31's or 33's?

Just getting a little impatient but want to get some feedback....Will a 31x10.5 look much bigger than a 30x9.5? I don't want to fork out the bucks for 33's and suffer in mileage and was wondering how 31's would look with the 4" lift? I recently got some some 15x8 black rims and want to get them on....would 31's look ok?

A 31x9 is going to lay down on a 8" wheel more than a 10.5 Shop around looking at actual height and width. Some 31x10.5 may actually measure over 32 on an 8" wheel. I say whatever floats your boat

Make sure you are aware of all the other issues that go with that much lift and larger tires. You most likely already know but just thought I would throw it out there. Gearing is one thing to look at before going to 33's. I am running about 5" of lift and 33's.

Here is my YJ with 4" lift and 31" tires. Personally, I like the look.

And as you can see, I can still stuff the tires into the fenders with 31s.
