tire size question

I am currently running 33's and I am in need of some new ones. I found a set of 31's on craiglist practically brandnew for 450.00. is there going to be a huge size difference that is noticable.

It's pretty noticable, but that's not to say it will look bad. How much lift do you have? If the 33's fit well, there will be noticable gap over the 31's, but if it's 4" or less of lift, some people are okay with it. I will say that when I downsized the tires on my truck slightly, I felt a little disappointed in the look after running the larger ones.
