I have a 99 jeep cherokee and recently installed the RE 2" budget boost. I just bought the pro comp series 97 wheels (15x8 5 on 4.5) and I'm in the process of trying to get tires.

I was looking at the bf goodrich m/t. would the 31" fit with my setup, I wouldnt mind trimming a little bit, i just wanna know if those would be too big. worse comes to worse i'll go with the 30s.

I run 30x9.5 MT's and if I was to go with 31's I would have to trim some. I run a 2" lift on a 91...

My 2000 XJ is on 3 inches of lift and sits on 31s with more than enough room tor flexing. I'd think that 31s should fit on yours but its going to be a pretty tight fit.

As far as tires go If you want something for general off-raod use I'd say the Mickey Thompson MTX or MTZ are good options, if you want something for intense trails and things of that sort I think Michey Thompson Baja Claws are the way to go.

That sounds about right..After the new motor I am putting a 3.5 RE lift in and plan on buying some nice 31" tires but likely won't be MT's...
