I'm not a fan of them but to each his own. IMO 17" wheels are too big. What's the back spacing on them?

I was looking at the REV Crusher ones from the other thread. But, somebody pointed out that the backspacing wouldn't be good for a TJ so I trashed the idea. I don't think they have good backspacing for TJs. A JK would be fine with them though. To my understanding, positive offset pulls the tire inside the fender while negative pushes it out. If you're gonna keep your Jeep stock height, you'll probably be fine. But if you're planning to lift and add bigger tires, you'll probably have some problems. You would probably have to run wheel spacers with them. JMO.

0mm offset with a 9" wide wheel equals 5" of backspacing.

a pretty bad choice if you ask me.

Nope not lifting

Ok. Well like guy above said, it's about 5" backspacing which would be close to stock backspacing. So you'd probably be good there. But, since you're not lifting, the biggest tire you're gonna run would probably be a 31x10.5 or an equivalent. I'm not a wheel expert, but a 9" wheel on a 10.5" tire sounds a little too wide. Again, JMO.

No problem buddy. You can do some more research to see if people are running that wide of wheels on that skinny of tires if you want. I've just never heard of it/seen anybody do it. So I'm not totally sure if you'd have problems or not.
