Searching Tire Sizes??

I keep being told by everyone that I should put 31" tires on my 2000 TJ. Apparently, I can keep my 15"stock rims and they will fit on. When I am on the Internet searching for tires, what should I type in when I am prompted on a Tire Store Website? For example 225/55/16. Something like that.

One thing of note your rims are the 15x7 grizzly's.. With 31's on them you will likely get noticable rub.. Only the 15x8 stock rims work with 31's without rub. However you should be OK with 30x9.5/15 on your rims.

Or you could throw a set of wheel spacers on and run 31s if you wanted
