4Jeepn Sounds like you also need to get longer bump stops.

Johnmlebel 33" dura is what i have on mine great tires and quiet

Arch Stanton Tire rack or have Discount match the price. Pep Boys matched the COSTCO price for my BFG AT KO's. Actually they gave me the 30" Costco price for taking so long to get my tires. The 33" BFG MT KM2's look mighty nice. I can see where adding bigger tires can open a can of worms for buying all kinds of Jeep mods.

cork1958 All I can say is that going from 35's to 31's would DEFINITELY look like heck!!

The tires on the Jeep's in the pic birtydugger posted look awesome!!

birtydugger hi guys..u will be good on 33"..my friend has a 2" BB & 1"BL..on his 2001 TJ...works great! no rubbing at all...we all run the KUMHO KL71..they are directional and have wide lugs which helps them self clean the mud out..we have had alot of snow here in UK lately 16" deep and they worked great in the deep stuff and on ice!!...cheap too...better than my BFG MUDS in ice!! but all ur tyre choices are good.

I figured with the lift I have that if I ever wanted to do anything except go through potholes that I should probably go with 31s. I feel like 33s would look better but I know I could go a lot more places with 31s. I am just leery of making the jump from 35s to 31s (I like the way it looks now, I just hate always havin my 35s rub). I was just wondering what you guys thought. Also, this is a list of my top choices, I am just curious as to what you guys thought. Thanks for any contribution.

BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 - Tire Details - Discount Tire Direct

Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac - Tire Details - Discount Tire Direct

Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 - Tire Details - Discount Tire Direct

you guys can give me any other options or anything else that I dont have listed or if you guys know where to get it cheaper than what I have listed here.
Go with 33's. Here is a site a lot cheaper Tire List | Treadepot.com . Also look at cooper STT. I run those and are great on and off road. Siped mud tire.

s3nt3nc3d Why would you be able to do more with the 31's? Go with the 33's...4" of lift should be perfect for the 33's. You'll have a pretty ugly gap in the wheel wells with the 31's. I'd recommend the Goodyear Duratracs...those are what I intend to go with next. Running the BFG A/Ts currently...the KM2's are nice, but they ain't cheap.
