I'm currently running el cheapo 30"s on my '99 4 banger stick. It's my daily driver, which means I'm 90% on road. I DO want, in order of importance, durability/tread life, wet traction, off-road capability, won't TOTALLY sap my limited 4 banger power, and reasonable value.
Basically, I'm down to either 32" OR 31" BFGs (the A/Ts), or the 31" Firestone Destination A/Ts.
i have a 4 banger on 31´s and drives very good and has good power and mpg im getting 20 mpg on highway and 19 on city (driving very soft but not much)(not like a grandpa) if you can buy a 31 are very good i recomend you the firestone for the mpg and power and bfg at if you whant off road traccion
I have the 32" BFG AT on my 99 4 banger. I went up from a 31" tire and didn't notice much difference. This is my daily driver and they are nice and quiet and ride smooth. I had them on a previous Jeep and they wear really well too.
Currently have 31s on my 03 2.4l, with a zone 3'' lift and I have no complaints. I want to run 33s, but I don't want to re-gear. I think 32s will be my choice. The 4cyls have 4.11 gearing so I think Ill be fine, or I at least hope I will be.
