I installed a 2" lift in my 99 TJ Sport and am looking at getting tires. I currently have stock tires & wheels. Most of the posts are asking whether 31's will fit... My question is what about 32's on the stock 15 inch rims?
Will thet fit/rub/fall off...? I've also seen some responses mentioning washers under the steering stops. Doesn't this limit your turning radius?
I am looking at some general purpose AT's like the BFG AT/KO's or similar. Most of my off-roading is on rocky desert roads in So. AZ for hunting. My Jeep is also my daily driver, so nothing too radical, but definitely robust.

The 11.5 width of the 32s will prevent you from running the stock wheels. You will be dangerously close to the upper coil perch in the rear wheel wells. If you rub the perch, it will shred the tire sidewall.

Yes, you lose turning radius if you put washers under the steering stops. But guess what??? You lose turning radius when the larger tires rub the control arms, also.

Rubbing tires and rigged steering stops are not the way I want to go. I guess if I go with 32's, I'll go with offset wheels.
Might as well do it right than do it over again.
Do wheel sets come in standard offsets? If so, what are they?
