bigger tires bigger brakes?
If i upgrade from my 31 bfg ats to 33 bfg at's other than gearing will i need bigger brakes?
33s are the really the cut off point, for not needing bigger brakes. If you need to replace the brakes I would look at some centic rotors, and EBC yellow stuff brake pads though.

It depends on your Jeep.I upgraded to Centric rotors and EBC yellowstuff pads and they were much better than stock.My 33's were fine on stock brakes.My 98' sucked with 35's and stock brakes and my 03' brakes work fine with 35's.It's all up to you and how your Jeep works.
If you're replacing them anyway, get the Centric Premium rotors and EBC yellowstuff pads as recommended by Boogie. With 33s you're probably "OK" without the upgrade, but if you get the upgrade you won't be sorry.
