The tire store can probably determine if you have limited slip or open rear diff.

If you are getting 15 x 8 wheels, you could get 32 x 11.5 or 31 x 10.5 tires. There are a lot more choices of 31s and 31 works better with stock gearing.

I might try 31's next go round. I would like to keep the big tire look if possible. The jeep has a 3" or 4" black diamond suspension lift, so I want to fill up the fender well as much as possible. The 32x11.5x15 is a shot at compromise with keeping the same look and helping pep and mpg. If it still lugs more than I'd like I might consider the 31's on the next tire change. The guy I got it from said it had 35's on it before the 33's. I can't imagine how sluggish that must have been although I have buddies that are running the exact thing on there jeeps. I'm probably being to picky but it is what it is. My boss has a 97 with the 4.0 and stock tires. I let him drive minen to lunch the other day and he said it seemed fine on power. Maybe Im just used to the 5.4 in my F150. Anywho, I'm excited about getting some new skins and wheels, and taking it to the farm for a little logging road fun. I can't wait to get some cash and start making it mine. Bumpers are in the future and either vinyl floor, or line x for the interior. After those maybe light bar and a radio with an auxiliary jack for my ipod and iphone.

I didn't realize it's lifted that much.

Well then, 32s make sense.
