|lee indy||most likely. if you need a little bit of clearance there are tons of ways to get an inch or two higher on the cheap|

295 70/17r Nitto Trails on XD Addicts with 4.57" backspace
Brand new to the forum and finally swapping out tires and rims. My local tire shop says I can fit these 295 70/17r Nitto Trails on XD Addicts with 4.57" backspace on my 2010 Sahara Unlimited. I know this will rub off road but can I get away with this on road as a 99.9% daily driver without rubbing?
Is anyone running this set up without lift/spacers?

|birddogn||Another question. My end goal is to trade the stock BFG's that come on my Rubicon for a bigger tire. I want to do it as soon as the jeep gets here, so the trade in tires are as close to new as I can get. I want to have the lift installed at a place that has done them before, so it may be a couple of weeks before I can get the jeep in. If I buy wheel spacers, can I put 315 70 17 Nittro Trail Grapplers on before the lift. I would only be driving on pavement/road for a couple of weeks until I could get the jeep to another town to install the lift. Just wondering, thanks.|

|camogirl||My turn . I am a girl that has never even paid attention to tires ever until I got my 2010 Wrangler sport 3 months ago so be gentle. Had no idea what I was getting myself into. Ok, I have stock 17s -255/75R17. It will soon be time for new tires and I am looking at Cooper Discoverer AT3 in P285/70R17. According to the Cooper website, the approved rim width is 7.5-9.5. Tire width is 11.5. overall diameter is 32.76. Will this fit on my stock rim with no rub? Must add that I will not be off roading in any way. I am also considering adding the Teraflex leveling kit. One local tire store I called said it will not fit and another said it would. I have learned so much on this site-I know I will get a correct answer here. Thank you for answering this ? for the millionth time|

|SonicBoom||Called 4wheelparts to schedule an appointment and they said the tires would rub without spacers|

|SonicBoom||Great to hear, I should have wheels in the next few weeks so it definitely isn't permanent. Thanks|
|03-07-2014 08:49 AM|
|lee indy||should be fine. might rub a little at lock but there are ways to fix that cheap|

|SonicBoom||Just got my DC 33x12.5x17's, any chance of them going on stock JKU?|

If I get a leveling kit at 2" front and 1" in the rear and I run 255/80/17.
Will I have any problems or rubbing anything like that?

|birddogn||Will do, thanks. I hope it was a great trip.|

This is part of the problem with all large tire and wheel combos. They need less backspacing to clear the suspension etc. right, but think of holding a 5 pound weight next to your body, no problem, now hold your arm straight out. Your arm has become a much longer lever, the weight feels much heavier. Same with wheels that have less back space, your moving an even greater amount of weight away from the fulcrum point. This puts a lot more stress on the axle parts, bearings etc.
Hopefully I explained that correctly.

4" rancho sport lift with wheels with 4.75 of back spacing. The installation instructions do not say anything other than the lift was set up for 4.5 of backspacing. Putting 35's on it. Am I worrying over nothing? It's all supposed to get installed Thursday.

|birddogn||This a great thread, very informative. I have a Rubicon X ordered. Dreaming about what mods to make. I'm sure someday we'll go with a full lift, but I'm thinking of a 2" spacer lift out of the gate. I was thinking I'd keep my stock wheels and tires at first. I liked the idea of putting spacers on with the lift to give it a little attitude. Any thoughts on that idea? Also I've asked about this before, but the spacers worry me a little, is that a valid concern? Thanks, also if this has been covered just point me in the right direction. I have read a lot, but surely could have missed something. I know this is what jadmt has, but with taller tires.|

|FIREMEDIC82||I also had one person tell me to stay away from 15 rims on a JK because they will stress the axles too much? Any truth to this?|

i wouldnt recommend a 17 in wheel ever. but i love my 15s
-30 is 3.3 in of backspacing. holly hell. mine are at 3.5 and they stick out alot.
they have some with -19 that will clear.
do these. they clear great and are what my brother runs
Level 8 Tracker custom rims
|02-27-2014 02:37 AM|
I am also new, and really really confused no matter how many threads I read. Discount Tire Direct told me that a 15" Level 8 Tracker wheel with -30MM offset will work with 33x12.50R15 Goodyear Wrangler MTR.
Does anyone have input here? I was also thinking about getting the Pro-Comp MT2's.
You JK owners, would you recommend staying with a 17 wheel? Thats what I have now. But again... what backspacing for a 33" tire.
I am lost and my brain hurts

|08jkstant||Everybodys asked this question but I just wanna make sure I have the right answer a 285/70/17 with 17x9 +00 offset will fit on a stock JK x right?|
