Just put them on. I just went on ahead and put two washers on each side. It took me 15 seconds. The bolt is easily accessible with the wheel on. Directions are exact. Thanks for the link Hilldweller. I probably would have been good with just one washer, but I hate doing stuff over again. lol. NO MORE RUB!

PS. the fix cost me $.52. Yes Fifty-Two Cents. This site is awesome!

You probally feeling the switch from a 17 inch rim to a 18. The bigger the rim the less cushion you have

Am I missing something here? Went from 17 to 18. Look like the same rims.

So you had 18 inch rims all along? The way the thread reads and the chart that was posted it makes it seem you went from 17 to 18 inch. That was what my question was. So you just went from an 18 inch tire to a more aggressive 18 inch tire? Am I correct on this? Or is there someway to fit an 18 inch on 17 rim which I have never heard of?

These are the wheels that came on the truck. I assume the original owner swapped to get teh Sahara wheels. The earlier comparison was between two different wheel sizes but the purpose was the tire comparison.

Just put 31/10.5/15 Dura Tracs in my 02 TJ stock everything. Rubbing on left side at full left turn lock. Know the washer fix is less than a buck and takes 30 seconds, but some nice new wheels with less back spacing would really look good. My stock wheels are still in great shape though. Looking at doing a 2 inch BB after the new year. Building up a jeep is like eating circus peanuts, you can't stop!!!
