are 10.5 tires to wide????

im back and forth on what wheel and tire combo i want too go with over here i daily drive my jeep and i dont want to sacrifice too much comfort for a good look but i was told i could go with up to a 31 inch tire and 10.5 wheel on without changing anything such as the lift and or spacers ! i def like the look of the 10.5 wheel but not so sure about the the 31 inch tire if anybody has pics of there setups that would be awsome

Some wheels may rub slightly, but if you have that problem, you can cure it by adding a washer underneath your steering stops...you'll lose a lil of your turn radius, but you shouldn't ever be making that tight of turns anyway.

Doesn't matter. As mentioned before 31x10.5's fit all of them. Also as mentioned, due to variations in mfgs tire sizes, some may rub the front at full lock, it's easily adjusted with washers or just not turning as far....

Look at my Jeep profile. my jeep is a stock height 2001. It has the canyon wheels, and 31x10.5 BFG AT's

just a FYI - the wheel isn't 10.5'' wide, its generally 8'' wide . The tire is 10.5'' wide in theory, as it seems these numbers are more estimates than measurements.

I rubbed on 31 x 10.5 MT tires. The tires were mounted on my stock Gambler wheels. The OEM Gambler wheel's backspacing is 5.25" and I rubbed only during full turn locks on my lower control arm. 2 washers on each steering stop, totally eliminated the rubbing .

My 2002 Wrangler Sport had 31 x 10.5 BFG AT tires. Just added a washer or two to the steering stops and NO rubbing.

Steering stop photos attached for those who don't know where the steering stops are located.

I'm running a 4" lift, you don't need 4" if you don't wheel but I routinely stuff the tires up into the fenders

When you get the bigger tires it's gonna rub I had 31 I believe and when I'd turn it's scrap against something underneath. I took washers and went under n added them I think it's on the write up that was posted I got rid of 31 and got 33 in two weeks trade back to discount tire and left the set up underneath no problem

Haha I guess I'll need a 4" lift to then, why'd you go for the 33x10.5 over usual 33x12.5? I'm planning on the narrower 10.5" myself once the school years over, college is a killer on the bank account

Hey Frank, I've seen those tires alot in my area. Not sure who makes them buts its a sub company from some bigger company. The tire guy by me ( a little crazy but knows his tires ) sells them. When I had my YJ I bought Courser tires from him. Same company as Cooper and same exact tire but just cheaper. I saved about $50 a tire.

I just put 31 x 10.5 duratras also and I have no rubbing issues. I went test them this weekend and had no issues at all with rubbing on a stock suspension.

These are my 31x10.50-15, brand is Sport King A/T, and I have no problems with rubbing or anything on a stock lift. I've done some crazy stuff with them to and they handled like a champ, never been stuck and I've always made it up rocks and everything, as long as I held my line and didn't fall into the big ruts left by other jeeps or rock crawlers with big ass tires causing me to high center on my skid them I'll go threw it just fine! Here's some pics..
