Re; 3'' bb

In regards to the 3'' BB, could a person put a 2'' BB on a 99 tj and get by with 33x12.50 on 15x10 wheel ......keep in mind it is only a daily driver, back and forth to work?

Not quite sure about 12.5"s (you may need one hell of an off set or spacers), but I ran 32x11.5x15's for some time on a stock suspension and didnt have any rubbing at all. But then again all I did was daily driving and "mall crawling". I didnt even think about taking it off road at all.

Get 15x8" rims and get 3.75' backspacing or smaller. If it still rubs the inside frame, get spacers.

Now mine came this way. It's a daily driver and have done some light trails with some big dips. I have 33x12.5 with a 1" body lift and 6" Bushwhacker flares. The rear wheels just barely touch on the front of the flare. I don't know what the back spacing is. They are 15x10 American Racing Baja wheels.
