Looks good from the side, how is it head on? How much more do they protrude from the wheel wells?

This is the best photo's I have with the 8'' and 10''
I know their to close and it's hard to tell.
Remember mine is a Sahara which has a little wider
flares than stock.

Ahhh, wider flares do make a difference! Make sure you keep those nice alloys waxed up to help with the crud on them.... And I highly recommend Mothers Billet polish, to shine them up...

What do you think???
I am in LOVE with the new wheels. That is exactly what I want to put on my YJ. So the rims are 15x10 Pacer brand alloy's. What brand/size tires are you running? Also, will I be able to have these wheels/tires put on my Jeep as is, or will I need to have a suspension or body lift done prior? If so, how much?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Awesome JEEP there!

Thanks,
The tires or Yokahama Geolander MT and are 35/12.50/15 on 15x10 Pacer wheels. I did tape off and paint the holes black. You would need a 4 '' lift and maybe a small body lift to run 35's. I ran 33's with 2'' suspension lift and 2'' coil spring spacer before I got my 4" and 3'' body lift
