3.25" RC lift with 31" tires?

I am debating between a 2.5" lift and the 3.25" lift with my almost brand new 31" tires. Anyone care to share there opinions or advice?

I honestly haven't looked into the 3.25. I'm going with the 2.5" myself. I have pretty new 31's and I don't want to go with bigger tires anyway. I've seen alot of pics with the 31's and the 2.5" lift and I think it looks bad. IMHO. Let us know what you decide.

I have the 2.5 with 32s and it works fine. Disconnected I will sometimes put the front tires into the flares. I have 3/4 inch pucks that I will put in this winter now that I am not wheeling as much. Looking back now I wish they had the 3.25 when I ordered as it would have saved me time. Extra room for the tires is always a good thing

It's hard to decide because 2.5" and 3.25" doesn't seem like it's much difference when thinking about it, but on a car you can tell. I just don't want it to look like I have small tires. You no...

My RC 3.25 was delivered last week and I am going to run 31's. I have the 2.5L so I don't think I'll be running the 33's until I re-gear. The reason I chose the 3.25 is because I want to run 33's once I have 4.88 gears. Lift wise, I'll be ready and won't have to add any height to run the larger tires. I don't care if the 31's look too small because it won't matter out on the trail. As long as my rig performs then I am happy.
