I am hitting this gray area ...if I buy new rims to fit 33x12.50 tires, what back spacing will be needed to make them work while keeping them tucked in as much as could be without having any problems.

Also, thinking originaly of keeping my canyon rims and installing 32x11.50 tires. I will be installing the 2 in budgey boost and thought i still may need to add a 1 inch BL. This is the least costly I figure.

that was some good reading...I feel lucky that I found this site before I ordered my tires. Looks like some grinding and some washers and maybe a 1/2 inch spacer kit if needed will keep me on track. I really like the canyon wheels on my silver jeep and do not want to have to spend another $500 to accomplish the same profile I want.

Thanks for taking time to find the links for me.

I guess it's all preference but why would anybody want a more narrow wheel base on a Jeep? Wide tracks help so much with pavement stability when cornering and also more leverage on the rocks, especially if you are going to lift the Jeep. Stay wide, that's my motto.

because many states will actively ticket you for having tread protrusion past your fender flares.

Now that is gay. I live in AZ and we have by far the most replaced windshields from rocks flying but you don't get any tickets here. I guess I would just get extended fenders then. Rather have a wide track with extended fenders then a more norrow track.

...and there are those even unfortunate enough to live in states that regulate the width of fender flares, not mentioning any states *cough* PA Rolling Eyes . In an ideal world, track width would be increase as the height of the vehicle is modified, but such is not the case.

Exactly, who wants to get a lift but keep a narrow base? That's just insane.
