|InfernoGirl||That's a good looking Sahara! I think Doc is right, differences in actual tire width vs. stated size. I just put 33x12.5's on 4"bs soft 8's on mine. No lift yet, but with the bs I don't rub. I really hope they don't rub when she's lifted.....|

Went to 4'' lift and of course went to 285's (33'') and it scrubbed more because they were a lilttle bit wider.Now with an added body lift, 15x8 Eagle alloys with good backspacing on 35x12.5's no scrubbing.|

|doclouie||The answer that many have about rubbing or not on 31" 10.5 15 tires will directly change depending on the tires you have. My Dick Cepek tires rub on both sides and my Big O tires in the past do not. It would be helpful to post here what brand your 31" tires are on your stock ride and if they will rub.|

Mine rubbed with the stock alloy rims with 31x10.50.
Now that I have 15x8 w/3.75 backspacing steelies i can turn forever and no rub whatsoever. Tires also stick out of the flares a bit. But that looks SWEET!

|jaquesjeep||A friend said I could have a set of his extra 15x8 with a 4.75 backspacing... if i run 31 10.5 will they rub? That seems like a big backspacing...|

31 10.50s and 15 x 8 low backspace rims vs axles wheel bearings...
I Have a TJ (98 sahara) and 31 10.5 wrangler gsa rubber i am currently running with a 1.25 wheel spacer due to suspension rubbing (in paticular the uh control arm i think it is)... the wheel spacer made it clear, but i can't get the @#$% things to stay tight..... common issue... i am thinking about a 15x8 rim with 3.25"-3.5" backspacing but i am concerned about axle/wheel bearing troubles.. any feedback anyone???
