Birddog wheels/Backspace 01 TJ
 
Just got me an 01 TJ sport 4.0l (its stock). My plan is to put 32's on Interco Birddogs. They offer 15x9's with 3.5 and 4.5 Backspace. I will change flares and possibly a 2" lift. But which backspace should I go with?

Also have an '01 TJ and recently replaced stock w/ MT Sidebiters 15x8 w/ 3.625 backspace, and ProComp 2" lift. It turned out really well, just the right amount of lift I was looking to gain.

I don't know much about the backspacing req's, but don't think you need to go up to 15x9 wheels. Hope this helps.

Should add tire size duh. 32x11.5 15 my bad...

Sorry, left out that I went w/ BFG MT KM2's in 32x11.5 tires.

Goodyear recommended the 9" wheel width for the MT/R's as tested. No idea if I actually need 15x9's tho?

I think you can run either width w/ the 32's, just gives you a different look. Would defer to someone who knows more than me though. Good luck & post some pics when you finish. Would like to see how it turns out.
