What tires and rims should I look at?

I have a 2" Coil Spacer lift on my 1999 TJ. Looking at a 1" body lift. I have 2005 Jeep 15 inch rims with almost brand new rubber. Definately doesn't look bad at all. Maybe with the 1" body lift it will look bad.

What rims and tires should I run?

I just got 5 Cragar Soft 8's (Summit Racing $40 each) and have Big O AT's on them, the new styly 31x10.5 and they are awesome.

X2...just got 5 Cragar Soft 8's, 4 enclosed Cragar center caps, and 20 new lug nuts shipped to my door for $287. Having them mounted Saturday morning.
What kind of Big O AT'S are you referring to? I'm confused.

I want bigger. I have the stock size. I think a bit bigger would look and do better for off road. Not that I do rock crawling or anything.

With a 2 inch coil spacer lift I think you can run 31s without rubbing. What is the stock size? 29inch?

More of a back spaceing issue with 31s than the lift. the tire will fit with no lift, but the wheel needs the proper BS to not rub.. I want to say 3.75 or there about, though that is what I ran with a 12.50 wide tire on a 8" rim.
