hey i just bought an 88 samurai and i want to put some bigger tires on it......it has a 4 inch lift. At first i was thinking about getting 29x10.5 on a 15x8 inch rim.......super swamper tsl/sx........but then i was thinking bout going alittle bit bigger to get a 31x13.5 on a 15x10 inch rim, still the super swamper sx's. but i would probabyl need to get wheel spacers and offset rims?.....would i run into many problems other then gearing if i got the 31's........any info on if this is a good idea or anyone got some addvice for a better idea will be appreciated ......thx for the help.kyle

I know a few guys that did the same thing, the 31 were fine, and I think some of them kept the stock gearing.
