You will probably have to trim your fenders if you're using wheel spacers on the front with 31" tires on stock rims because you'll end up with 4.5" backspacing. If you trim your fenders you could probably fit a 32x11x15 tire on stock rims but it will require aggressive trimming and there's no guarantee you still won't rub. My 265/70/17's are very close to 32x11x15's.

There are a few people who have also been able to fit 33x10.5x15's with the setup you're planning. Look up Blaz's build. His is a 2 door, but it's esentially the same process for the 2 door and 4 door.

33's can be done only if you're willing to do some trimming

here's Blaz's build thread.

I decided to just go with 31 inch tires and a 2.5 inch suspension lift from rough country 31's will work right?
