well guys i have had my tj for almost 2 years and i think its about time i made it a "real jeep". so i bought a set of general tire grabbers that are 31x10.50 r15 and im putting them on my stock jeep. i have read a bunch of posts from here and everyone seems to think they will fit with no rub. they should be here in a few days but if they don't fit i would like some opinions on getting them to fit. im also looking into getting a new set of bumpers for the front and back if anyone would like to link me to some good stuff and give me there opinion i would be grateful. and on a side note jeep owners for the most part are really cool people and everyone i have talked to on this forum have been really nice and helpful. also i love my jeep and im only 19 but i wouldn't buy anything else now that i have had a jeep for awhile.
p.s once i get my tires on i will put up some pics

With that setup, your likely scenario for rubbing will be dependent on your wheels and backspacing. Will you be running aftermarket wheels or the OEM ones? I kept my OEM wheels when I changed my tires from 30's to 31's, and I did get rubbing during full turn locks on my front lower control arms.
To resolve, I just adjusted my steering stops.
I did not experience any vertical articulation issues with the 31's, even while disconnected.

its an 03 sport utility. i am going to get a lift in the spring i think and everything is stock i don't know what my set up is. and depending on what it rubs on if it rubs im willing to cut things out.
right on thanks man thats an easy fix. im no mechanic but im good with tools and fixing things so im all for the diy. if there was no wrangler forum or the nice people on here i would be shelling out a ton of cash i go here for every issue first and its great thanks guys
well my tires came in yesterday and i got them put on they look great and they perform really well. when i turn my wheel all the way to one side the back of the tire does come in contact with lower control arm. its not bad but i will have to put a washer on the stear stop. and i guess its the tread but when im gearing down coming to a full stop they almost sound like there rubbing but there is no way they could. other than that no rubbing or any other noise. but the general tire grabbers are a great tire in my books they paw through the snow pretty good. they is no mud here gotta wait till spring.
