  1. Tires & Wheels
    Hi I've been wrestling with the following problem for months: what is the biggest backspacing I can go with on my lifted 2016 JKU Wrangler with 17x9 wheels if I get 35 inch tires and do not want rubbing issues ? To be more specific the tires will most likely be BFG T/A ko2's, in size 315/70R17...

    I'm planning to replace my stock tires and wheels with 285/75R16s on Pro Comp 7069 16 x 8 wheels, which have 4.0 backspacing. I've always heard that 4.5 backspacing was ideal for 33" tires, so in my innocence I assumed 4.0 was close enough. But someone recently suggested they would stick out...

    Apologies if this is covered already (my newb search skills are lacking), feel free to hit me with links if so, but... While living in Chi-Town, someone stole my spare and wheel right off the back of my Jeep (locking lugs, i know, it was primarily garage-kept - was out for one night). In...

    Hello, I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler X , 4.56 Gears, 4 inch lift. Now I was looking at 15x8 rims with a offset of ,-12,-19, and -27. I seen the -12 offset was 4.03 backspace, -19 was 3.75 and the -27 was 3.44. I'm looking to get 33x12.5x15 Tires so I was wondering what offset id need so I don't...

    im looking at a set of rims that are 15x10 with 3.5" backspace, and tires that are 32" but the actual diameter is 31.5". would the backspace be enough to clear the body in the rear? also would it rub in the front when turning?
  8. JK General Discussion
    Ok I have been scouring the forum and my head is ready to explode. I love my 2014 jk but would like to bump up my tire size. I like the rubicon rims but for some reason I am concerned about the spidertrax spacers that I had to install due to the lift so I and going nuts trying to decide. I am...

    My LJ came with American Racing 16" rims. I think they're 5inch back spacing. I'd like to get some 1.25" or 1.5" wheel spacers. 1) Would you recommend just the 1.25"? 2) I don't really want to spend $200 on spacers. I see some go for like $129 for 4, is there any brands that you recommend, or...

    I am totally set on wheels like this (17x9) I was just wondering if a five inch backspace would work with 33''s (285x70x17??)at stock height, and then with a 2.5'' lift. I was looking for 4.5'' backspace but not all wheels are offered in that. Any other suggestions or advice is welcome
