If you go with the soft 8's, make sure that you have 4" of backspacing to avoid rubbing. Why not just replace the worn out tires though?

my buddy runs this very setup on his 06 Rubicon... I think he added wheel spacers... give me an hour and I will be at work and talk to him.

Yea why not just keep the same tires.... 285 16's, switching to 15's is going to cost you more.

Ok. He is NOT running spacers. All stock rims on 4" lift and 285's... He does rub when at full turning....

Just adjust your turn locks on the bottom of the knuckles or just watch how far you turn.

I can tell you offroad he has no rub issues at all at full stuff up front or back. Been wheeling with him on some gnarly trails.

My LJ has stock rubicon wheels on it. I am running 35's. Before I added spacers the rear tire would rub the spring mount. That was just on the road. It would probably be worse off road.
