Question on 31-33\" tires
Hey everyone. Well I got the old tax return today, and decided to blow every penny of it on the YJ. My father had suggested that I pay off some of my student loan with it - but he relented. I think he's getting the idea.
The first thing i did was order the rough country 3.5" lift. I've heard some not-so-great things about it here on the board, but upon talking to a couple of local guys, including one who's done several frame-up restos & wheels almost every day, I decided I was willing to live with the more punishing street ride that I've heard it offers. I know I could spend $300 more and get a skyjacker, but, well, that's $300, and that's my budget for tires.
Anyways, on to the real question - can I run 31, 32 or 33 inch tires w/my stock wheels? i've got 255-70r-15's on there right now... Is it going to be a huge problem fitting the larger tires on my present rims? If so, can someone give me a good source for just plain, black steel wheels. I don't want any glitzy crap. Just the most durable, plain jane black wheel that I can get for not that much loot.
