According to the FAQ above, you can run 30" x 9.5" with little to no trimming on stock suspension. I can't remember if the Orvis came with Upcountry springs or not, but if it did, you should be able to run a bit bigger than the 30x9.5.

I run 245/75 on my niner, thats about as much as I would stuff under it. Your orvis should have upcountry, you may be able to stuff true 31's.

Depends on what kind of driving you do, if you're gonna disco you won't be able to stuff as much meat under it at that height.

When mine was just UC i ran some tall 245's and wouldn't go bigger especially if you're going to ever go on the dirt. I took it through some pretty serious stuff with it like that and it flexed well. But yea as kg6mov said, Orvis has UC but 31's would only be ok, if you dont hit speedbumps and dont go to the trails. Might have to trim fenders

245-70-16 on my '97 Orvis with stock snowflakes. I didn't have to trim but they'd rub my LCA's a little on full lock.

30x9.5r15

i have a 2 inch BB and my 30x9.5s still rub a little bit at full lock. id hate to see what 31s would do at stock height, even with upcountry. it would be fine if you always drove in straight lines and never compressed the suspension

'98 upcountry with 31x10.50's. Never had an issue with rubbing anywhere. Had it flexed pretty good a few times but never disco'd. PO trimmed the lower corner of the front bumper cover

Guess not lol. There's a guy in a local club that has a '97 with v8 springs and a 2" bb that can't fit 31's if he wanted

Granted I am completely stock, with 225s. But I flexed her out pretty good yesterday. I was disco'd in the front. I believe my tire hit that lovely pinch weld once or twice. Made a noise here and there. So even with stock tires, I still managed to hit inside the fender well. My advise is to just be careful flexing with bigger tires.
