Need experienced wheel advice

I'm trying to figure out whether or not the wheels will fit on my stock Tj. I'm looking at Mickey thompson classic III which have -22 offset and 3.31 bs. They are 15x8. I'm gonna put MT baja claw ttc 31x10.50r15 on them. The other rim I was considering had -19 offset with 3.75 bs(pro comp). Ive read on other forums offset doesn't matter too much with jeeps but I want to make 100% sure I'm not gonna have major problems before dumping all this money in them. From what I've heard from dealers is stock spec sheet call for -9 to +25 offset but I guess im hoping to hear different. Not many good looking black rims with those specs for my budget. Thanks for your time and I hope to hear back soon.

Shouldn't be a problem. I don't know the back spacing and offset of stock rims, but 31x10.5 tires are put on stock TJ Rubicons. Mine is a sport and that's what I drove it off the lot with. At most you may have to add a washer to each side of the steering...whatchamacallit... but should be good to go.

I'm more worried about the -22 or -19 offset rubbing on control arms or something. Thanks for the reply . maybe I'll order them and stick em on and see if they rub before I mount them...Also wondering if that will put too much stress on ball joints.

TJ wheels and tires

Hello all, I have enjoyed this forum for many years and decided to jump on board.

It's been years since I owned a Jeep without a lift and I need to purchase rims and tires for the wifes jeep.

I want to purchase AR rims 15x8 with 3.75 BS and put 31/10.5x15's on them. my question is with the sahara will they rub? The current stock canyon wheels have 30/9.5/15 but she wants the look of the tires closer to the outer flares. I would like to go bigger but with the 3.75 BS I do not want to rub.

I want to keep the stock suspension and don't want to use any spacers. If anyone has any pics with tires that do not rub i would like to see them so i can choose a good size with the 3.75 BS. The jeep will see little to know off road use unless i get a hold of it.

That will work and look good, but you can fit 31s on canyon wheels. With 3.75bs your gonna be sticking out 1.75" compared to canyons. There wont be any rub on any of the hard parts but you may have abit of rub against the flares offroad.

The Canyons are pretty bad, pitting and oxidation damage. hate to go down the sand and paint road again, it never seens to last.

Either way you can run 31s on a 15x8 wheel w/ 3.75BS

4 wheel online.com just sent my wheels and tires! I ordered them yesterday and they got here this morning. Very happy with their service. I didn't even pay for overnight shipping.
