It works. You might get into the fenders at discoed full flex though. Course, there isn't that many rocks in Florida! BTW, welcome to WF.

thank you, true not to many rocks, i prefer the mud and sand more than anything and i am looking for a "cheap" way to put a little larger tire than my current 31's...

will the 32x11.50's fit on my stock rims??

you might need spacers, but for the price of the, I'd look into something aftermarket with less backspacing.

yeah you can, i just put bf 32's a/t with 2"skyjacker bb. There is a slight rub at full turn. I have the stock aluminum 15"rims which will need proper backspacing.

a wheel with 3.75 - 4.5" backspacing should work fine w/a 32" tire.

You might want more flex. for those alligators and canals.... ;)

what is meant by backspacing and how is it done?

ok picture the backside of the wheel facing up (with the street side pointing towards the ground.

backspacing is the distance from the hub mounting pad (the middle circle part where the holes are for the studs) to the lip of the rim.

i had 32s and 2" BB before. on the road they don´t rub, off the road the tires need more room (only if you disconnect the swaybar). you can fix it with an additional 1"-2" BL or with extended bumpstops.

here you can see how it looks like:

The yellow tape measure in the below photo is measuring the wheel's backspacing. It's measured from the rear and is the dimension between the wheel mounting flange at the bottom of the tape measure and the bottom of the straight edge. :)

oh, now i understand what backspacing is.

here in europe we measure that in an other way. the "einpresstiefe" here is what you name backspacing minus the half of the wheels width.

p.e. the stock 7x15 tj wheels have a "einpresstiefe" of -30 millimeters.

That's what we call the 'offset' dimension here in the U.S., which is a different dimension from the backspace dimension. :)

the problem is that in most US shops we can´t see the offset. only the backspacing.
thanks for teaching me that...!

adjust the stops! no backspacing needed!
