30/9.5 Tires

Do I need to lift my ZJ to run 30/9.5 tires? How much will these tires affect my gas mileage? And how do I go about making the speedometer read the correct speed?

I'm running a set of 30x9.50 Kumho Mud Terrains on my 95, with no lift. The previous owner had 31x10.50's on it when I bought it, so it was already trimmed a bit.

look at what you have now, and that will give you an idea of how much bigger a 30 in is. Most stock tires are 28 or 29, so you shouldn't need to lift it or anything.
