Research Time: 31x10.5 on stock rims?

for now, I want to see what a 2 inch lift with 31x10.5's would look like on stock rims. Anybody have this set-up with pictures to boot? Is it going to rub anywhere? I like the look of the BF mud terrains.

I have 31's on my stock Jeep now. I am planning to add a BDS 2" lift
this next week. It rubs now obviously. BDS says 31's will run ok. I
will take an after pic for you.

You're rubbing with 31x10.5s on a stock suspension? Im running that now, BFG ATs with 2002 stock, no problems at all. If i misread what you were saying, disregard.

My squeeze just after we backed "The red one" out of the garage with the new 2" lift. Oh and for the record I LOVE THESE TIRES!!! The last shot of the tires was taken before the 2" lift.

Is this for a TJ or a YJ? all I see is TJs pix. I got a YJ on a stock suspension setup on 31-10.5-15 on stock Cherokee rims that rubs on my springs any time I go left or right all the way. I'm planning to change rims to Cragar 365 series rims with 3.75 backspacing that will resolve the issue for just under $300 delivered.

You will most likely get rubbing at full turn against the leaf spring with stock rims. You can adjust the steering, or buy different rims. I suggest Crager Soft 8's.

Great tires with phenomenal price - $47 a piece. I likes the five spoke design better (I guess it's just me) and they have a 1/4" bigger offset. In any case thanks a bunch for directing me to those.

Dude, change them. I don't think they complement the car (same as mine before). I posted a link above.

No caps. You'd have to buy the caps (and probably nuts) yourself. No taxes though

You're right. I meant rims. Just can't correct it now. In any case, that was about RIMS! sorry for the confusion.
