I'm going to be purchasing some 29 X 10.5 super swampers for my XJ and they will be going on Crager 15 X 8 rims. What is the stock backspacing ? What would be the correct backspacing to get? Can't wait to get these old BFG's off and tear up some mud holes!!

Stock backspacing on XJ's is 5.25". The general rule of thumb for oversize tires is around 4.5" of backspace.

Moving this to Suspension, Steering and Tires.

You can run 10.5's on the stock rims. They will rub a little on the lca's. If you are going to get new rims anyway I would go with 4" of bs. Then if you upgrade to 12.5's you will be fine. JIM.

Phantum,
So with 4.5" that would not make them stick out too far correct??
