Pics, finally :)


Side view- much nicer fender fill

More to follow- my webhosting site is crap Mark W.

Next pic- size matters

thaduke2003 Ok- without spacers, they fit nicely!
Sadly, the stupid StarScan can't compensate for anything but OEM sizes, apparently, so my speedo is a bit off.
Sounds like it's time for a programmer, na? Pics to follow- Mark W.

That should work perfectly.

Don't make any full-lock turns; I still think you'd benefit from 1.5" wheel spacers. Backspacing is pretty high on stock wheels and 285 width is stretching things.

thaduke2003 Bumpity, even though I'll find out today when the tires go on Mark W.

Hilldweller You will likely rub hard parts up front at full lock and will need wheel spacers; not a big deal.
Depending on the tires, you'll probably only get 32.3" or so from that size anyhow.

AndyLA Yeah, it depends on the tire...I have seen rubbing on a 33" at stock JK height. It is minor but still there. I wouldn't upgrade wheels and tires w/o doing a Skyjacker, RE, or Teraflex BB lift at least for starters.....

CNTLOSE From what I was told today at the dealership you can run up to a 33 inch tire with no rub at factory height. Also the rear gate was redesigned on the JK's to hold a 33" spare wheel and tire...so you do not need the swing out arm. They had one in the showroom today with just a 2.5 lift and it was at least 4-5 inches from the fenders.

I'm not sure about the JK's needing spacers for that wheel/tire combo.

The lift does not determine need for spacers. Its the width of the tire that does.

Lift vs. OEM Rubi wheels

Ok. Finally pulled the trigger on a set of 285/70/17 tires for the OEM Rubicon wheels I have sitting in my garage.
Here are my questions:
1. Will this setup (32.8" diameter) fit on my stock height 2-door X? With/without spacers?
2. Will I need spacers when I add a 3.5" Rock Krawler lift?

Thanks! Mark W.
