They didn't always come in the 255/75, so those not wanting to deal with spacer or new wheels would choose the 265/70.

What size tire do you want to run? If you go with a 285/70-17, you can go to as much as 5.2" of backspacing. AEV's wheels are set to that and are designed to fit under the fenders.

So yes, you can...

When you say "forward and backward" do you mean more up and down? Like if you grab it with your hand, you are able to rotate it like you'd rotate a motorcycle throttle?

If so, that's normal and...

No problem... I mocked up the black soft top, painted hard top, and adjusted the tan color to be lighter/tanner.



I mocked up a third version that has more tan. This is a bit elaborate and...

Actually, I think the Sahara should be dropped. The typical nomenclature for the special editions is just to have the special edition name.

The base green was just a result of searching for a Natural Green Pearlcoat. Your monitor might be calibrated different, too. It'll never be 100%.

The tan I used was by my eye as to what "looked...

This is more green than you were thinking, but I think this would be the most-likely way it would be done from the factory. I would think this could be painted in such a way so as not to look bad at...

Naturally, that will depend on the width of the tires, but my memory seems to tell me about an inch.

4.5 will stick out past the fenders more. I like the 5.2 of AEV's backspacing personally, or the 4.7 found on Quadratec's Moabs, but many here run closer to 4".

No. With aftermarket wheels having less back spacing (~4.5" inches is what most shoot for), you'll be fine.

Okay, so the 305/55/22 tires measure out at 35.2" tall by 12 inches wide.

Based on the first pages of this thread, I doubt you'll fit without rubbing both the height and width.

However, since...

Okay, fair enough.

In order to help you, we'll need more information, like bolt pattern, wheel width, and tire size to get an overall picture of what you're looking to do.

Yes.



285/70/17s are classified as a 33-inch tire and measure out as 11.2 inches wide by 32.7 inches tall.

315/70/17s are actually closer to 35-inches and measure out 12.4 inches wide by...

Short answer: yes, you need spacers to run wider tires on the stock wheels.

Long answer: You are asking about the height, but forgetting about the width. You can easily run a 255/80/17 on stock...

The stock Sahara wheels are 18 inches. Do you have the sport 17" wheels?

You technically need the spacers for the 285s, although if you don't flex or turn full lock, you can get away with no...

Are you opening the latches all the way? When you do, they should extend enough to catch onto the hooks. There should be no reason to use a ratchet or pull down on any bars to get the top back into...

Looks really great. Backing up might be tough with that much overhang, but I'm sure it will be alright.

Good job!
