lunneborgc I'm not going to be doing a lot of off roading, but this should make me plenty capable. Gonna have to get some disco's too. Vibrations, that would suck, I'll cross my fingers.

that is a great set-up to start with. it'll give you a little more room for flexing, and with the TT, you'll raise one of the lowest points on your jeep up(hooray for not high-centering!!!). but with the spacers and the TT, you might get some vibes, i'm not really sure.

TJGreg i believe the moab may be 5" BS. Anyway, 10.5 will be your limit on stock wheels without adjusting your steering stops or adding wheel spacers.

265 and 285

I know folks that run the 265, 285, and 315 on the Moab Wheel.

My Friend that runs the 315 has a 4" TF Lift and has some rubbing but his big problem is keeping them balanced. You see he also drives his Rubicon as a daily driver too.

Here it is...

Sure looks good; and better than that I sold it to him!

He is also the local coordinator for the Texas Spur Jeep Jamboree.

khenderson they come with 4.75'' backspacing, i believe. and you should be ok with those tires. you might rub a little at full lock, but you can always do the washer/steering fix.

here's that link:

Stock Rubicon Wheel Size and Tire Increase

Hi Folks,

I know that the stock Rubicon wheels are 16 x 8 but does anyone know the backspacing on them? Also, the stock tire size is 245 75 16 but will a 265 75 16 fit or might a wheel spacer be needed?

Thanks,
Paul
