I'd stick with 31x10.5. Not as much performance decrease for your 4-banger and they aren't as tall since you aren't lifting the Jeep.

Than that's not a puddle-jumper. The 4-banger is a puddle jumper.

You'll still see better performance with the 31s and not need to lift it for the 32s.

I stand corrected on the puddle jumper. i think i will go with the 32's she says she likes the look and so do i. sides i love my little debbie a bigger tire with no lift will do the job. if i have to add a spring rubber & washers so be it.

Ah, the intricacies of the english language Smile .

As a matter of fact, there is something to be said for getting the biggest tires you can fit for snow driving. It aids both floatation and grip, the most important qualities for this. Ground clearance and articulation are secondary considerations (though not without importance). Of course, to fit any appreciably bigger tires you usually have to lift anyway. However, here in Iceland, where snow driving is usually the main reason for modifications, the approach is generally to get by with as little lift as possible. This often means cutting the bodywork considerably (reducing rear door openings is not unknown, neither is extending the wheelbase by moving the axles). The reason for this approach is that it neither raises the center of gravity nor increases driveline angles as much as just jacking the vehicle up until sits atop the tires.

Best regards,
