31's will look funny with 4 inches of lift, but an 8 in wide rim will work nicely

Maybe 33x10.50x15 tires? I have no problems with driveability with my 33x12.50x15s though...

those don't exist the narrowest tire you can get in a bigger size is a 32 9.5 15 TSL (not road friendly at all) i say 33 10.5s on a 15x8 or 15x7 wheel is the way to go. or if you want a little smaller 32x11.5 on 15x7 of 15x8s looks good 2. 31s are too small on that much lift
