Wheel/tire package for XJ

New to the Jeep thing, just making sure I'm doing this right.

2000 XJ with RC 3" lift

Looking to get the Cragar soft 8's as they are cheap and look good. Is the size I get a 15x7, or 15x8? I'm pretty sure I get the 5x4.5 with a 4" BS, right? Will this BS stick the wheels out too much, or will it be perfect?

Tires I want to get are the treadwright 31x10.5 15's. Question, which would be better in the mud and for all around off road traction, the Crawler M/T or the Guard Dog's? Don't care about the street much as it's not a pavement pounder.



Will I need to trim the fenders and/or bumpers?

Thanks guys.

4.25-4.75 BS is more commonly used on Cherokees. 4.0 BS is too much. Get 15x8 5/4.5 bolt pattern. With 3" and 31's you may need to trim a little bit. Remember to extend your bumpstops 1" longer than stock.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, AR-15 sporting rifles account for nearly 20% of all U.S. firearms sales.
