What wheel offset is required to run 35x12.5 on 2006 TJ Rubi with no lift?
 
This is my first post, so any posting tips will be respected. Thanks in advance for your guidance. There are some very cool tips and tricks on this site. I wheel a stock 2006 TJ Wrangler Rubicon. The last set of tires I bought were 265/75 16 MTRs. They are about done, and I want to run 35s. I saw a post saying that with the Metal Cloak hi line fenders a Stock suspension TJ can run 35s! I am excited that this is possible. I am currently running stock rims, and in jumping from 245/75 16s to 265/75 16s I have a little undercarriage rub at full right and full left. If I go with the hi line fenders from MC, I imagine rid will only get worse with taller wider tires.

[QUOTE="Hoppopotamus;3843180"]This is my first post, so any posting tips will be respected. Thanks in advance for your guidance. There are some very cool tips and tricks on this site.

Even if i go with the hi line fenders from MC, I imagine the undercarriage rub will only get worse with a taller wider tire. What wheel offset will be required to eliminate that rub? I am hoping to run 35x12.5 15 BFG MTs. Am I on the right track?

Sorry to take so long to get back to you on this. To run 35's at stock height with our fenders we have found that a 15x8 with 3-3.5" back space works best. You might still need to adjust the steering stops to keep the tire from contacting the sway bar on the front while turning. Every jeep is a little different and takes a little fine tuning to dial in.

Thanks much. My new fenders should ship today. New rims and tires are ordered. Gonna be a great weekend of wrenching. Thanks for the info. 👍
