Who's running 31's on 15x7 Ecco rims? Pics?

How well does a 31x10.5 bead and sit on a 7" Ecco rim? If anyone can post pics of this combination (or any other 7" OE wheel), I'd really appreciate it.

Tires

I have 31-10.50s on my stock rims with a stock suspension. I haven't had any trouble other than a little rubbing when you crank it all the way.

^^^^ jeep gambler wheels...15x8 with 5.25'' backspacing.

To fix the rubbing issue at full lock on your lower control arm simple adjust the steering stop. Just put a washer or two behind the stop bolt.

Don't have a picture for you bud, but it works just fine. Only issue you may run into is the tire rubbing the lower control arm at full lock. To fix the issue read the post above this one. ^^^^^

Thanks distorted, i was hoping to get a little info on my wheels. And that should fix up the rubbing too. Thanks!

Perfectly well, that size wheel is actually optimal for a 10.5" wide tire.

Here's how to add a washer under the steering bolt stop if necessary. http://4x4xplor.com/steerstop.html

Main concern was sloppy steering, secondary was sloppy looks. I tend to corner hard on my way to the wheeling park.

Here you go. I had to look up Ecco wheels to make sure that is what I have.

Fits very well and did not have any rubbing issues till I installed the 2-1/2" lift. (the lift made the track bar pull the front axle a little to the driver's side, so now I rub on full right turn)

Thanks, I actually would have preferred dark blue, but this was an impulse buy and they only had two used Jeeps and they were both black. My next Jeep will most likely be a dark blue, dark green or the dark red on a JK 4-door Rubi. I have 1-1/2 to 2 years before that happens though. I have to wait till my son gets his driver's license, then he gets my TJ.

It is a custom one. I designed and built it. I am actually thinking of making myself a new front bumper with the same style brushguard and a winch mount. I haven't put much on paper yet. It is too cold out to take off the bumper to get the dimensions I need.
