alright guys i have an update. i was looking through the TJ forum and after doing some research, i think i want to go with a Skyjacker 2" BB and for tire size 285/75/R16s (thanx Simple Scout). This is a clean setup i like. I'm really new to this stuff. What is the stock rim size on a '00 TJ sport? Would the 285/75 tire fit on stock rim? i really don't want to buy a tire and rim set.... thanx guys for any input
yes spacers do that.. Its like getting rims with lower backspacing (the lower #" the backspacing the more the wheels stick out) Stocks are 5.5" so 4.5 or 4.0 BS should be perfect.. Spacers come around minimum of 1" (that i've seen) so moving the wheels out a bit it will put the wheels further out to prevent rubbing while turning
perfect!! thanx for the tip! so i think i'm set then, i believe the package deal i want is: 2" BB, 285/75 tires, and 1" spacers. i just got my insurance check for my totaled car, so after the loan payoff and a couple of bills, ill have about 1000 bucks left. i think ill invest in those for the summer! pics will be followed shortly after lol
i just found out from a friend that spacers are not preferred due to chances of the spacers coming loose, locking up, and twisting axles. He said there fine for back roads, but as far as highways, he said my chances are greater.
