i was just wondering if i could fit 31x11.50 with out a lift on a 94yj. I know it would be useless off road, however it will only not be lifted for a few weeks. cash flow permitting. And i can get a great deal on these tires now. Any suggestions?
I'm no expert but from what I had read here, they will fit but you will get lots of fender flare rubbing. Probably damage the fender flares some. But if you are lifting it soon anyway, buy them. You can always put them on later or put them on now and avoid serious off roading.

Yes, they will fit. In fact, I just saw a jeep with 31's on my walk over from my parking garage. He had no lift and had these tires on the stock 15x7 rims. Of course, he had almost no clearance. If you are careful and drive very slowly over bumps or potholes, you might not tear up your flares.

Yes you can put those tires on without a lift. I had 30 x 9.50s on my stock 7" wheels with minimal rubbing. However, I had many friends who wanted that extra inch. They will fit but they will rub. You will rub your fender flares when you go over big bumps. If you're planning on lifting it soon and you've got a good deal on the tires now that won't be there when you get the lift, I would buy them and hold on to them until I got the lift or drive very carefully with them on.
Hope this helps
I put 32x12.5 on my stock 89 before i did my lift this past weekend. they WILL rub. there is a semi-circular area where the tires have rubbed away some of the fender flare on mine. it looks fine but i am thinking of replacing them anyway. i ran like that since september...if that gives you any idea.
They will fit but they will rub badly, here's my two cents. I have an 88' with a three inch body and 32x11.50's on the stock rim with out rubbing. Just go out and buy the 1 1/2" shackles, it will cost you about 60 to 80 bucks, but they will fit and you can still flaug it. That will take care of your problem and then you can sat that you have a lifted jeep.
