18mm offset (5.45" bs) and 315's

I want to get some 17x8.5 MB TKO wheels with a 18mm offset which if I calculated correctly is a 5.45" backspace. If I run these with 315 duratrac's would I have any rubbing with a 2.5" lift?

Thanks,

Probably. Depends on the tire width.

With the lift, height-wise you'll be fine. It's the bs that might mess you up.

Yes I was more concerned with the BS. Does anyone else run a wheel with that much BS?

Your stock bs is 6.25". For aftermarket wheels/tires, you want something in the 4.5" or less range (the smaller the #, the farther your wheels will stick out.)

Here's a handy thread that explains what you can and can't get away with on an otherwise stock JK: Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!
