quick question on rubi rims and 35"s...

so im bout to put this 3.25 rough country lifts on my 09 jk... and when i ordered the lift kit it had little note it said "If running 35s on factory wheels, double check clearance between front tire, lower control arm and sway bar link." .. now would this be an issue that i need to worry about when i finish the instllation???, and if there is an issue, what do i need to do to keep my stock rubi rims??? cuz i actually like these rims..

Your stock rims are 6.25" backspacing, which sucks, quite frankly. Means your wheels are gonna be really tight on your Jeep, and may very well rub aftermarket swaybar links and/or control arms.

That's why most people buy aftermarket rims with 4.5" or less bs...moves the wheels out from the Jeep so rubbing those bad boys isn't an issue.

Might still work...you'll have to try it and see. If it rubs, and you wanna keep your stock wheels, you'll have to get some wheel spacers.

At least they gave you a note. Coulda let it be a surprise.

Good luck!

What kind/size of tires are you thinking on installing? The reason I ask is that I really like the stock wheels as well, but the 35" tires I have come across call for a wider wheel than the stock ones
