Mine, as it sits, has 285/75/15 (pretty much 31's) on stock rims. They are tall, but not wide. I don't like it, feels too top heavy.
So I am going with 8" wide, 4" backspaced rims, this will move the wheels out and make the stance wider.
I am going to use Cragar Soft 8 rims, they are black and cost about $50 each.
For fenders, I have these (just came in today)...
Amazon.com: Rugged Ridge 11608.11 7" Fender Flare Kit for TJ Jeep Wrangler 1997-2006 - 6 Piece: Automotive
(Not my Jeep)
They are wider than stock, but keep the look/shape of stock. I don't care for pocket style flares unless you have her lifted and armored up.
This site will help you see different lift/tire size options. You can also see different fenders.

It helped me decide that I wanted a 3" lift with 33x12.5 tires on 15x8 rims with 7" stock style fenders. There's a couple in there set up just like that. lol

For 50,000+ mile All Terrain, I have been really happy with the DynaPro ATM's. Great tire for the money...but they are made in Korea. I currently have a E rated set on my 1 Ton and have then in the snow, sand, desert, FS roads, etc and they have been great.

|digio12||Thanks for the advice and photos! Now how about a follow up question. While I'm at it, my flares are beat. While I was looking for the OEM replacements, I found that Buschwacker makes an aftermarket set that give a nice look. They are the 6" pocket style fender flare. My concern is that these flares will 'swallow' my tires. It sounds nitpicky, I know, but the last thing I want is for these flares to extend far past the tire taking away from the look I am going for. If I am going for a set of 31x10.5x15 tires on a stock TJ, are these flares too big? Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.|

I had a set of Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor on my Ranger for 3 years. Guy that bought it last week thought they were brand new when he saw them.
I loved those tires. Rode well, held up well, looked good...
They also make a more aggressive version..
The Silent Armor line apparently has Kevlar reinforced sidewalls... not sure if it's just hype or not but I liked the ones I had and I got one hell of a deal on them because I used to deliver auto parts to Goodyear. lol
As for the Jeep, I am putting General Grabbers on it.
It was either those or Mastercraft Coursers.
