lift and tires again

Ok, I have a relatively stock YJ. I want to put on some bigger tires. I ordered a 1 1/4" shackle lift and I have offset AR wheels. Can I get away with running 31's? Or, should I settle for like 30" tires. Any help is appreciated.

I purchased my jeep with 31's and had no problems with them other than they looked all wrong with the 3.5" lift that also came on it. With your 4banger and 31's You should still have a top speed of 80ish, assuming that your gears are probably 4.10. Id say go 31, the bigger the better
