Max tire without rub

New to the forum, tried researching but didn't see a definitive answer. Adding a 3" Rough Country lift and wanting to go with a 15x8 rim. The door sticker has a different size but read 15x8 works also. Sometimes I see a 31" will fit but can rub, is that accurate? If it is what would be the size that would fit without rubbing at all? Going to be a daily driver but use on a farm occasionally. Also recommendations would be great for a tire. Thanks!

What backspacing are you going with on the 15x8s? Are you trimming your fenders at all?

If the XJ will be mostly used on the road and only sometimes around the farm you should be looking at all terrains, maybe something like the Cooper ATW.

Forgot to add some other details, it's a 2001 Sport with Bushwacker Flares so the fenders were trimmed for the installation of the flares. The 15x8 rims I was looking at has backspacing of 4, not sure that is going to help push them out anymore to cover the about 4 to 5 inches the flares has, any ideas?

Yes, 4" backspacing will push them out further. Stock XJ wheels are mostly 15x7 with 5.25" backspacing.

I have never owned bushwackers, but based on what I have seen from other XJs that are trimmed for them, you should have no problems running 31x10.5 tires with a 3" lift. Just make sure that you check your fitment and bumpstop appropriately once it's all together. You don't want a sharp edge to slice up a brand new tire
