For anyone that was interested. 2.5" backspacing

Finally got my 35x12.50s mounted on my Procomp Series 52 rims with 2.5" BS. They actually don't stick out as much as I thought they would, which is good. I really like them.

Those look nice man! Hows the ride compare to the 33x10.5's?
I was in the same place as you, couldnt decide to go with 35 or 33.
I ended up with 33x10.5's, hoping to save weight/wear & tear/fuel mileage/gearing.

I just dropped from 35x12.5x15 mud terrains to 33x12.5x15 BFG A/T. I love the difference in ride quality, I got some power back, and the BFGs will probably last twice as long, if not longer.

I'm not sure about ride quality, since I have the jeep off the road for the winter to work on it. I blew the brake line on the D35, so I decided to just do an 8.8 swap. I'm also doing the sye and driveshaft and everything, so I won't be able to actually drive it for a little while.

Thanks Sp33dfr33k. Mines getting there. Still a project though. I'm still waiting on my 4" rear springs so I can do my SYE and axle swap. And yours would look awesome with tube fenders! They make any rig look meaner.

Thanks fanatic... I got a hold of a guy on line that's bending up a tube fender design for me (well, I sent him a pic I had photo-shopped) he's decided to sell them on his web site...

Those are close to mine, but I think I like those a little bit better. Especially since the flare goes all the way down to the rocker. Mine just goes about 3/4 of the way down.

Ohhh yeah, even with the 33x10.50s on 3.75" backspacing it splashes everywhere. My little flares don't help at all when the tires stick out this far. They're only 3" flares. I like that it throws mud and dirt everywhere. My YJ isn't supposed to be clean.

I think summit racing has the best price right now. $55/wheel. Mine are the series 52 with D windows. 15x8

Yup already looked em up. I wanted a wheel like this-

http://m.summitracing.com/parts/pcw-7069-5865

But I like the price and the 2.5" BS of the 52 style wheels.

Not to bump an old thread but I ended up going with pro comp 98 15x10s with 2.5 backspace. The 15x8s were on backorder but turns out they're discontinued. The 52s like u have aren't even available anymore. So I got the last 4 of the 98s in 15x10. I really wanted 15x8 but the 10s will work ill just go with 33x15.50 instead of 12.50

How often are you guys having to replace hub assemblies? Or are jeeps light enough they don't eat them up? If I ran those wheels on my Dodge 4x4 I would be replacing hub assemblies on a monthly basis.

I've been running them since late February on my Jeep, which is a daily driver, with no issues. Not sure how many miles though.

So they had it listed wrong on their site. Sent me 5x5s with 4.5 bs lmao....so fed up with summit racing right now. Apparently pro comp has NO 2.5bs wheels so Im going to call them directly to see if they can build Me 5 of them even if its a 8 to 10wk wait. I dont want to settle for less than 2.5bs when thats what I want

That's what I had to do. I bought the last 3 series 52 rims, and since I ordered 4, they made a complete new batch of rims. Took me 7 weeks to get them, but I know they were custom for me.

Here Gunz, 2.5" backspacing. One with no fenders, and one with 3" flares. If you need any more pics, I'll be glad to go take any you want
