Dragmod So spacers are the only way, huh?

spinlock Sway bar for starters. Those are expensive tires, why take a chance?

Dragmod I have a three inch lift and am going to run 18x9 inch wheels. Tuff T01. My only option for back spacing appears to be 5.39". I take it that I will rub but where and how bad. I don't plan on crawling any rocks so should I worry? I'm going to run MTZ 305/70R18.

spinlock Welcome to the Forum!

Congrats on the MTZs.

On stock wheels you will definitely need 1.5" spacers. If you have aftermarket rims you need to stay under 4.8" of backspacing.

You should check out the Tire Size FAQ for more details:

Dragmod What did you do? I have a three inch lift and want these wheels with Mickey Thompson MTZ 35x12.5R18 tires but I am unsure if I will need spacers or not.

I have a 2010 Unlimited Sahara totally stock.
I recently purchased Tuff All Terrain T-01 rims
Size: 18x9 with 10mm backspacing (I wish I found them in -10)

Tires I purchased are Toyo Open Country A/T II
Size: 275/70/18

I did my best on measuring the back spacing and it is 5.5 inches I believe does that sound correct?

Will this fit?????????? I am worried about the rim backspacing

Do I need a 2 inch suspension lift for this to work?
or wheel spacers?
