With the Spidertrax spacers, you can mount those tires onto your JK if you also have sufficient suspension lift height for them.

Only if you get an adapter-style spacer. The JK bolt pattern is 5X5", while your TJ runs 5X4.5"
Also, you need enough lift to clear 35's, of course Mark W.

As stated before... I'm putting these on a TJ thus the wheel ADAPTER. I already am running on 35's so clearance is no issue. I'm talking as far as backspacing goes...

Gotcha- just wanted to make sure you knew, amigo
As for backspacing, you should be good going that route. I'm a JK guy, and that would work on one of our rigs- any TJ guys know for sure? Mark W.

So that should be about 5 inches of backspacing right? Isn't a jk wheel at 6.25 inches?I guess it would be awesome to see if anyone else has done this and ran a 35. I'm about to get some powdercoat jk wheels free!

You gotta have 4" of backspace to run a 12.5 on a TJ... or less.
