No expert, but from what Ive read, 31" s and you may need some sort of spacer if your backspacing on the rims is not right. Go check in the tire selection section. Lots of good info.

some one on here was running 32s with aftermarket rims on a stock tj. you can run 32s, you just wont be able to do a lot of hardcore off roading or anything. but if you are just sticking to the street, then you should be ok.

Keep your gearing in mind too... if you have 3:07's you probably aren't gonna like 32's.... 31's are bad enough!

I did indeed run 32's without much issue. The only rubbing i got was when i hit a decent bump or a big dip when turning. You can not, however, do any sort of real flexing without rubbing the fenders.

It wasn't so bad having it like that, but I only did it for a little bit until I got the lift on. It is MUCH better now

Excellent info. thanks. 31s may be the ticket for now until I lift it.
