Newbie Tire Questios

I just purchased a bone stock 2000 TJ Sport with 81,000 miles, a 4.0 and a 5-speed. I was planning on purchasing some 31x10.5x15's for it this week, but I have a few questions:

1) Will I need to regear the rearend? If yes, to what?

2) Speedo adjustments needed?

3) Is this a nice look and stance for a stock Jeep (Pic's mabe) ? It has 235's on it now and they look small with lots a wheel well showing.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, and one more stupid question:

Will the stock spare tire carrier work with the 31's and stock Gambler wheels?

The gear change is kind of ur own deal.but not really required going to that size of tire. I have a 2012 factory rim with a 265/75/r16 on it. Which i think is a 31". It went on the back with no problems. Just have to press down on the rubber stops a little more than they started out. The speedometer will be off a little it. Maybe at the most 5 mph
