Lift required for tires?

Ive got stock wrangler street tires and want to upgrade to some 31" ATs
but I cant find any answers about if I need to lift my jeep.
Could anyone tell me if I need to lift my 2010 JK wrangler to put on 31" tires? If I don't lift it will the tires rub against the fenders if I'm offroading?
I cant really afford to get tires as well as lift right now.

Thanks!

Your stock JK should be able to handle 31" tires with no problem.

Depending on what edition you have, a 31" tire is actually decreasing in tire size. Rubicons and Sahara's come stock with about a 32" tire.

You can run up to a 33" with the possibility of running a 35" tire stock. JK's come with much more clearance form the factory than previous models. Meaning you can run much larger tires with lower lift.

Hope this helps, shoot me a PM if you have any other questions!
