Wheel help

Hi,

I just bought new tirs and wheels for my 2013 JK. The tires are Nitto Tera grapper 304x 60x18. The wheels are 10 x 18. Im not shore of the back set. I have a call into the shop I brought them from. My problem is the tire sticks outside of my fender by 2 1/2 inches. I don't want to change the fender. CAN ANY ONE HELP WITH WHAT SIZE WHEEL AND THE BACK SET THAT I CAN GET TO TUCK MY WHEELS UNDER THE STOCK FLAIRS

THANKS

305/60/18 tires

18x10 wheels

That's an odd tire choice for our jk's but ur gonna need larger fenders or change out the wheel. Spacers will not help as they will stick it out more.

4.5 backspacing or less in wheels.

wheels with around 5" of backspacing and no more than 9" of width will get you back inside the fenders again.

I would like to get a little bit outside of the flares. Right now the jeep is on no lift and has the stock 2013 Sahara rims. I plan to change this in the future. What tires do you recommend?

Go back to the shop and have him slap on a fee differant tires on your rig. See which size fits your needs and get those.
