Quick Tire question

Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum. I just recently bout an 07 Wrangler X. I had two quick questions. I've heard that lift kits will void the warranty. Is this true? Also, what is the best setup, Tires and Wheels, to put on the stock suspension. I would like to go as big as possible without encountering rubbing. Thanks, and sorry if these are repeat questions.

32's fit good, those come on the stock rubi.

If you put a spacer lift on it and retain the factory control arms i dont believe you will run into any warranty problems. Keep in mind a dealer cannot void your warranty as a whole, just the parts that are directly effected by the aftermarket parts, also the new parts obviously wouldnt be covered.

My brother might have a set of factory rubi wheels and tires (32") for sale from an 07 with about 4k on them. If your interested send me a pm and I can talk to him.

What would be the best tire width, and wheel backspacing to use with the stock suspension?
Thanks for the help.

Jeep Warranties do not get voided, they may just refuse to pay for certain repairs if they can prove that the mod caused the breakage. Talk to the service manager at your dealership if you have any concerns, since this is the person that will be making the call.

Check with your dealership first

There's a guy on another forum that bought his JK 4door jeep modified (lift/tires/etc) from the dealership in FL,something broke but not from off-roading and they refuse to fix it.

Then he needs to find himself a different dealership to go to. If the dealership installed the lift and tires, there is no reason in the world that they shouldn't be responsible for the fix. I almost guarantee that there is something else to that story that we aren't getting. Like an urban legend.

When I was reading it....I was scratching my head too but he posted up the Off-Road stuff that was next to the MSRP paperwork that they stick on the window of new vehicles.

The dealership built up a "Special Off-Road" JK and now they refuse to fix it,he stated he went through Daimer-Chrysler's claim department and they agreed with the dealership and refused to fix the JK also.You can read his post at JK-Project forums.

Yeah I'm just saying that he is leaving something out. There is no way that a dealership can refuse to fix something that they sold. It wouldn't take much of a lawyer to get them into a lot of hot water if they did. That's why I'm saying that he isn't giving everyone ALL of the info.

I'll check with my dealer and see what they say, but for now I probably won't lift it. So what would be the best tire width, size, and wheel backspacing to use with the stock suspension
