They'll work fine on your stock rims. Your tires might rub your springs a little in tight turns. You can adjust your steering stops a little or just back off a little when ya feel/hear the tires rubbing the springs.

31's will not fit under a YJ unless you have a lift. It doesn't matter what your backspacing is. THEY WILL RUB.

Oh take your TJ butt on outta here! Hey, I'm kidding don't get flustered. The fellow already has been asking the lift questions in the YJ forum. He knows, he just asked a tire question in the tire forum is all. And you can put 31s on a YJ without lift and not rub by the way. But it's a YJ secret. You gotta know the handshake or we won't tell ya.

hehehe yeah..
i plan on doing a 1" body lift.. yeah i know it's a compromise, but i'm still a newbie and i lack $$$ at the moment.. plus it's generally required if you're going to run 33's - 35's.. figure i'll do a SOA conversion and CV driveshafts and gears later.. at the moment.. i've just been donated some slightly used 235/75R15's by my dad and figure those are better than the street treads i have now.. oh.. the new U-joints all around made a HUGE difference in how my YJ rode, shifted, accelerated..
