31x10.5x15 is the common size
you may need wheel spacers or a rim with a 3" backspace

if you wanna go narrower use a 30x9.50x15 or lt23575r15 (29")

I would go straight to the 31, you'll wished you had later.

tire first or gearing first your choice.

gearing and lockers will get you furthere that tires and and lift.

and my suggestion is 30x9.5s with a 1.3 and your not going to do any gearing

I ran a 3.5" spring under lift with 1"lift shackle and a 29" x 10.5 x 15" tire and a backspaced rim. Tires still rubbed on the springs with steering at full lock in one direction so i wouldn't go wider than 10.5". My gearing was all left stock but i did have a rear locker, the truck went pretty much anywhere i asked it to go with this set-up. I daily drove it as well and it would do highway speeds without any problems (as long as there was no head wind). If it is just a wheeler i would suggest the same as others, 31x10.5x15 with the SPOA and a backspaced rim. Good luck with the build.

I put the 5:13's in my Sami and I sure wish I had done the t-case gears instead.

my final setup was 30x9.5's and a 4.1 tcase and 3.90's it was back to factory speed.

it will run fine with the 1.3 but the 1.6 will have a little more grunt.

http://www.lowrangeoffroad.com/index...sfer-case.html

couple of good websites to check for gearing and speed
