Will they fit?

Thinking of swapping my cookie cutter 30x9.5 BFG A/T's for a set of Goodyear 31x10.5 MT/R's.

I'm at bone stock height right now. Plan on a 2" suspension lift sometime next year however.

I'm not worried about vertical height with the flares because I just ordered a set of bushwacker flat fenders. Also my wheels are pro comp's with a 4.5" BS

My main question is will I rub?

They'll fit fine with no problem.

Awesome thanks Jerry. My BS should stop all arm rubbing right? I won't need to worry about spacers or washers on my turn stops?

Your 4.5" of BS will prevent the inside sidewalls of the tires from rubbing when the steering wheel is turned all the way. No need for washers on the steering bolt stops.

Jerry I did have another question. The wheels I have wanted since the get go are pro comp alloys. They have 3.75 BS. A 4WD tech said they wouldn't mount them because the wheels would stick out too far with no lift. Is there any merit to this? Basic logic tells me if my vehicle gets higher the wheels still sick out however far their BS permits?

Ideally in a perfect world I want the alloys(15x8 3.75 BS) with the GY MTR K's (31x10.5 r15). Right now I have no lift but I don't see any issue who that setup with the 3.75 BS and my flat fender flares. Am I crazy in thinking this is a good to go combo?

Note: I will be added a 2" suspension lift sometime in the future

15x8 wheels with 3.75" backspacing and 31x10.5's will stick out past the edge of the fender flare by 3/4" or so. Without a lift I could see it rubbing which may be what their concern was. I run 31x10.5's on 15x8's with 3.56" backspacing and I was outside of the stock fender flares by over an inch. I now have rubicon flares on it and I still have about 1/4" or just under sticking out past the edge.
