I wouldn't recommend going with any more tire when you've only got a 2" lift... but that's because I like to leave room for flex. Here is my former '00 SE on the same 2" BB and 31" MT/Rs:

Did that drain your horspepower or your acceleration, and do you have a 4 or 6 cylinder?

tlarm139 well im getting new wheels anyway, i think ill go woth 31x10.5's just to be safe, then if want later, ill throw 32's on. i like wide and squatty looking jeeps, 31's should give it that stance on a BB right?

jeepinmichguy Get 31's, it looks better. If you are going to wheel you need to add bumpstop as well if you are going to disconnect the swaybar. The backspacing on your rims will play a role in determining how much.

No rubbing cause they're only 10" wide.... assuming they're 255's.... It's hard to tell from your post...

OP if you stay at 10.5" or less wide, then you shouldn't rub. If you go wider, you'll want new wheels or spacers to account for the backspacing...

G-Pur They may rub a bit if you run stock wheels. If you put some washers on the steering stops though, it will prevent that from happening.

tlarm139 @InfernoGirl, Will there be any rubbing?
12-30-2010 07:31 PM
InfernoGirl 32's will look better, but they are harder to find......

2 inch Rubicon Express BB help

Okay so, I came to the conclusion that I am getting the Rubicon Express Budget Boost for my 2001 Wrangler Sport. It is more economical and a better way for me to go rather then a whole new coil lift. Im deciding what size tires to get. I really dont like a big gap between the tires and the body/fenders. I offroad a little but not much. I kind of want the tires to look a little stuffed, but i dont want any rub. Will 31's or 32's be better? if anyone is running this setup NO BODY LIFT, tell me how it looks and post some pictures. Thanks !
