I ordered yesterday soft cragrs 15 x 8 with 4 inch backspace. The tires will be 33x12.5. I also ordered bushwacker 6 inch flares. my question is with this setup will the tires be alligned straight with he flares? Or ia the tire gona stick out? Or the flares? The wheels are on backorder so i can change the order to 4 inch flares. Thanx. Btw the lift is a 4 inch rc.

I have those wheels and tire with stock flares, mine protrude 2" from the flares. Maybe that'll help you decide which flares to get...

Call where you are ordering from & they will be able to tell you. If not talk to Discount tire on here, they are a vendor & they will help
But my question is about the flares. Do you think they can help? Plus from kuwait its really expensove to call the states. I hope someone who already has them one could chip in.

I just measured my flares (they're stock) and they were close to 4" from the outside of the tub. So I'm thinking that since InfernoGirl is running the same rim/tire combo as you, and her tires protrude about 2" from the stock flares you should be fine with the 6" flares.

I dont know because o talked to a shop tody and they said with the 6 inch tge flares will be further than the tire a bit and with the 4 3/4 the tire will stick out a bit.

In post number 11 like i referred you to, kizer states that he has a backspacing of 4.25"(his tires are tucked in .25" more than yours) and he has coverage with the 6" flares.

"I currently have 4.25 inches of backspacing so my tires are tucked pretty well and stick out 6-inches, which my flares cover."

from his post I would reccomend the 6" flares since your tires will stick out .25" more than his.

But do you think he means that his tires are covered exactly? And that means my tires will stick out .25 inch?

Not bushwacker, but here is a 6" flare with 33x12.50 with 3.75 BS to give you an idea. Depending on your tire your tire should fit in closer/under the flare.

Thanx for the pics. If i have 4 inch backspace that means my tires ar gona be in more so that means j think i have to go woth the 4 3/4 then the tire will be out about an inch? Right?

The smaller the back spacing number the further out the tire will extend from the jeep. Stock is @5.5 bs depending on the rim. So with a 3.75 bs the rim will set the tire @1.75" out more vs. the 5.5 bs

Yeah truee. Soo i think i will go with the 4 3/4 flares because i dont want the tires to be exactly alligned with the flares i want the tire to stick out like half an imch to an inch.
