yes, but expect minor rubbing when you flex, if your jeeps not lifted at all, and check that the pattern is 5X4.5

'98 TJ Manual -2.5" rcx long arm on 31
'99 Xj, Stock on 30"
'86 Monte Carlo 357 stroker. 450hp.

They won't fit without the proper backspaced wheels or wheel spacers and a lift.

I ran 33x12.50/15's on my 97 tj with no lift for about a week. Definitely no offroading and go slow over speedbumps. Backing up at full lock to the left would rub.
