Hankook 31" Tires on '95 YJ w/ No Lift..

Well, I had the Sahara checked out and the guy told me it was in better condition than any Jeep he has seen...other than it neede an alignment. So, I am now a proud owner of my 1st Jeep!
I have a couple of questions I thought I would throw out here for anyone that feels like responding:

1. Any opinion on Hankook Tires?
2. Will 31x10.5x15 tires fit on a jeep
with no lift?
3. If it needs a lift, how high, and what
kind of lift?

I am supposed to have them put on first thing in the morning. !Gracias! in advance...

Hankook - Good
31" tire on stock Jeep - Fit w/ some rubbing on full flex

If your springs are sagged out (common), you can have them re-arched to allow the tires to fit properly ..

Laters!

I had 31x10.5x15's put on stock 15x7 rims. the only problem I had was rubbing the springs on a hard turn - a couple washers on the steering stops fixed this. also aftermarket rims with wider backspacing would prevent this also. 1 problem i did not expect was with the bigger spare on the tailgate - my hardtop hatch would not clear the 31. (i now have a swing-out tire carrier on order). I also have a '95 YJ, and have since put on a 2" lift.
happy trails,
Marshall

Personally, I think 30" tires are about as far as you should go on a YJ with no lift. You'll rub the springs if you keep the stock offset, which is better than getting them out away from the springs with a different offset and rubbing the flares and wearing them tell tale curves into the flares. No matter what offset you run, you'll be contacting the fenders when you off road. 30" tires are what you want. If you don't absolutely need tires right now, save your money for a 2" lift or something.
