Tire decision: 31 or 33?
I have been needing new tires for my 1983 CJ7 but wanted to wait until I did the YJ spring conversion and knew what the truck's height would be.
It's now done, and I gained about 3" from what it was (and as flat as the original springs were, it's probably only an inch or two over what it would have been with CJ springs).
I was thinking about 31 x 10.5, but I'm tempted to go for 33-inch.
I think there's enough room, I just wonder about the extra size and bulk and what they would do in terms of ride, noise, steering, mileage, etc.
Performance-wise, is there any compelling reason to go with 33 instead of 31?
Especially when this CJ will be driven mostly on pavement, both in-town and on the highway.
