there is one wheel out there that is designed to fit tj's, yj's and Cherokees perfect. its the Interco Birddog wheel. 15 or 16 by 9 with a 4.5" backspace. 31/1050r15, 32/1150r15 or even 33/1250's fit perfect not too far out but just enough clearance to clear the sway bars on control arms. on top of that the are designed to work. even have two valvestems. you will have to go to the Interco tire website and click on the wheel to see all the features. it was not designed as a looks only wheel.
someone else suggest the Interco Trxus MT tire, great suggestion on of my favorite tires in the industry.
hope that helps. discount tire, 4wheeler parts wholesale and others can get you fixed up.

|k2enemy||I'm looking at a 4.25" Zone lift and 33x12.5x15 Duratracs on 15" steel wheels. The Zone lift calls for 3.5" of BS. My buddy has a set of d-window wheels which have 4" of BS for next to nothing. Is this going to become an issue or can I simply adjust my steering stops? Thanks.|

I apologize for 'another those questions' type but I am about to order the Dick Cepek Toque Gun Metal or Black on 17". I currently run an AEV 2.5 lift kit and plan on replacing the tires to a 285/70/17 ones.
Will I have any trouble running them without spacers?

|gyramax||I'm looking at a set of Pro Comp Rock Crawler wheels for my 2006 LJ. 15 x 8 with 4.5 bolt pattern. My question is about backspacing. They come in 3.75 or 4.50 BS. Which would you recommend if I want to run 32's or 33's?|

New to jeeps, so confused
Really need some advice if you guys could help me out..
I have an 06 wrangler with stock rims and tires. Right now I know I want 18x9" wheels with 33" tires. I know first off I will need like a 3" lift. My main questions are what backspacing/offset is needed and what tire width should I get? With that being said, I want to get fender flares that line up with the tires, and those will either be 4.5" or 6". You can probably tell I don't offroad really, I just want this to look good. If you could tell what's the right combination to get that would be awesome. Any adivice would be appreciated!!

I had 225/75/15 tires. This is about 9.5 wide and 28.5 high. I wanted to stay 15x8 in a custom wheel but could not find a 15 wheel that did not have a 3.5 bs, -27mm offset sending my wheels out 2 inches + another inch for the bigger tire. Very popular look in GA. I could have gone all black as there are a lot more choices in bs. Instead,I went ions in a 16x8 with a 4.25 bs, -5 offset to get to a 265/70/16. Bigger look with no lift no rub. Cooper Discovery A3s. So instead of sticking out 3", I am at about 2.25. Not much different but the 16s look good. did wheels and tires for about 250 each. PS tire dealer was great. mounted one up (therefore I could not return rim) to check everything out.
I have a 45 MB military so this is my first tj. I did all my research off my stock tires bs , width, height, and used the offset as a quick check. If you look at a lot of custom wheels you will find I think a lot of 3.5 bs which really frog out a 15 x 8 in a bigger tire. Oh well, first timer logic. not a rocker or a mudder, mostly road and trail. My apologies up front to all tjers.

|locker20||I have a 10 Saraha Unltd. Had (still has) 255/70/18's on OEM wheels. I bought Wild Peaks 325/60/18's and was told they would work with 1 1/2 spacers. well.... the tires wont go on the wheels. now I'm looking for wheels. I'm looking for something like the KD Hoss, Rockstar or Addict wheels. my current backspace is 6.25" + - . Am I correct that if I purchase wheels with a 4 1/2" BS that I will not need the spacers? I'm looking for ideas/suggestions. (picts would be good also) It looks like this is not a common mix (18" with 4 1/2 BS). tks for any input!!|

|t84a||Ok. I have a 2000 Wrangler Sport. My tires are P225/75R15 102T. I have the stock alloy wheels but they're all pitted and scratched. I actually like the passenger tires. They are the Radial Long Trail A/T. I'm looking for a good looking wheel and will probably just put the exact same tire on. What would that translate to backspacing? Thanks|

|shrwud96||I have stock wheels, with no lift "YET" on my '08 2 dr and have 285's and they look good. Not sure what OEM backspacing is off the top of my head, but there is 2" wheel spacers and this puts the stance right at the edge of fender flares (stock also). Hope this helps.|
|05-03-2013 08:37 PM|
|pmyers||I have a 2008 JK with oem 17's on it. Its time for new tires and I want a wider stance. With no lift I'm gonna stay with a 265 tire. Anyone know what offset in a rim I would roughly need to get my tires an inch and a half or so out from the edge of the factory fender guards?|

17x9 raceline Raptor on 2013 unlimited offset???
I am looking at buying 17x9 raceline Raptor wheels for my 2013 jeep unlimited. They are telling me they are either Zero offset or 5.0 inch backspacing. Everything I read is I shouldn't have more that 4.5 backspacing or -12 offset. I'm looking at putting these wheels with 285 70r 17. I'm nervous about ordering these. I'm new to this and I really appreciate any knowledge.
|03-21-2013 08:30 PM|
The real reason is the price of the rim from a friend are real cheep. But with a big off-set I'm concerned about the inside rubbing. Will that web site help there too?
Thanks for the help.

