31s on stock tj

I need to know if I can certainly fit 31s on a stock 8 year old tj it's my 2004 and I have all stock suspension parts. Will sagging be an issue? I want 31x 10.5 gy duratracs is there anything else to worry about ?

I run 31" Goodyear MT/Rs on 16" wheels from a Grand Cherokee. I had a stock suspension when I put them on. They rubbed the frame a little bit at a full turn. Make sure your wheel has enough backspace to avoid rubbing.

I have the stock canyon wheels with 30's and no lift. I wanted to go with 31's what type of backspacing would I need so they would not Rub? I wanted a cheaper rim, can someone show me an example of a rim and tire that would fit?

Good to know. Well from what I've heard I could add a few washers behind the wheel and that would help to prevent rubbing at a full turn

Hmm well I think backspacing is more of an issue with larger tires like 33s but I could be wrong. I heard adding washers help to prevent rubbing. A good wheel is like a 15x8 or 15x10 procomp alloy which are not really expensive. And the duratracs will fit as most people have said

yea check out the 7069 series i personally like those, simple and not expensive. The cheapest would be to go with steel wheels but i would try to avoid steel and stick with alloy.

If you do any wheeling you might want to avoid using spacers or washers. There are probably guys/gals on here that use them, but that's a lot of stress on a pretty small component. I believe 4" of backspace clears everything on a turn. I'm not sure about 3.5".

My next set of wheels (coming soon) will have 4" of backspace. I will be running 33" tires on a 15 x 10 wheel.
