Hi Need A Quiestion In My Wranlger!

Hi , Im New In The forum And if been reading and think you can help.

I have a wrangler x 2008 and my dad without knowing bought me some tires , 285 - 75, 16 at first i noticed that at full steering it hits a bar down there. then i bought some 8" spacers and everithing is ok but i feel something in my hands when im driving like some vibration when i steer a little bit going at 30 mph, i dont know if thats normal so i dont know what should i do.

Welcome to the forum!

Clarify one thing here first: Did I read that right that you put 8" (inch) spacers on it?

275 is the widest that will fit without spacers or different wheels.
Sounds like something is wonky; go to a tire shop and let them check. Could be balance, could be the spacers are installed wrong. Could be cheap unbalanced spacers...

Could be problems stated above, or you might want to get wider spacers or wheels with more backspacing; and maybe even throw a budget boost on it and begin the inevitable process of wallet shrinking.

Either one will fit but the one that suits you depends on what came stock on your Jeep.
The outer diameters will be different and skew your odometer & speedometer.
Use this site to calculate tire sizes; plug in your OE size and the sizes of your option. You might want to recalibrate after new tires...

Tento, there are too many things that it might be for us to guess.
My advice is to look at the quick/cheap/easy things first and then move on to the exotic.
Check the wheels for balance, the steering damper for excess play, the wheel bearings, various bushings, driveline lash, rotors, drifeshafts, etc.
I had a company car once with an annoying shimmy and it turned out to be a badly balanced driveshaft....
