31's on explorer

So I came across a set of 4 of 31/10.5/15 and I was thinking about putting them on my explorer. But here is my question it is stock (no lift) do you guys think they will work

They will clear but on a full lock turn they will rub, also if it is a sport package they might rub more because of the larger factory flairs. Also your speedo will be off because of the larger tire.

I had a 96 Explorer Sport, best SUV I ever owned. 4.0,5 Speed
She had 220k on her when she gave up the ghost too rust.

The tires might rub a bit.

They may rub a little on a full turn but it's usually the inside and that can be cut slightly to fit them. I had 33's on my stock wrangler no problem.

Thanks guys. I was on another site and a guy told me that he has them on his but he had to trim his bumper a tad. But I think I'm going to go for it
