OME 2.5 lift tire size help

Getting an OME lift and cant decide between tire sizes. Its my daily driver so I was leaning more towards 31" for gas reasons, but Im somewhat concerned that it will look too small. Should I go to 32"? I was going to do the dura tracs in 31" and I know they dont make them in 32" so I would have to find another tire to stick on there. Any thoughts or pictures would be great.

I'm ordering an OME 2.5 soon as well, already have a 1.25 BL, and planning on 33's when the current rubber wears out.

Same setup that I have now but I have 32's on right now. Once they wear I am also going with 33's but I will have xennon flares to give a little more room.

Mine is not an OME, but it is a 2-1/2" lift with 31s. I don't think that the 31s look too small. What do you think?

I dont know if OMe has changed there 2.5 lift,but I installed one on my jeep like 7 years ago,and 31,s looked right.Even when new, my lift netted closer to 2" than 2.5 .My truck need a 1.250 JKS body lift in addition to run 33,s.

I dig your jeep, but I'd rather shoot hoops at your neighbor's.

I've got the OME in the garage and have been waiting for months until I can afford some 32's. I wouldn't be happy w/ 31's.

I am also going to be getting the OME lift. I have 32's bfg AT in my garage waiting for it and feel they will be perfect. I found the lift for $669 with free shipping on
Northridge4x4 Jeep Parts: TJ, Rubicon & Unlimited Lift Kits On the site it doesn't have the spings for the lj which I have, but if you call them, they can hook you up. For an extra $30, you can get the OME steering stabilizer if you look in the package deals area.

You know, I think it got down to that one night a few weeks ago here. Guess I better stick around, thanks for the invite though.

OME HD with 3/4" spacers in front, 1.25 BL and 33x10.5s. (2 year old pic) I think you would need the BL to fit 33s correctly.
