33s no lift
 
I just got 33 on my rig and they rub and make my rig shake like crazy any help? is it save till next week that I get a lift. Only rub when I do sharp turns.

I have an 08 JK, and put 33's on my jeep with no lift. I have the same rub. It doesn't effect driving only sharp turns. The rubbing is on front end parts and at low speeds won't damage either the front end or the tire. If you are concerned with it, your choices are wheel spacers or a lift.

Sorry forgot to mention the obvious, getting new wheels with the proper back spacing.

Thanks... So do u think that a 1.5 wheel spacer for the front will work out fine, till I save up for a lift and new wheels?

Before you run out and spend the $$ on spacers, try adding some washers to your steering stops. Simple, quick, and far cheaper...Plus, you won't have to deal with the ongoing maintenance that comes with wheel spacers.

Just a thought.

No need, but thanks for the offer. I am in Calgary Alberta and tomorrow I am trading my 08 on a new 10A. I ordered it on April 9, and the dealer called me last week and told me that I can pick it up on Monday afternoon. I am hoping it goes well with the pick up. Our city flooded over the weekend. We had two feet of water covering our downtown area, and over 15' near the river.

The rub will be someone else's to worry about, but good luck with yours.

Lift doesn't fix this kind of rub. Lift fixes wheel arch rub at flex. Turning rub with larger tires can only be fixed by offset or the crappy option of reducing lock, and in turn turning circle.

1.5 inch wheel spacer will fix it?

Just to clear things up:

If your wheels are rubbing vertically, i.e. on the fenders, you need a lift. If they're rubbing side-to-side, that is, when your wheels are turned to their stops, you need either wheels with more backspacing, or washers on your steering stops. The washers will only help you if you have a very minimal rub on your steering stops. If you're tires are hitting your suspension components, you likely need new wheels.

Yes, spacers will do the job, but be aware, you need to check em for torque every tire rotation. So there's a maintenance factor...

Also, all spacers are not created equal. If you plan to go that route, buy some good ones, like the Spidertrax. And a lot of peeps swear by hub-centric.

Yes, because that is changing offset.
