How big can I go?


First time posting here, I've been reading through the forums and there are so many helpful threads. Anyways for whatever reason I really like the look of the stock '04 rims on my TJ I just hate my tires. I was wondering what the largest size tire I could fit on them is.

The previous owner had BFG P225/75/15

I like the look and versatility of the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires, but they dont make an exact fit for my wheel size. I was reading that I could fit the LT235/75/15. This seems fairly obvious that it would work but is it possible to go larger without running into issues such as rubbing?

31"s (31x10.5x15) are generally the biggest you can go on a non-lifted TJ with stock flares, etc.

I have 31x10.50R15s on my stock '04 LJ wheels, no issue's with anything except four crappy Toyo No-terrains.
The Air Force FINALLY sent me back home to Florida. Ahhhh, Emerald Coast sugar sand.

I just swapped 31 10.50 15 BFG All terrain TA's to my 2000 Wrangler Sport that is stock, using the stock alloy wheels with advice from here that they would not rub. They rub when turning and not even at full steering wheel lock. FYI.
