No lift. 31?

I have read post about 31s fitting. does this mean if the tire says 31-10.50 but is 29in tall it fits? Or a actual 31in tall tire will fit? Im asking cus i got 33s that are 31in tall.

31 " tall fits it'll scrub the control arms minorly but some squeeze 32's stock with much more rubbing

Had 31's that measured 31' on my old 97 wrangler. (stock sagging suspension)

They rubbed with the factory wheels but i later changed to aftermarket wheels with smaller backspacing and they never rubbed.

So I am trying to find some 31" for my tj. I have 215.75.16 on there right now. I can't seem to find 31" for a 16" rim. Anyone one know what size is equal to 31 x 10.5 x 16.

I have the Canyon Rims on my 2002, came from the factory and 31's fit fine on those and I have no rubbing issues at all. This is the second set of 31's. I am running Goodyear tires

Talked to a buddy that works aat a tire shop. And from what he said, seem like a of tires says 31 or 33 and only 29 or 31. But some 31s are realy 31in tall. same with 33s.

If you are worried about rubbing, get a set of 'budget boosts'. I got a set 'used' with a set of 33" x 12.5" MTR's and had the dealer install the budget boosts...didn't have to do anything else-nothing! And tried a lot to 'stuff' the tires and never succeeded-always came out of the problem on the trail easily.
All you do is jack up the jeep, compress the springs, and drop in the budget 'boost' cup.
Doesn't affect steering, alignment, anything...and you can get up to 2" lift easily. Shocks (stock) will still work fine.

My 31's only rub when I crank the wheel all the way over, and I mean ALL the way over.

I agree with almost everything you've stated, although the use of factory shocks can yeild issues. You'll wear them out quicker, they just aren't ment for that extra boost.

For around $100 you can solve that issue with better shocks and have a nicer ride as well.

I had 32-11.50 ands they rubbed on full turns. I now have 31-10.50's goodyear MT and no rubbing what so ever. Unfortunately it's trial and error since not all 31's measure the same way.
