    Default Gettin new tires and rims???

    Quick question on tire, rim combos.

    I have 05 TJ (no lift) and saw another posting that said 31's would be fine to fit under the jeep. I'm leaning toward getting Retreads that are 31x10.5x15. I am looking at getting steel wheels (15x8?) to go along with them and besides from the bolt pattern (5x4.5) is there anything else i should worry about e.g. backspacing?? am i getting right size??I have no clue about this thought I would ask before i was sorry.

    thanks alot

    31's will clear stock with little or no rubbing. 31 in tires can fit on your stock wheels. you dont need to worry about buying new wheels until you get bigger than 32's. anything after that would just give you the tall and skinny and have no extra footprint. backspacing and all that shouldnt be a problem with such a small tire
