I'm in the process of buying a 2011 Rubicon and will be swapping out the stock wheels and tires and upgrading to bigger ones. Using spacers aren't an option in the State of Maine, so I want to make sure the setup I'm considering will actually work.
I'm hoping to go with 35x12.5R17 Nitto Trail Grappler N/Ts, which are 34.84" in diameter and 13.19" in width (not the standard 12.5".) The 17" wheels I'll be using have a 4.75" BS. I'll also be adding a 3.5" suspension lift.
I know it's going to be a tight fit, but will these tires work on wheels with a 4.75" BS without having to resort to spacers? How close will I be cutting it?
Any/all feedback appreciated. Thanks.
