Great to hear, I should have wheels in the next few weeks so it definitely isn't permanent. Thanks

Called 4wheelparts to schedule an appointment and they said the tires would rub without spacers

My 285/70/17s rubbed without spacers and are over an inch thinner. That sounds correct if you're running stock wheels. I think lee was suggesting spacers. I wouldn't adjust steering stops if you plan on offroading. I'd want the tightest turning radius.

My turn . I am a girl that has never even paid attention to tires ever until I got my 2010 Wrangler sport 3 months ago so be gentle. Had no idea what I was getting myself into. Ok, I have stock 17s -255/75R17. It will soon be time for new tires and I am looking at Cooper Discoverer AT3 in P285/70R17. According to the Cooper website, the approved rim width is 7.5-9.5. Tire width is 11.5. overall diameter is 32.76. Will this fit on my stock rim with no rub? Must add that I will not be off roading in any way. I am also considering adding the Teraflex leveling kit. One local tire store I called said it will not fit and another said it would. I have learned so much on this site-I know I will get a correct answer here. Thank you for answering this ? for the millionth time

Another question. My end goal is to trade the stock BFG's that come on my Rubicon for a bigger tire. I want to do it as soon as the jeep gets here, so the trade in tires are as close to new as I can get. I want to have the lift installed at a place that has done them before, so it may be a couple of weeks before I can get the jeep in. If I buy wheel spacers, can I put 315 70 17 Nittro Trail Grapplers on before the lift. I would only be driving on pavement/road for a couple of weeks until I could get the jeep to another town to install the lift. Just wondering, thanks.

295 70/17r Nitto Trails on XD Addicts with 4.57" backspace

Brand new to the forum and finally swapping out tires and rims. My local tire shop says I can fit these 295 70/17r Nitto Trails on XD Addicts with 4.57" backspace on my 2010 Sahara Unlimited. I know this will rub off road but can I get away with this on road as a 99.9% daily driver without rubbing?

Is anyone running this set up without lift/spacers?

Thank you.

See my post a couple above...You'll be fine on height, the problem is width. You can try the tires out first but you'll probably need spacers or wheels with correct backspacing.

Thanks Lee. So it sounds like on road (minus any of these car swallowing pot holes we have around here or speed bumps), I should be okay?

most likely. if you need a little bit of clearance there are tons of ways to get an inch or two higher on the cheap

Thanks for the responses. I'll see how it goes and worse case, I'll add a leveling kit down the line.

16x8 rim 3.75 BS... Will 315/75/16 fit without rubbing? Or will I be better off with a skinnier tire? Lift will come about a month after. Thanks!

stock. that much backspacing it will sit wide and youll need to chop your fenders or lift at least 2.5 inches

I also will soon be putting some pro comps 89 series 17X9 4.25 BS on 35x12.5x17 on my JKU. But that would be after installing RubiconExpress 2.5" lift kit mono tubes included. Am i good to go? I wont be hardcore off roading just some mudding and hills here and there mild flexs not really alot of full flexs.. For the time being i will also leave the stock fenders & stock front and rear bumper on the JKU.

Wondering will this rub?

Not to be too harsh, but you're the 980th post in this thread. Do you think this might have been covered already? Have you read the first page?

maybe his jeep is special, not at all like the other jk/jku 2007-2014 ones produced lol.

I have heard different color JK/jku's have different tire fitment issues. Rumor has it white jeeps can fit bigger tires with no other changes then say red ones.

For people starting out and who have the 16" steelies, one good option is to see someone with an upgraded model and see if they're selling their stock tires. I just swapped out some Sahara wheels and tires from someone here that upgraded and I couldn't be happier. I just need to take the "SPORT" sticker off the side now! Any advice on that?

Took your advice and ordered some rugged ridge spacers, got em mounted and balanced Friday with no issues or rubbing. Just need to get the ecu programmed.

During swap comparison


After. Just need to touch up the plasti dip.

Hi guys, here's my question.... Just bought a 2014 2-door JK Willys Edition, comes with 255/75R17 on 17x7.5" wheels. Ordering a AEV 2.5 lift w/steering correction kit an want 315/70R17. Looking at ATX ARTILLERY 17x9" wheels with 4.5" spacing. Also already got a Superchip Flashcal for reprograming.

Would this be the better tire/wheel combo or can this tire "fit" the OEM 17x7.5" wheel and a "spacer" to fit the vehicle correctly?

Goodyear recommended rim width for this tire is 8.5~10", this is why i'm planning to go with the ATX wheel, but I've been reading many have placed larger tires both in height and width on 7.5" wide rims.... Choices, choices..... Getting ready to order my tire/wheel package set of 5 with TPMS, expensive! Looking forward for the great advice this forum provides!

Looks much better! If you can afford the Superchips Flashpaq go for that to reprogram since it offers additional tunes and features. If not, the Flashcal or AEV will do the basics at half the cost.

Heat gun or blow dryer first and pull slowly. Use Goo Gone sticker remover for residue.

3.5" X factor kit
18" spyderlocks

325/65-18 ok to run? Anything that I'll need to do to run a 325? It's the closest to a 35" I can find in the duratracs that aren't mud tires (34.8 on good years site). This isn't gonna look goofy with a 3.5" lift right?

Sorry not 100" sure about backspacing specs for 18" spyders

I've been reading this thread for a few hours now. (It's been a slow night at work.) From what I've been able to tell after looking at all the numbers is that there are a lot of numbers. What tires is your brother running? I've got a 2013 JK currently with stock 17's. It's my DD (40 miles from home to work) but I do try to take it off road when I can. Mostly trail riding, mud riding when it's raining. Not a lot of rock crawling. I don't have a problem with getting spacers (although your brother's setup doesn't seem like it needs them) but I'm trying to avoid lifting it for now. I'm also not too concerned with how far they might stick out. The last time I went out on the trail in the rain, I was able to get up most of the muddy hills on the stock tires. Had to be helped up one of them. So I'm looking for something a little more aggressive and capable than stock.
