edit by thephantum - Keep in mind that these are "general rules of thumb" for fitting tires to a given amount of lift on XJ's. Other factors, such as wheel backspacing, fender trimming need to be considered as well.

This is a basic overview of the Lift, tire size combo question... I am not taking credit for the info. because it is a collaboration of multiple websites that I came across during my hunt for the perfect setup...

Tire Size - Amount of lift - Body Mod & Fender Trimming:

29x9.50, 235/75R15, 255/70R15
No lift needed - Some chance of rubbing under full articulation

29x10.50", 29x11.50"
No lift - Minor fender trimming will be needed
1"-2" of lift - Well experience some rubbing under full articulation and minor trimming may be needed

30x9.50"
No lift - most likely experience some rubbing (okay for street only)

30x10.50", 30x11.50",30x12.50"
2" lift - wider the tire trimming maybe needed

NOTE: The wider the tire the more trimming needed

31x9.50", 31x10.50"
2.5" lift - some trimming will be needed
3" lift - no trimming

31x12.50", 31x13.50", LT325/60R15
3"-4" lift - fender trimming will be needed
4.5"-5" lift - minor fender trimming

32x9.50, 32.10.50"
4"-4.5" lift - minor fender trimming

32x11.50", 32x12.50", 32x14.50"
4.5"-5" lift - trimming will be needed.

33x9.50", 33x10.50", 33x11.50"
5.5" lift - some trimming needed
6"-6.5" lift - no trimming

33x12.50"
5.5"-6" lift - Trimming will be needed

34x9.50"
6" lift min. - minor trimming

35x12.50"
8" lift - fender trimming will be needed
Note:
- This is with minimal lift needed
- With a combination of aftermarket flares or TJ flares / fender trimming will help to accommodate larger tires for full articulation. (This becomes a factors with mostly 32"+ tires)
