I just bought a '95 YJ with a four cylinder engine. The jeep has 31x10.5 tires and some really serious negative offset rims (-12 per tire guy..whatever that means). My concern is that the tires are really out wide and I feel that must be putting some type of strain on the differential or bearings or something (differential does have a leak per Jeep shop). But I am not getting consistant advice on the rim situation.
You guys are experts, so, should I get rid of the rims and go with something standard (no offset)? If so, will the tires rub?
Please let me know. I love this forum but am obviously not very knowlegeable about these matters.
