  • Need help from all Lifted TJ owners !!!!

    Its coming down to less then 20 days until i get my Fabtech 4 inch lift. I saw a bad ass TJ today with 33 by 1250's today and it looked really good , didnt stick out as much, but there is another one in my school that look hiouse and stick out too much, Iam deciding between what tire and what size could you please post pix of your lift and tire sizes so i can see the diffrence between 10 adn 12 50's. Thank you very much.

    hi, I have a 4.5 inch RE long arm with 33x12.50 BFG/AT on Extreme alloy 15x8 rims. 3 1/4 inch backspacing i think. I have yet to rub anywhere when going through the turning radius, even when flexed.


    more pics here plus some with the stock wheels and tires 30x9.50 http://photobucket.com/albums/v678/deamersjeep/

        The back spacing on the rim has a lot to do with how far the tire sticks out. So keep that in mind.

          These are 33x12.50's. 3"lift. Not sure of the actual backspacing. I purchased the jeep like this. When I took off the wheels I never saw any spacers, so there might not be any backspacing... :confused: Oh, and exdended fender flares.

                  Backspacing is how much distance from the medial aspect of the rim (the inside) to the wheel mounting surface. Therefore, more backspacing means less "sticking out". It's recommended to go with 3.5-4.25" backspacing with 35x12.5 tires.

                  Also, did the TJ you saw at school have full-width axles or stock?

                  HTH.

                      RE 3.5" springs (currently riding at 3.75" over stock height). 285/75R16 MT/R's on stock wheels.



                      Tires stick out just far enough to make a mess on the side of the jeep (and inside the jeep when the doors are off), yet don't stick out enough to rub on the fender flares.
