new tires on the way!!
 
So today i was looking at my tires and im pretty sure i need to change them really soon. first of all my 2 rear tires are just 5-7 mm in depth and some pieces of rubber are missing.
my 2 front are in better shape 10-13 mm in depth but one is very very damaged one of the lugs is missing completely.
my jeep its a 06 ruby and those are the stock tires the wrangler MT/R. and they have 50,805 KM so i think its a good time to change them.
but as you know tires aren't cheap so i want to do this right in the first move
im thinking to upgrade to 31x10.50R16 because i want bigger tires!!!
but im thinking about TRUE SIZE so i did my homework and this are the results

245/75R16
diameter 30.47 in
width 9.65 in
255/75R16
diameter 31.06in
width 10.04
31x10.5R16
diameter 30.93in
width 10.51

so the only question i have
should i upgrade to 31īs or 255īs my jeep its completly stock lift kit will arrive in more than 3-4 months so i need tires that i can use and later sell them.
i will be installing a 2.5 OEM plus 1.25 BL and 1MML. but until then what you think?

BTW what tire do you suggest me?
a friend of mine has 2 245īs out from 2 spare rubi tires they are kinda new but 3-4 years old and they are cheap and my spare its almost new, should i just buy another new tire and keep it until new tires? im gonna sell them anyway to make money for my 285īs after the lift of course

Buy some cheap, used tyres to just get you through till you get the lift maybe?

What do you want to run when you get the lift? Would it be cheaper to buy the tyres you want to use, and a cheap 2" BB until you get the proper lift? I'm just thinking you'd lose more money on the tyres than a cheap few spacers might cost if its only a few months away?

Just trying to offer some ideas?

Thanks for the idea.
I really like the dpgoffroad combo that makes 3.75in o lift.
My goal is to run 4in and 285'S that should do it.
