I have a stock 98 wrangler and just replaced my 30x9.5x15 with goodyear dura tracs size 31's. I've heard it rub bad twice since I put the 31's on. Do I need a lift or can I get by with just wheel spacers?
i have offset (larger backspace in other terms) wheels and dont have any rub. so the spacers should fix it but i hear many say spacers are bad. not sure why.
I run 31" cooper discoverer ATRs

I have wheel spacers on my 98. I found that Rough Country had them for $60 a pair. When you install them, follow the instructions, and really clean the surfaces good with a wire brush. Then you have to re-torque them after like 300 miles. I re-torque every oil change.
Don't pay somebody to do it...it seriously takes about 30 seconds per side...remove steering stop bolt, add washers, re-install steering stop bolt, repeat on other side. I used 2 washers per side. May have gotten away with only 1 per side but I wanted to do it right the first time so I didn't have to crawl under it twice...that concrete was cold and wet. lol
