Yj 4in lift, 31in tires or 33in tires?

Ok im trying to decide with going with 31in tires or 33in tires. I dont want my jeeep t lok like its almost scrubbing everytime it goes over a bump if i put the 33in tires. I am not sure how 31in tires would look. Can anyone post some picks of jeeps with ONLY 4in lift and 31in tires. im trying to get a idea of what mine will look like. My 4in lift is on the way and i want it to look great because i have fixed this baby up as much as i have and i want it to keep looking good. Thank you for any inforamation and pics.

4" Rough Counrty and 31s. I feel that it looks great and allows a little more flex before rubbing.

33's are a good fit. you can always do a 1" body lift if you are worried, but you won't have to.

When I bought my jeep it came with a 2.5" lift and 31" tires.
You shouldnt have an issue with 33s

Dont forget to consider the offset of the rims. Makes a big difference iin keeping your tires from rubbing against the leaf springs when making sharp turns.

that is the lug spacing. you will want 5x4.5 but im not sure what the proper backspacing is for 33s, i want to say 4 inches, but im not %100 sure on that.

Is that the actual back spacing on the tire? And how much is need you think for my lift? I'm just really confused right now.

backspacing is something to do with the wheel you have, not the tire. the amount of back spacing you need is determined by how wide, and how tall the tire you want is. it all may sound a little complicated, but it is surprisingly simple once you get the hang of it.

im not 100% but i think 4.5-4 inches of backspacing will be good for 33s, but let some other people chime in before you go out and buy wheels.
