Stockers are 6in backspace, so you are an inch further out on the inside edge and should clear everything, but of course it depends what tyres you are planning to stick on too.

For example, these are 9in wide, so inch and a half wider than stock and the inside edge of the rim is already an inch further out, so the outer edge is 2.5inches further out. This puts the centre of the rim inch and three quarter further out than stock. So 3.5in wider tyres will will still be an inch further away from the suspension than the stock setup.

However, with a larger diameter tyre you will need all of this extra space to clear unless you extend the bumpstops, since as the tyre goes up and on an angle the inner top edge will hit.


Does that make sense??

Call Jaime at Jeep Wrangler Accessories such as Jeep tops, winches, fender flares from manufactures such as BesTop, Outland and Smittybilt with that price and he'll beat it... Fast shipping and wonderful customer service. I love those guys! Got our Addicts from him and some other stuff and I'll be a loyal customer forever...

I'm sticking with the 32's that came with my COD for now. I did purchase the 1.5 spacers should i try to cancel or is there a possibility that i would still need them? That price wasnt the in cart price. And i saved about 300 bucks on shipping since i'm picking up from the store.

Stock wheels are 6.25 backspace. Since the stocks are also 17x8 and the new wheels are 17x9 you also gain .5" from center offset. So you are basically gaining 1.75" backspace with the wheels you listed.

You guys must get different wheels to us down here. Our stock wheels are the 17 x 7.5in alloys with 6in backspace (+45mm offset). We only have the one size available in either painted "Sparkle Silver" or machined face on the Rubicon.

We must because they are 17x8's here or at least that's what my build sheet says and the Jeep build page. But then too you get a diesel so I guess we are still not even lol.

From Build sheet

WFFP 17X8.0 Aluminum Wheels

But since yours is 7.5 then your 6" bs works out the same in the end to our 6.25" bs (your same size tires will hang over the wheel .25" further on each side.
