Most people have a very liberal view of fitment and will accept rubbing on the control arms, sway bar, bumper fascia, and fender just because they like the bigger tires.

These guys fitting larger than 30" tires on stock leave the evidence of their proper install all over the outer lugs of their tires
I have been runnin my 31" tires for almost a year now and no more wear on the inner lugs than the outer an I have been almost full flex out in the desert while turning and no rub... however at full lock I would have rubbed. anyway I already told him a BB and the right backspacing and trimming will negate that.

BUT. no need to be a little snot about it. and money for what? tires? F IT! give it a shot. whether or not its an open top JEEP or not, JEEPS are FUN! Do what you want, learn from your mistakes! The only way to learn to swim is by jumpin in the water!
Not all of us have the money to learn from our mistakes and our ZJs are DDs.
