I am new to the Jeep world and new to the forum. So far I've learned a ton by just reading all the great info here. So thanks for that.
I recently bought a completely stock 95 YJ 2.5L 4Cyl and I'm loving it (except for the lack of power maybe). It's my daily driver, mostly on the freeway during the week but I plan to do some off roading on weekends when it's ready.
I installed a Rough Country 2.5" lift kit last weekend. It made a huge difference in ride quality (the old suspension was shot, pretty much riding on the bump stops in back) and looks great too. Now I'm ready for new tires. I'm currently running 235/75R15's, and I'd like to go with 31" x 10.5". But I have a friend that says those would be too much for the wimpy 4 banger.
So my questions is how much will the bigger tires affect acceleration on the road and how much additional stress will they put on the engine compared to what I have now?
