30x9.5 or 31x10.5. Stock wheels, 3" lift. What fit?

Looking for new tires, and not sure what size works.
They will be on stock wheels, 3" lift. I'd rather not do any body work unless it is very minimal and easy.

I tried searching, but end up feeling like I am going in circles.


Cooper DISCOVERER STT tires if it matters.


99 XJ, black, 4x4, NP231, 8.25 rear. Fully locked.
5.5" long arm lift, 35x12.5x15 Kumo KL71MT

I have 30x9.5 of stock rims with no body issues. The only time you will hit is at full turn on the LCAs. Said tires at at fullest stuff Iv ever had and I never see this much articulation on a trail. IMHO a 31x10.5 would be fine on 3" lift

Thereīs a lot of info about this, maybe thatīs what got you confused, with 3" lift you should be able to fit 31x10.5 perfectly, perhaps you wonīt be able to perform a full turn without rubbing but that really shouldnīt be an issue longer bump stop bolts in the steering stops could easy solve that or just donīt full turn while driving.

Check this should give you a more graphic idea:

^This. Go 31's. On the stock wheels you will have insufficient backspacing and either do as recommended above or get some 1.5" wheel spacers. I have wheel spacers on both my XJ and WJ OEM wheels and they work great.
