Tire size question

Had a set of 31/10.50/15's pretty much fall in my lap today.. Will they fit my stock 94 ZJ? I'm pretty sure they'll scrub a little if I go to full steering lock, but I plan to avoid that whenever possible. I'm already running 235/70/15's with no issue, and the 31's don't look that much bigger.. All advice is appreciated, and thanks in advance.

It seems like it's different on every ride. My '98 with stock upcountry suspension is sitting on 31's and all that was trimmed was the corner of the front bumper cover and I don't rub

When i first bought mine i had no lift, canyon wheels and 31x10.50 hankook dynapro m/ts. had no rub. then i put 1" spacers on and 33x12.50, they rubbed the sway bar when at full lock, but normal driving no problem. I never had a plastic bumper cover, you may have to trim that. Seems it mostly depends on how your springs sag over time.

I'm at more or less 31's on the niner and they rub at full lock, but they're fine for street driving. In general 31's will fit on stock, but you won't be able to go offroad.

individual jeeps matter, mine stock would flex as much as stock suspension would allow without sway bars front and rear and no rub. again though, i never had a plastic bumper cover, it was torn off when i bought it.

30x9.5 is the largest you can run on a factory zj. 31's require a 2" lift with slight modifications(trimming) to avoid rubbing. 32's require 3" lift plus medium amounts of trimming. 33's require 3-5" lift and moderate amounts of trimming. Anything bigger requires rather expensive modifications(large lift, body mods, heavy trimming, steering stops, etc). That's off memory so the last may not be 100% but the first 4 are.

Do you still have your front bumper cover on?

Yes, but again it's a street queen, I don't even go over curb at the mall.

Then they probably won't work for me.. My parents live off of a pretty rough dirt road, and I can't avoid visiting them just because of my tires.. Guess I'll just have to sell them, since I can't afford a lift right now.. Hate to though, not very often that 31's just find you out of nowhere.. Especially when I hadn't started looking for them yet.. Oh well, such is life..

Bb's aren't that expensive.

Lol.. Only reason I already have the 31's is because they were given to me.. Unless someone gives me a BB, I can't afford it right now, and I don't see that happening.. Lol
