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?

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

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

|willbarrow81||Here's what I did with my stock jk sport, I bought 5 Sahara rims 17" and put 285 70's on them and they fit fine. No rubbing, except for a tiny bit on the shocks I think when at super full turn I just don't crank it totally over leave an inch and it never touches. my plan is to get the teraflex 1"1/4 body lift before next tires, and move up to 315 70's. I called today and the guy said they would fit if I was doing light 4x4 or mud. so that's what I'm gonna do. Any body running this combo already? Thanks.|

|Tabsher1||So if I put my 255/70/R18 Duelers on them for now knowing that I'll want to replace them with 33" Duratracks down the line, what type of back spacing should I be looking at? Even with the Duelers, I'd like to get them sticking out an inch or so from where they are now. Any drawbacks to that train of thought?|
|02-19-2014 07:54 PM|
|jadmt||they will fit just fine.|

|Tabsher1||New here. 2013 Sahara Unlimited with Stock 18x7.5 and the 32" Bridgestone Duelers. Was thinking for now I'd upgrade the wheels and tackle the tires when these ones have run their course (few years out). So I found some wheel options but noticing that most of what I like come in 18x8.5. Correct assumption that my Duelers won't fit on these wheels since they're currently on 18x7.5's? Even typing it, it sounds like a real stupid question but I'm admittedly very new to this. Even taking a while to grasp tire sizes the way they're listed...but this forum has been a great help so far. Lots of knowledgable and helpful folks on here...thanks!|
