Introducing myself

I purchased my 2010 sport on October 26, and I've been lurking since. Great information on this site. I decided to spend a few duckies, and was helped along on the decision making of my tires by y'all! I put Daystar 2 inch leveling spacers in the front, and 285/70/17 Duratracs on. Made a huge difference! Rear end sits too low now tho, should have went with the Tereflex leveling kit with the rear 1 inch spacer. Thanks for all the information I've been able to search, and here are some pics. Next duckies to be spent on boosting the rear, some wheel spacers, and maybe a stereo upgrade. Thanks!

70 spacing fits on a 17" wheel? hmm....didn't know that was ok. Can other chime in on this? I thought it needed to be 75R17 for those to work on that wheel.

^ those are 32.8 "essentially 33s" but my question was the width on them. I thought you needed a 75 on a 17" wheel not 70?

You can use 70's with no problems. 265/70 and 275/70 but if you use 285/70 it will be fine on road but off road you will probably rub

I do have a rub on full right turn. No off roading though. Gave that up years back! The Jeep sits in my garage and gets driven on the weekends for fun. After somemore site searching today, I will prob go with the washers on the steering stops over the wheel spacers, or new wheels. I like the look of the stock wheels. Thanks for all the welcomes!
