Jeep XJ 6.5 inch lift with different tire sizes

hey guys right now my xj has a 4 inch lift on 31 KM2's. however i wanted to get a new lift thinking a 6.5 inch lift. only problem is the KM2's i have still have 90 percent tread. I know it would look silly on a 6.5 inch lift but i wanna see how ridiculous it would look as i would like to wear down these tires before getting 33's.

I just dont have the money to upgrade all at once. Thanks in advance

my lift right now is pretty beat up. the springs are sagging hard and it is limiting me when i am wheeling. i am even rubbing on the front tires

buy what you want when you want. if you want to run a new 6.5" lift on your current tires, do it. i ran 5" on 29's for about 2 years. used it as a DD and wheeled it like that. no complaints. why wait for 33's when you can enjoy having a good lift sooner? whats it matter if is simply LOOKS goofy for a bit? it doesnt

heres my jeep. about 6" with 33's

I dont think 6.5 lift on completely stock, uncut fenders on 31s would be THAT bad. I say buy the lift and do it.
