31's or 32's?

alright guys after my bb im going to be putting some bfg muds on. Should i go with 31's or 32's? I have an SE with the 15x7 inch rims so i believe i would need new wheels to put 32's on. Is it worth it to get new wheels to put 32's on or do you think 31's will look and perform fine? I dont really have the money for new wheels right now so it'll set me back some time if i decide to go with 32's

If you are doing the 2" bb go for the 32's. I have the 2"bb, 1.25" body and am running the 33x12.5's, but have after market wheels. Your wheels will work fine with the wider tires. If you experiance any rubbing, adjust the steering stops.

I have the 2" bb and I'm running 31s... When discoed in the front I usually get into my fenders / flares pretty good. It has caused a bit of damage at full flex to tires and fenders / flares. I didn't extend the bump stops though.

same here...no damage to the flares but some to the sheet metal on the inside of the fenders nothing to worry about though. I actually have the bumpstop extentions though still doesn't help just keeps eating my stops up. 31X11.50 15

go with 32's they are much ebtter and if you fins you're hitting your fenders a lot then you can buy a 1.25 in BL for around $100

Before i lifted my jeep i had 31 10.5s and they ran fine with no rubbing. i didnt take them crawlin just the occasional mud hole. but i would say go with 31s or skip 32s and get 33s. if your buying new tires and wheels might as well go all the way in my opinion.

I have to agree. Go for 33's. I have 32 x 11.50s and they only measure 30.5. My stock Goodyear measured 30. What a joke. I really need 33's.

with a BB the 32 will fit. all BBs come with2" bumpstop extnsions and with that the tires will not rub. if you do a lift with longr springs (not a BB with spring spacers) where no bumpstop axtensions are required the 32s will rub with 2" lift.

here you can ses how 32x11.5x15 look with 2" BB:

I shuv my 30s into my fenders w/ my 6" of lift.. 4" rc and 2" bl and no bump stops.

I'm always running discoed in the front even on the street.

as rim with i'd imagine its the tire width that counts, not the height.

The hill isnt big enough...

I ran 32 11.50's on stock 15x8 rims and they rubbed on the inside. Had to get a set of Sofrt 8's with 3.75 BS.
