Need more info.. Have you bought the kit? If so which one? As for tires. are you keeping stock rims, or getting after market?

What we are trying to find out is, what you have for engine, and gears in your differentials. With the four inch lift, you can run 33" tires with good clearance. That is probably the largest tire that you will want to put on there. If you want to go with 12.5" wide tires, you can do it with 8" rims that are back spaced enough to give you clearance for turning lock, to lock. If you are going to keep it on the street most of the time, I would recommend going with 10" rims to get better wear on your tires. You will need 10" rims that are back spaced 3.75 inches. Also, with these size tires, your going to experience loss in power. So at this point you need to consider changing the gears in your diffs. There are other issues that will come about as well. But this is a start.

questions are good. that's why we're here. if you're running the 4.0, going to 33's isn't going to be REALLY awful for power loss, but it WILL be noticeable. and as far as rims, when they are listed on the site, they should be listed as something like 15x8 or 15x10, which is 15'' tall by 8'' wide. so you could get 15x8 rims and put 33x12.50x15 tires on them(tire height x tire width x rim height). make sense? and as bluvikng said, the tires you're getting and where you drive will help make the decision of a 10'' wide or 8'' wide rim.

Hopefully you do not plan on going into water period
that is the worse
and once u start replacing parts (like me) u will relize that mud is not that either
try to avoid that if u can... jeeps are not water proof

I didn't have mine that deep at all... and i am replacing a motor
just one of those freak things
and i have 4" of lift and 33"s and well yeah

good luck on your progress and keep on jeepn

if you ran into a puddle hard, throwing water everywhere, and your jeep stalled out.....then yeah, you probly sucked water into the engine. and water, unlike air, doesn't compress. and engines don't like that at all! and there are also lots of sensors and such in your engine bay that don't like H2O either.

i agree on what the other guys said but just to let you know the wider the rim...the more it sticks out past the fender...(a
15x10 will stick out more than a 15x8)
