I am about to install new springs in my 08 Wrangler X with the factory 17x7.5 inch rims. I expect the new springs to give me about 1.5" of lift. My question is if I install 33x12.50 17 tires on the factory rims will I need wheel spacers?
You can also add a washer or 2 to the steering stops. It's a cheap and much safer alternative to wheel spacers plus it's legal in all 50 states. The only downside is that you are making your turning radius a little larger
