Icon3 31" Jeep wheels on my 92 Ranger? Is it a good idea?

I have a 92 Ranger and I really cleaned everything up and got everything mechanically and physically looking great on it, i got a new camper shell and put carpet in it and shelving in the bed and put the black carbon-fiber stripes on it, the interior looks almost new.... I put a lot of work into this truck,i love that its a classic 92. but the one thing I don't like is how small the little tires and rims are that come with it. I wanted to get the same size stock wheels that 4Runners have and jeeps have. I found a set of Jeep tires and rims for $100 and I'm wondering if it's a good idea? If it will clear the truck while? Do you think it will look good? And make it drive better? They're 31 in tires and my Ranger tires are only 25 in. Im really excited about it. These are the wheels im buying and my truck:

Nice looking truck! Some things to consider about larger wheels and tires.
!. Your speedometer will be inaccurate. It will read slower than what you are traveling.
2. You need to consider the gearing in your rear end. Tire size, trans and rear end are all relative.
3. Larger wheels and tires can be hard on the brake system unless you already have the larger, heavy duty set up.

Keep up the good work!

thank you for the advice, I decided not to get big wheels, I don't want them anymor. The only problem is I don't have the spare now. Oh well
