stock wheel backspacing yes, you will rub when you take tight turns, assuming you are mounting 31/10.5/r15 on stock rims, it wont rub your flares unless your springs are really in a negative arch

^^Right. I rub the springs in a tight turn on stock wheels.

^Which is why I put 1" spacers on my front axle. Spaces the wheels enough to not rub on stock rims.

Depends on usage and conditions. For the most part, all you will have is some minor spring rub which can be fixed with spacers or by adjusting the stops, or just get used to not turning quite all the way. But I did hit a curb once before I installed the lift that sent the tire into the fender, ripping the sheetmetal. It's the only contact I had in a year at stock height but I have heard of a couple people who have had fender flare rub with 31's.

Lol, with stock suspension including sway bars, I had no articulation. I haven't had 31's, stock height and sway bar disco's, but I think you could experience some rub with that combo.

Yep, you will rub on the trail w/ 31s, no track bars & discos.

My flares were all 'self-clearanced' & wouldhave been gone if I didn't take it easy thru the rough stuff.

You can do a lot w/ aftermarket 'pocket' falres & some trimming tho ~
