    So been looking at a lot of method racing wheels and most of them I like the rim is 17x8.5 0 off set and 4.75” back spacing. I was planning on doing 37x12.5r17 and would like the tire to stick out to where three tread lugs are under the finder and one is out side the finder. Wondering what...

    Hi everyone I have a 2011 Jeep jku. I have a 2.5 in quadratec lift. I am wanting to know if I can run 305/70r17 on a rim with 5.2 backspacing. I know 4.5 is preferred but I have some 5.2 I bought when I was planning for 285s

    Hello! I am looking to put 295/75r16 BFG K02's on my 2012 JKU and i am looking at 16x8 wheels. I currently have two options picked out 1) Pro Comp 69 (4'' backspacing) and 2) Pro Comp 32 (4.5'' backspacing). I have a preference for the Pro Comp 32's based on looks and as I've read that smaller...

    I'm hoping to get some method wheels eventually because I will need less backspacing for a Metalcloak GC lift and I'm interested in the "trail grip". My jeep has always had black wheels, so I'm considering a change to bronze. In my mind, I think it would work with my yellow JKU, but does anyone...

    Hi guys! I'm going to be getting an AEV 2.5" lift installed with new wheels and tires. I currently have the stock wheels/BFG MT tires on my 2014 JKU Rubicon X. I'll be running BFG AT KO2 34/10.5R17 tires, and am wondering if I should get 17x9 wheels with a 4.5" or 5" backspacing (Fuel...

    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...

    Hey guys, just wanted to get your opinion. I'm putting some 285/70/17s' on a stock suspension JK sport. The wheels i'm looking at (17x8.5) come in different offsets. +10mm (5.14" bs) or -10mm (4.36" bs). Which offset would be best? Thoughts? I don't offroad too much, it's a DD, and I wouldn't...

    Before you say "You ordered these tires and you don't know?", let me give a little backdrop. First Jeep ever. Had about 2 yrs and original tires are getting low on tread. I've tried to research this exhaustively, asked some questions on the forums, but I'm now needing the experts advice for...

    Hey all, I got some new MT Classic III rims for a Christmas/Birthday gift. When we were picking them up from 4 Wheel Parts in Naperville, IL, the dude helping us said that I wouldn't need the spacers that I have now and that the wheel will stick out further than it currently is now... Here are...

    I'm sure this has been asked but could not find the answer after a lot of looking. I installed a 3" Zone lift on a 2003 sport TJ. I bought some 33x10.5x15 BFGs AT to go on my stock 7" wide rims. Am I going to rub on the rear shock towers? I didn't think that far ahead when ordering the tires...

    Hey! So just upgraded from a WJ to a JKU and I'm getting ready to upgrade it. I loved the look of 15s that I had on my last Jeep and was looking to do the same with my newer one, but I've been researching around and I understand that some people have had issues with backspacing and fitment when...

    Hey guys, new member to the forums from PA and looking for some advice. I just put 285/75/16 tires on some procomp 7069 with 4" backspacing. I had to extend the bumps stomps by over 2" to touch the tire. I used a combination on black rubber hosing that slide over the existing stops. I put...

    Hi all, I will be purchasing new wheels and tires soon. I have a good idea of what I want, but I'd like the opinion of someone more experienced than myself before I pull the trigger. The jeep is mostly a daily driver, but I enjoy riding very light trails maybe once a month. I will be getting a...

    Hi all! I'm new to this forum but have found some awesome info on here this weekend while researching. I've found similar posts, but wanted to ask about my specific wheels and tires for help.
