Jerry Bransford You can run a 31x10.50 tire on even a factory wheel with 5.25" to 5.5" of back spacing if you simply adjust the steering bolt stops by installing a washer. With any amount of backspacing under that, you wouldn't need to adjust the steering bolt stop. 4.5" would be optimal, 3.75" would work but position the tire further out than is necessary.

PStov98TJ That would work for a 10.50 or a 12.50 tire. But it will stick the tires out farther. Just be sure of your local laws. 3.75 bs would prevent any rubbing on the front lca's with a 12.50 tire especially if you don't have an adjustable track bar to recenter the axle after a lift. But for a 10.50 tire 4.25 would be better.

tjwood29 Would 3.75 work?

PStov98TJ X2. But go with 4" if you ever think you'll run a 12.50

4"-4.5" would work nicely
