tire clearance on 99 TJ

hello all, i have a 99 RSD TJ ,planning on getting a 3 in suspension lift this spring, but need to get new tires now, Can i clear 31's without rubbing? i hate to buy a new set of 30s that are gonna look goofy once i put the lift on

Should be fine..if it were me I'd probably find a cheapie used pair until I got the lift on, then spend real money on the 33s

It should be ok but you can adjust your steering stops if it does.

I put a one inch back spacer on mine , 98 31/10.5 no lift, it did rub on hard turns, now just bearly rubbs on back stock flares, soon to be replaced with flatties.
