BigSmooth What about any electrical concerns with tires wider than stock. I have asked my local dealer and they say wider tires are not the issue (i have stock 18 inch rims with 1.5 inch spacers) its the ABS, tire pressure sensors, etc that could get damaged

thanks

this is great info, I've been shopping tires and I'm still between stock wheels or oversized wheels

Number8 Love it. The tires are very well proportioned.

daving i just made my purchase based on alot of great advice on here, and i went with the 285/75/16 Duratrac with ProComp 7069 series wheels which have 4" BS. they look great, no rubbing, exactly the look i was hoping for, i had 17" wheels and like the look of more rubber. they do stick out a bit further that i hope, but i realize that's due to the 4" BS. (my state frowns upon tires that stick out from the fender) QUESTION: did i overlook any possible issues getting the 4" BS, other than the possible police pull over? I don't feel like 1/2" would make that big of a difference.

I was going to go this route but wanted to keep the Willys wheels so I had to sacrifice and get the 1.5" spacers to run the same tire.

What do u guys think?
Well my 285/7017R's rubbed so take that for what it's worth. If you get new wheels with better backspacing they will fit. But if you flexed even slightly you will rub the fenders and possibly other stuff. You can do a 2- 2.5''lift or cut the fender to stop the rub. If you had 4.5'' backspacing on your wheels to allow you to go full lock on the wheel and just city drove it they will fit though.

4.5 bs should be perfect.

Stock are around 6.75 I believe? I put 285/70R17 on the stock 17'' Rubi wheels and it rubbed at full turn but only at full lock. I installed 1.5'' spacers and all is well now.

Before spacers.

I'm very open to other advice anyone can give with their personal experience in regards to pro cons of other wheel tire sizes. I really don't care to get the biggest badass rig but just want a solid looking stance. Prefer 16 or 17" wheels.

chezwatts Laughing at the turn on this thread. When I bought my daughter her JK-X in 2007 I packaged it for offroad (thought I would get it back ). Came in couple weeks later with 20's on them. Good for a chuckle to see a brick on highboys.

Then she started dating a mudder, it went into the shop and came out with under armor and 35" on 16" steel.

Both are impractical as hell, her car her choice.

1quick1 Have some thick skin peeps. It's just the webs. I post on forums that require this.

20's on a Jeep are stupid but I don't say anything. Who needs the mommy Mod police swooping in? If so I'll be banned in a week.

+1 To each their own. This site would pretty damn boring if everyone here built their jeeps the exact same way. I like seeing the differences in everyone's taste

Not really interested in your thoughts anymore. I put them on and I like them. So blah blah blah

RockNRobyn99 Thanks for the info here! Really helped a lot! Got my Ballistic 20's with Cooper Zeon LTZ 305 55 20 & love them. Need to add level kit still. Didn't have to add any spacers or anything. Only hear a slight rub when in reverse and turn the wheel all the way. Attachment 1368441 Attachment 1368449

Based on the first pages of this thread, I doubt you'll fit without rubbing both the height and width.

However, since you already have the tires and wheels, why not bolt them on and see how they fit?

They are real close so i think a Body lift would do it maybe ?

Iam not going to be installing a bumper or armour so I am thining a body lift is the way to go to save money thoughts ?
