distortedtj Stock rubicon wheels are 16x8 with 5''bs. Stock with 31x10.5. works fine bud.

10.5 wide tire is pretty much the limit at 5'' bs though.

mechanicforme ok cool cuz the rims are a steal at 100 bux just making sure about the 5" backspacing thing lol.

distortedtj You'll be fine on stock wheels and suspension with 31x10.5 tires.

Only rub you "may" get is on the front lower control arm which is very easily fixed by adding a washer or two to the steering stop bolt.

mechanicforme 10.5 i believe
