  • tires for a YJ?

    i'm looking to put on bigger tires on my 95 YJ (Rio Grande) and want to know if 31x10.5 will fit on the stock rims or the biggest size tires that will. i like the rims that are on the jeep now and only want to put on bigger tires when i do a 2" body lift. hopefully i will be doing a 3-4" suspension lift in the next couple of months too. thanks for your help!

    31x10.5 will fit the stock rims. They need to be on 15x7 in rims and that is what your stock rims are. I put a 2" body lift on my 95 and 31x10.5 fit just fine. There is some tire rub on full turn, but you can fix that. There is the bolt with a washer welded to it, that serves as your turn stop. Pull it out and put a washer or two on it, that will be enough to stop the rub. That is what I did and it worked for me. If you put bigger tires on after the suspension lift you may need bigger wheels. I found that you need 15x8 for anything wider than 10.5's. I plan on putting 33x12.5's on when I lift it furter. I will also need different back spacing to do it, you don't for the 31x10.5's. Hope that helps.

        I usually use Discount Tire for regular tires and 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers for specialty tires. I just call and see if they have the tires that I want stocked in either their Oklahoma City or Sacramento warehouses. I usually ask to see if they have any discounts or promos going for the size, model and make that I am looking for. They carry a low price guarantee, so if you find a place that has lower prices, make them a quote, they'll check up on it and probably drop the price to below what was quoted.

        By the way, if you find a place that sells new tires for less than these jokers, let me know.... their delivery service is the only complaint I've got with them.