17" rims from Jeep Cherokee
Another dumb question from a new/old jeep wrangler owner. Can I put the 17" rims from a cherokee on my wrangler? Looks like the offset discussed earlier may be an issue?
|03-08-2013 12:23 PM|
I am planning on buying the Teraflex 2.5" with bilstein 5100's which requires a 4.5" bs or less.
The wheel I want is Fuel Throttle 18x10 with offset -12. And I want to wrap it in Toyo MT 33/12.5/18.
now i think that allthis will play nice together but my question is about the bs. will that work and will the tires extend out past the fenders and if so how much? Im an idiot when it comes to the offset/backspacing thing.
Anythoughts and or advice on this particular set up would be awesome!

|lee indy||those will work. its 4 in BS. get em.|
|03-04-2013 10:25 AM|
|mscofer||The wheel I want only goes down to a 17". This is a mall crawler. Thanks for the link. I may just go with the DC-2 instead.|

Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com
use that link to see what it will change exactly
that being said on a tj and even a jk why are you going to a 17? compare rubber prices 15-17 rims. not to mention with a smaller rim you get much more side wall to flex and then the extra weight of the rim will make you loose more performance.
|03-04-2013 09:26 AM|
Can you put a 9" wheel on a stock tj. The wheel I want is a 17x9 with a -12 mm offset. I was wanting to go with 265/75/17 tires. A tire website says it won't work because rim is too wide and offset it out a reccomended specs. Is there a solution??

|Tadstj83||I just bought my 97 Tj and its all stock . I ordered a lift, 33x12.50 tires,but haven't ordered the wheels. What back spacing do I need on 15x8 wheels?|
|02-21-2013 01:11 PM|
I'm on the other end of the spectrum here. I have 33x12.50x15 tires on 12.50x15 wheels, no idea on the backspacing. I like the 12.50 tires but I am concerned about the wheels being so wide both for the sake of the hub and ball joints as well as the wheel itself since it sticks out so far. Also as I learned in this thread, airing down could be an issue as well.
To keep the same size tires, should I get 15x8 wheels? Any real advantage/disadvantage to keeping the current wheels?

|redpickle||New jeep owner and need info on tire and rims...90 yj stock rims, how much higher and wider do you think a stock rim will accept|
|01-28-2013 05:16 PM|
I just purchased some Irok 36x13.5R16. I have two questions:
What backspacing should I have on a 10" wheel?
Also being the tire will be a trail only tire(running low psi), would I be able to run a 8" wheel? Any negatives?

|Maysel||I was looking for some help I want to put some 305r70 17 tires on my 06 Tj, and I want to put them on a 17x9 wheel with 4.5 backspace and -12mm offset, I was wondering if the rim has enough backspacing and offset for that size of tire if I have a 3" suspension lift as well. thanks.|

for rocks and stuff a 15x7 with a 4". tires? any good alterrian will work for a daily driver. goodyear duratrac is a "tweener" tire that gives a lot more versatility in wet stuff and general trail use.

02 TJ wheels
I have 33 12.50 15 I am going to use 15x10 wheels but . I want the tires to stick out a little bit. what do i need for backspacing.
|08-24-2012 01:45 PM|
Just put 33x10.5 BFG M/T's on 15x8 stock rims and they rub slightly at full stop. This is the subject of another thread I started in the TJ forum, but also looking to see what folks here would recommend for wheel backspace and offset. This is a confusing subject...
We've considered a body lift on top of the 2.5" RC suspension lift. The debate over wheels alone vs. wheels, body lift and new rear bumper (for the spare) is ultimately about $$$... of course, we'd like all-of-the-above...

I'm a Newb to the forum, but have been driving Jeeps for the past 40 years.
Here is what I just did, and it might interest you. Along with my Question.
Tires & Wheels 2000 TJ just purchased 2012 Tire Set will they fit.
Putting the cart before the Horse.
I have a 2000 TJ Sahara, in need of tires. (Stock 30/9.5/15), I purchased a set of 2012 Take off's 255/70R/18 . I went on line and purchased a set of hub adaptors 5x4.5 to 5x5 1.25 inch offset. I haven't started the install of the new tires, but wanted to know if my new (31" diameter) Rubber will clear without needing a lift kit. I was able to get 5 brand new tires and 18" rims for less than the price of 4 tires mounted on my Old 15" rims. Seems like a lot of buyers of New Jeeps are doing tire and wheel package modifications, and the result is that a LOT of OEM tires and rims are available at really great prices. I had my choice of 255/75R/17 or 255/70R/18 same overall size (31").
If I need to do a lift, what is the least aggressive way to go.
