what tire size for 15" x 10" wide rim

just got a set of flat black 15x 10" rims for my wrangler 95' and my main question is what size tire width should i go with? and i want to go no bigger then 31"'s with the tire size. i have a 1.5" leaf spring and shock upgrade. i mainly stay on the road if that helps.

If you want a tire that small you'll want to be looking for a set of 8" wide wheels. Those are too wide for a 31". Generally speaking the only time 10" wheels are used on a Jeep is when you've got a 33x12.50 and larger, and when they are mostly (90%+) on the road.

sweet! thx guys! i was able to contact the distributor before they shipped them and he had 15x 8" rims in the same style so i think im good. the lift kit is half way underway ill have it done monday along w. my rims being delivered the same day according to ups. now since ive got a 1.5" lift kit goin on(95' se). what would be the most promising looking tire for that kind of set up? i def. want a little bit bigger to compensate for the lift and want to go a little wider so it doesnt look to narrow and awkward. i have goodrich all-terrains on now which i look for a style.
