Lifted TJ's w/Canyon Wheels - Let's see'em!

I'm thinking of replacing my 15X7 Aluminum wheels with a set of factory 15X8 Canyon wheels. Looking for some pics of lifted rigs with say 31's and larger tires. Thanks for taking the time to post.

The only ones you'll find will be using spacers or on 31x10.5's... Just sayin'. Took off my canyons when I added my lift and 33's.

I'm starting to get a little nervous. Do you think they're gonna rub? I mocked one up with the tire and it already looks a little close. I'm putting my 32X11.50's if it works. Now I'm second guessing myself.

Yes, it'll likely rub, unless you put on spacers. If it only rubs in the front you can adjust the steering stops with a washer or two to prevent it. Be mindful of the rear spring perches, they'll eat your tires for breakfast if they are rubbing there....

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell, for the record. My attempt at mounting my 32x11.50's did not work out at all. I wish I would've started with the rear as I thought the fronts would be the issue. We mounted up one Canyon wheel and tried it on the front. No rubbing towards the LCA. Turned wheel the other way and it barely rubbed the sway arm link. No problem, we shimmed the steering bump stops and the front looked good. We then moved the Canyon w/32 to the rear and the project came to a screeching halt. It rubbed the spring perch like mad. So, my current wheels are staying on my rig, and the Canyons are headed for my Daughter's boyfriend's XJ. Remind me next time to do a little research before driving some distance to pick-up some Canyons. A "thank you" to everyone in this thread that took the time to post.

Gosh, too bad no one mentioned that they'd probably rub the spring perches in the back.....
