Yea, 31's will be fine. MAYBE at FULL flex you'll get some rub. And this site is awesome

Don't mean to sound dumb, but what do you mean by "full flex" Is that like bottoming out after being off the ground or maybe rocking side to side? I'm asking these questions because I need some new tires and can get a used set of 4 BFG Mud Terrains with less than 800 miles on them for $450. They look really new. Is that a fair price?

thats an excellent price for the tires.

By "full flex" he means when your axle is articulated. This happens when you disconnect your anti sway bars and run over some sort of obstacle so that your axle will move into your wheel well on one side and go downwards on the other. this is what you call flex. What he said about rubbing is that your tires may rub on your wheel wells when you flex your Jeep to the max. That shouldn't be a problem though because i doubt you'll be going that crazy with a stock jeep :P

Thanks TJ! It's good to know that the tires won't rub when turning hard or coming down hard. And no, I don't get really crazy off road, just trail riding and a little mud here and there. I will go buy the tires tomorrow. Thanks again!
