315/70 17's

Anyone running 315/70 17's? If so, what lift and backspacing are you running? Pics if able would be very helpful. I am thinking putting these on my JKU and was just inquiring any comments or concerns.


Thanks in advance.

I have these tires and use a 17" rim with 4.5" backspace. My lift is 4" and if i disconnect my sway bar i still have no rubbing.

I am only thinking of going with a 2.5 to 3" lift due to I don't think I will be able to ship my Jeep back to the states if I go over. Do I need to go with a larger lift with this size of tire?

2.5" lift, 17x9" wheels with 5" bs (I think technically it is -12mm offset, but I always mix up neg and positive offset). Wheel width makes a difference regarding bs and offset. Bushwacker flat flares. 315/70/17 KL71's....

^^Very nice. I am definately goin with the tires, teraflex 2.5" lift and XD Series Crank matte black wheels. I think that will make my Tan Oscar Mike JKU look sick.
