do you know if the lug pattern is correct for your Jeep? Also what model wrangler do you have?

I think you'll run into clearance issues unless you install some large bumpstops. If you install a 1.25" body lift you'll be better off off-road!

Here is what mine looks like with 2.5" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift and 33s

i didnt know there was a tread pattern that is right or wrong. and the pattern is 5 on 4.5. well they are brand new with some aluminum polished wheels for 900$. but i think i will have to pass on them, i think i want to stick with 31's because of the amount of driving and i think i want to get some dridgestone dueller at revo2 from costco and get the soft 8's. thats my ideal setup so i might as well get what i want and be happy i think. thanks for the answers though guys.
