92 YJ 4" lift / tires?

I have a 4" lift on my 92 4.0 YJ with a Hardtop and automatic. I need practical advice on tires on 15X8 Rockcrawlers. I still have the Dana 35 rear and am pretty sure 32" tires will grenade my factory rear if I offroad it hard. I am leaning towards 31X10.5, what's the best All-terrain or Mud that can survive daily pavement driving? Thanks in advance.

I think you're being a little cautious. IMHO, you can run 33 x 12.50 with a light foot and still hit some of the hard trails out there. Of course if you like to go flying through things at wide open throttle, then... might wanna reconsider, but smart driving you should be fine. Especially if you aren't locked and have the stock gearing. There are *some* that even run 35's on locked D35c without breaking them.

Just dump the steel wheels! They add so much weight to the setup. With an alloy you'll get better pickup, better braking and better gas mileage. Not to mention the fact that you won't be stressing the shafts as much. You can increase tire size significantly using alloys before you get near the weight of a smaller tire on steel. That, and the benefits of steel are hogwash from my experience. Sure, you can pound them back if you bend them. But they'll need to be replaced in any case cause they're most likely gonna leak at least slowly. On top of that, they bend way too easily. With stock axles, you're just better off with a lightweight rim.
