Ok, i've searched and can't find an answer although i'm sure its on here somewhere. Anyways, I am running 31/10/15 on my 98 non lifted TJ with stock wheels. They rub the frame at full cock and I want to upgrade my wheels. I'd like 17s with 265/70/17 tires. They measure between 31 and 31.5 depending on the tires so they are about the same size I have. Now these are the wheels im looking at buying JEEP WRANGLER RANGER EXPLORER 17" WHEELS RIMS MAMBA M3 - eBay (item 290532526366 end time Feb-15-11 23:25:51 PST)= or these JEEP WRANGLER RANGER EXPLORER 17" WHEELS RIMS MAMBA M1 - eBay (item 290532610865 end time Feb-16-11 06:38:31 PST)= My thing is that I don't care if they stick out a lil bit, but I don't want them to rub on the frame. Will these rub or is the offset big enough? Any help would be great!!!

They should be ok. If there's any rubbing you can adjust the steering stops with a washer or two. The 20mm offset is about 7/10ths of an inch so the bs is just under 5" (if my brain is working tonight).
