Hey to all,
I'm new to the forum, and still figuring out where everything is on here.
I am sure this question has been overasked, but I want to make sure I buy the right combination.
I just bought a 98 Wrangler Sahara. I have the 2.5" coil/shock lift kit from Rough Country on the way. I may be adding the 1.25" body lift also, if it is necessary. I want to get 33x10.50R15 BFG A/T or KM2s.
What I am not sure of is the backspacing that I need. I have factory 15x7 wheels on the Jeep now, but I have read that bigger tires will hit the lower control arms when on factory wheels. If I do purchase aftermarket wheels, what backspacing would be ideal? Also, would a 15x7 or 15x8 wheel be better?
I have seen some pictures of Jeeps with the 33x10.50s that look great, but I do not know what backspacing was used. I would like for the tires to be close to flush with the outer edge of the Sahara fender flare.
Any information or pictures would be appreciated.
