i agree... $1200 for the 4 today. i will have to wait and get the spare next week.

InfernoGirl Wheel spacers will stop the rub, without reducing the turning radius. They must be properly maintained for safety, and are a LOT more expensive than a couple of washers. I'd try the washers first, and after a while you'll decide you want different wheels anyway, so then you can just buy wheels with the correct backspacing for your tire size...

Thanks! Looks simple enough. Would soe wheel spacers do the same thing? I'm not sure i like the idea of reducingthe turn radius. I will try it though and see how it goes.

I'm glad i joined this forum to be able to ask questions and get real life answers from real life people! Thank you so much!

InfernoGirl You may need to add some washers to the steering stops if it rubs at full lock...

Getting new tires!

Getting the Nitto Trail Grapplers today! 285/65 r18. I have been researching and researching and researching to find a tire i like. I have seen them on other Jeeps, and love their aggresive stance. I get them installed today, will post pics soon! Do i need to get spacers if i am keeping these on the stock 18s?

I am thinking about getting the Eibach Lift Levelling kit as well.
