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.

BS is backspacing. It is where the mounting surface sits in relation to the inner edge of the rim.

So is there any easy way to tell what will work? I was hoping to have them sticking out a little more on the sides. Just need a good idea of what to be looking at.

DO NOT BUY TREADWRIGHTS!

Read my thread in this section, as well as the other thread about them. i lifted my XJ 3" with the rusty's kit and some extras. I went with 31" Cooper STT and love them. With 3" of lift and 31's, you will probably be like me and need to trim your front bumper and the lower rear section of the front fender flare. Just for god sakes, please do yourself a favor and do NOT buy the treadwrights!!!!!!!!!

They may not be a great option any more. Quality issues and terrible customer service have become very common for TW recently it would seem.

P.S. The OP posted about TW 3 years ago.

With no lift, those will rip your front flares off when turning. And for a 31x10.50 you'd be better off with a 15x8 rim.

Will a 30 by 9.5 tire fit?

That's borderline. You may have to get them mounted to see. But you did say you were willing to trim if necessary. All you may need is to remove the flares.
