Tires with lift

Y'all think 31x10.50s would look alright with a 2.5 in lift?

That's what I went with but havent installed the lift yet. I got some issues I need to work out with the TJ first.
I was wondering the same thing and looking under google images for similar folk. I think the 31's are going to be a tad small. If you find any photos pm me please.

You don't need a lift for 31s, unless that's what you want to do, or are planning for bigger tires in the future.

I agree with 2Jhanna, but to answer your question, In my opinion, yes it would look alright.

I did a 2" and it looks awesome with 31s. You could probably do 32s, but dont quote me.

31s are perfect for a 2.5 inch lift.

31s with a 2" budget boost is a good entry level step in modifying your jeep IMO. You should though get appropriate shocks for the 2" lift.

I am running 31" Duratrac's with 2.5 OME lift, works well, looks fine and plenty of space in the wheel wells. There seem to be generally good opinions about this OME lift over the years on this forum in many discussions.

Dirk is a stand up guy, don't worry about giving him a ton of questions. He will walk you right threw the details.
