Unhappy need help with my 2014 unlimited sport

The most typical suggestion I have seen is 4.5" of backspacing or less for a tire wider than stock.

Do a search on tire size. There are a number of good threads that talk about maximum tire size per wheel, Jeep, etc. Plenty of info here if you look.

Man I have been real real tempted to get a set of humvee take off rims and tires and then buy a set of hub adapters. You could end up with 5, 37x12.5s for less than 1000.00 that way.
