You can run 31x1050's without much issue. I have them on mine, mounted on 15x8 rims, these rims actually. They rub a tiny bit with the wheels turned fully one way, but not the other way. I forget which way, lol.
Keep in mind that some tire companies measure their tires differently, too. Some "10.50" tires may be slightly wider or narrower than 10.5 inches on the tread. My mud/snow tires are a tad narrower than my A/T's, but not much.

Backspacing refers to how far a rim will move your tire from the hub, to put it simply. Moving the tires out a little bit will help to prevent tires rubbing on steering components when you run larger-than-stock tires.


What are your plans for your TJ, Salman? Are you an avid wheeler, new to off-roading, weekend warrior?

It also looks like OU812 is missing a lug nut in that pic
