So I was thinking if I got 4 inch backspaced wheels with these 10 inch wide tires they might stick out alittle and I won't lose any mpg. Will it look silly with a narrow tire sticking out? Is 4 inch bs enough?
Might take some work but if you have time, play with your current tires... jack up one side of your jeep, set it on jacks, take off your tires and rims measure your current bs and stand up your current tires out (on their own) what ever the difference is between the stock rims and what the new rims are. That way you can visually decide for yourself. It may look a little funky I don't know though...
