I'm wanting to get bigger tires for my jeep but i'm not sure weather or not they will rub. I'd like to get the 32" grabber at2 tires. My jeep is not lifted yet but my rims give me 3" of backspacing (i don't know if that makes a difference). Would the 32's rub? If they would rub, where, and is it a big deal, thanks!

do you mean your rims have 3" back spacing? if they are 8" wide rims, you wont have an issue with rubbing at full lock, but probably will bury the tire into the fender at full stuff

You will likely rub just going over speed bumps. You could install longer bumpstops, but think you will be bottoming out constantly. If it were mine, I would add a 1.25" Body Lift and trim the stock flares up about 1", then you should be fine.
