I've found a set of 31 x 15.50/15 Goodyear terras for sale at a reasonable price . im thinking of buying them as a novelty tire for my 2a, just something to look cool and run in soft sand for flotation. i'll probably never wheel it hard or go mudding but maybe sand type off road driving , my 2a is restored to stock . im hoping I can buy some 15 x10 white spokes and bolt them on . Looking for input . Are they too wide? gonna tear up my wheel wells ? steering issues ? anything I haven't considered ?

I ran 31 x 10.5 x 15 on my '52 M38 until this past July.  In the mud in the Black Hills in June quite a lot of mud ended on the inside of the Jeep and on my Yf and me.  The tires stick out and the mud comes off.   They steer just fine and do not contact the Jeep.  I was running 15#'s in them and I think that helped the ride.  A Pinto engine is providing the power.
No problem running them except that they sling mud and water.

I bought a set of 31x15.50 terra tires this year but haven’t got around to mounting them yet. 
Just make sure the wheels you mount them on have the correct offset to keep them from rubbing the front springs and frame rails.

I remembered I had a pic of a 2a with the terra tires on it from back in my sand drag days as a teenager in North central Texas at the TORRO race track in Irving tx.  As I recall this jeep had a Chev 302 with a 4spd and was cool jeep to see it leave the starting line. I hadn't realized it had Desert Dogs on the front guess that is a bonus for my memory. Pardon the grainy pic. Ya can only get so much out of the 110 camera from back in the mid 70s
