|ScubaSteve01||Ok so it seems like those Mickey Thompsons might be too much backspace with stock Sahara flares. Would 4" rub on the inside?|

Your wheel and tires would stick out ¾" more (½" wider tire and about ¼" less backspacing

|ScubaSteve01||Oh and I totally forgot to mention why I posted to this forum. I'm looking at mickey thompson classics whitch are like 3.32 inch backspacing. Is that gonna take my 11.5 tread width tires too far out of my stock 4.25 inch flares?|

Ok, first post,
I am also not an expert but the set up I'm planning on running is a 2.5 inch suspension lift and 32x11.5 tires. How much back spacing would I need to avoid rubbing? I know there's a million posts about this type of thing but what I see most is posts about running 33s on a 3 or 4" inch lift. I want to lift it as little as possible as a 2.5 inch lift with the larger diameter tires will lift my rig almost 4 inches depending on how relaxed the 13 year old stock coils are.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

|wwch99tj||Yes you can but 11.5 wide tires will rub the control arms you will need wheel spacers or new wheels with less backspacing|

|gibsonn14||Ok, but can I put 11.5 wide tires on that rim or is that just too big haha, it seems crazy but I'm not an expert|

|MD4P||I'll check tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure I have 32s and I no I don't have a lift lol|

|kshaws21||It's according to your needs. I have 7" flares. The look isn't as agressive as it was with the factory flares but it is now much more functional. The day a rock came flying off of my tires and hit me in the head was the day I decided on bigger flares. Not only do the bigger flares keep out the rocks, but keeps the mud under them instead of flying everywhere. I don't like to have any more mud on the sides of my Jeep than necessary. By the way I have 32-11.50s with a 2" BB lift.|

|gibsonn14||Hey thanks, I have stock wheels and the 30X9.5R15, which I would assume means my rim is 9.5"? In that case could I put 11.5 tires on it or do I need new rims?|

Here's Dick Cepeck DC-2 wheels with 3⅝" backspacing
31-10.5-15 and sahara flares(4¼" wide)
Tires stick out about ¾"

|BLK00TJ||It'll mostly depend on the wheel backspacing. If you're running stock wheels the tire will only stick out about 1/2" more assuming yours came with 30x9.5. For 1/2", I'd probably run stock flares unless the laws don't allow it in your area. Otherwise I'd look into Sahara or Rubi flares. You may be able to find a set on CL from someone upgrading to tubes|

Fender Flare size for 32's and no lift
Hey everyone, I was wondering if there is a common size of aftermarket fender flares for 32 inch tires 10.5 wide, give or take an inch.
I saw 6 inch flares and 7 inch flares online, and I'm pretty sure the sahara flares are 41/2" so I just don't want the flares to cause the jeep to look stupid.
Any input would be great, thanks
