4.75 backspacing
 
Question- if I run a pro comp 7069 with 4.75 backspacing on a 32" DC Fun Country II tire will I have any rubbing issues with a stock JK?

I'm nervous because I already ordered them and didn't see the backspacing until now!

Ugh someone must know the answer to this

Bump

No you will not. Your tire will actually stick out more, thus giving you a wider stance. I feel it make the jeep more stable; especially with a lift.

Will I need spacers than to accommodate the offset from 4.5 then? I'm not too good at this stuff and any info would help! Thanks

No spacers needed. Just bolt your new wheels to your Jeep and your done. I believe the backspace on stock wheels is 6". Check out Tirerack; I'm sure they have some info on backspace and offset.

You can also check out rims n' tires website. They have a program that shows & explains what happens when you change the backspace and/or offset.

Thanks for the help Foxsat71! Ill look into it. Rims and tires should be in by Friday I'm hoping so we will soon find out how they look and feel!

I have the same wheels; same backspace as well. They will stick out about 1 to 1 1/2" past your stock fenders. Good luck with your build.
