I've been looking all over trying to figure out the correct wheel & tire package and have come to no clear conclusion.

I am looking to put a 31x10.50 on some aftermarket wheels and mount on my 2002 Wrangler which is all stock.
Does anyone know if this will fit?
I am almost never offroad, and use it for strictly daily driving.

My questions are:
Will these tires fit under the flares?
Will they rub, and if they will, will it be minimal?
What size wheel, 15x7 or 15x8?
What should the correct backspacing be with the appropriate size wheel?

I was looking into the Goodyear or Mickey Thompson radials mounted on some Mickey Thompson Classic II or American Racing Baja/AR 23 wheels.



I would really appreciate any quick responses, as I look to order wheels & tires immediatly.

Thanks in advance from a Jeep rookie!

What size rim? 15x7 or 15x8?
You don't have a lift?

Thanks!

If it were a DD that NEVER went off-road, you could fit 33s on at stock ride height. But you would need to watch pulling into places with the dip in the concrete (like gas stations or any place that is surrounded by sidewalk)
