Stock Wheel, Large Tires Question

Heya, hows it goin? Hope you guys can either save me some money, or help prevent an expensive mistake.

So I've got this 1993 YJ, which is going to have a 4" SUA lift put on. What I would like to do is put 31x10.5x15 Goodyear Duratracs on the stock wheels.

I'm wondering how this would work out. Would it rub my springs? Wheel well? Fenders?

Or would I be better off getting wheels that I know would work? Eyes are on Cragar Soft 8s 15x8 4"BS.

Thanks all.

I have stock 15x8 gambler rims and with 10.5 wide tires with a 4" lift and I experienced some rubbing. Granted I'm running 33x10.5 but the width is the determining factor. I simply adjusted the steering stops to prevent the rubbing. These will be my winter tires once I get new rims and 35x12.5s for the summer. Have to get the 8.8 and D30 with 4.10s installed first. They're waiting to be cleaned up and installed...looks like a good winter project.
