2.5" lift with 32's

Anyone have this set up. Right now I have just regular 31" street tires and am definitly upgrading to a m/t but don't know if I should stay with 31s out go with 32s. Any suggestions or pictures would be greatly appreciated!

I'm set up similarly. Its a 2 inch with pro comp MT 32's and I love it for the mild off roading and daily driving I do.

I've got 2.5" with 31s theres plenty of clearance so I'd imagine you would have plenty of clearance.

Maybe this will help. Just adjust your bumpstops and you'll be fine. My 31's are about 3/4's worn out and I'm bumping to 32's.

All Terrain, it had Mud Terrains when I bought it but at 70 mph you could barely hear the radio. Every now & then I wish I still had M/Ts but only in deep mud & that's not very often.

I've posted this before, but it's still relevent.

I used to run 32 x 11.5's muddies with a 2" OME lift on my '97 TJ*
Tires were mounted on stock 15x8 rims with 5.5" backspacing.

Had some rubbing on the front control arms and anti-sway bar at full lock which was easily fixed with a couple of washers on the steering stops.

Things were really tight in the rear but never had any rubbing issues. Perhaps I'm not hardcore enough or just lucky. Could also be due to variances between tire manufacturers but although I never had a problem, it was always on my mind and would have been more comfortable with a bit more room back there. ie different BS rims or spacers.

Checked the speedo with a GPS and saw no difference, but again, I guess results will vary with different brands of tires, with them all being slightly different.

Also, the stock flares JUST covered the tires with the stock rims (5.5" BS).

Had to remove the rubber bumps on the tailgate to mount the spare and raise the third brake light.
Actually the spare was mounted on a stock 15x7 rim (5.5" BS).

I was running stock diff ratios (3.07). The 3 speed auto is a bit more forgiving than other transmissions with that combination.

One other thing to consider is 32" tires are far less common, so that could be a problem if you need one in a hurry. I sometimes used to carry 2 spares (one in the tub) if I was heading too far from civilisation.

* Now added a 1"BL and 33's

That looks sick! That is exactly what I am trying to get my jeep to look like. What rims and tires do you have and what type of backspacing, if you don't mind me asking?
