I'll be patient and if I find it in the meantime I'll post it here if that's ok with you.
distorted is a Tim? me too

x2 on inferno's idea. I can't remember that crap either. with JK's, TJ's, XJ's etc I get things mixed up.

I just told a guy at the shop he could fit 32's on a stock TJ I thought he ment JK.

Assuming you are trying to figure the BACKSPACE, not offset, since you already know the offset is +25mm....

Offset isn't really pertinent to Jeeps. But here's some info I found on the webz...
Offset measures the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the centerline of the wheel, and it is often indicated in millimeters. If the mounting surface is located closer to the street side of a wheel, then the offset is positive. If it is located closer to the brake side of wheel, then the offset is negative. If it is in line with the center of the wheel, then the offset is zero.

So, if my brain is functioning properly this morning (which isn't likely) Then the bs on would be closer to 6.5"......

distortedtj I'll most likely have the wheel list done in a day or two and have it stickied.

distortedtj Patience grasshopper...I've been working on several stock faq stickies. Just as my other ones in the TJ/LJ fag sticky. They will be there shortly.

And I posted several times about the factory spec's with photos of the wheels but not a complete list. Still working on that one.

We need a sticky....

I have spent half the day searching, and can not find all the info in one place... Can we please get a sticky with all the stock Wrangler wheel sizes? This makes me crazy, I know I've seen it before, but where I have no clue...
