Default 31x11.5r16 SS LTF on 3" WJ fit?

Want to order these but also want to make sure they will fit

Super Swamper LTB 31x11.5R16's

The rims I am going with are a 16x8 5x5 with 5" back spacing

I can order 16x8 rims with 4", 4.25 or 4.5" backspacing.

ANy help is appreciated, the lift is IRO 3" that came with new springs, shocks, rear sway bar disconnects and front track bar.

This rig will strictly be offroad trailer, no streets.

Want the most aggressive tire possible without cutting metal on the jeep. THe terrain will mostly be mud and dirt roads

new setup is the 31x11.5r16 SS LTB on 16x8 with 5" BS.

I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure you will rub the lower control arms, inner fender wells, and probably a couple other places. ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON'T WANT TO CUT METAL ON THE JEEP. I'm running 265/75/16 on a 2.5 IRO lift and i still rub sometimes. My wheels are American Racing "Ledge" 16x8 wheels with "0" offset and 4 inches of back spacing. Cut plenty of plastic, and that's what I rub on. No rub on the LCA's. I think you're going to be too wide, jmho.

I havent done the size comparison between that and my tires (conversion) but I'm running stock wheels with inch and a half spacers..3 inch lift, trimmed inner wheel wells in front bumper ( plastic) and 265/70R16 tires.

Rears hit the bumper but only due to the fact that the person that installed the lift didn't center the rear in the wheel opening

Did you ever find out about the tire thing? I'm actually going up two more inches with pucks on the 2nd version of my YETI, (first one has some fubar rot issues) got a second white, lifted wj so I'm going to be ripping the old one apart and putting all the good stuff into the new one.
