fakeelvis thanks guys, I don't mind the 31s one bit, although 33s would look a bit better, its also more money! I will talk to a different tire guy and see what I can do, thanks for the help

Jerry Bransford Trust me, your 31x10.50 tires do not need a wider wheel. The optimal wheel width for that size tire is a 15x7 and certainly no wider than 15x8. 15x8 would be optimal for 33x12.50.

MarkGLHS I bet your 3.07 geared auto Sahara would better with a set of 30" tires on 15 x 8 great for light trail work and really nice for street driving.

Big Cole Have you considered selling your current wheels and replacing them with correct width wheels? You can find a set of used OEM wheels for cheap and sell your current wheels on craigslist

opinions needed please

bought a 2000 sahara (4.0, 3.07 gears, auto) that po had put lift on, looks to be 2-3" (not sure if there is a way to be precise) Anyways, I need new tires and currently the 31/10.5/15s seem to bubble out, ive been told this is caused by the current rims needing a wider tire. My choices are as follows....

new 31/10.5/15s and deal with it though ive been told they will wear faster
33/12.5/15s (all terrain)

We do some light trail riding and fart around town when its nice out, no heavy rock climbing or anything. Would I be ok to stick with the 31s or would it be better to spend the extra few bucks on the 33s?

thanks for any help
