31 x 10.5 R15

Gearing is the other issue. 31s are tallest that is practical with stock gears, IMO.

Get 31s.

I ran 31s and then 33s on my LJ. I learned that I prefer 31s because not only cheaper easier to fit, but they offer better acceleration and braking, way better gas mileage, and less parts breakage. I also felt it steered better with 31s.

31s are awesome.

32's won't work without lifting. You'll have close clearance to the fenders and may rub at full lock.
