Here's a pic of mine with 4.25" bs and 12.50's. It'd stick out the same as 3.75" bs and 11.50's sinde the half inch difference is bs is recouped by the same difference in tire diameter...


I don't think you'd have any probs with the tires sticking out that amount, I haven't, but the problem is that if you ever move to 12.50's, they'll stick out a half inch even further and that's the noticeable difference that will start gettitng flagged by those that do the ticketing.

OK, so If i got new wheels, would I need 15x8 with how much backspacing so the 32's dont rub? I found some that have 3.75, is that enough and will my tires stick out more than before?

4.5" would give you plenty that the tires wouldn't rub in the back. You may still have to add a washer to the steering stop. This will keep the tires under the flares 3/4" more than the 3.75" backspacing. Good luck finding 15x8 wheels with 4.5" backspacing though...there's not a lot of them. This is one reason I went to 16" wheels.

There's only one that I know of, a 32x10.50 Super Swamper Radial. Not sure what your requirements are for a tire, but this is gonna be a bit more towards the aggressive side of the spectrum.

As long as you dont do a ton of miles on road, you will be very happy with the TrXus. They have proven to go as far as 30k miles. But rotations often are an absolute must. I go every 3k. and watch your tire pressures, these like to run fairly low.

I will have a used set available shortly. About 3k miles on them. I'm going bigger.

A used set of 31's? for how much? i also heard that the tire width is less than advertised or something, I read it on an australian offroad site. How much does a rotation cost. On my old 01 WJ I never got my 32's rotated and they seemed fine.

A set of jackstands and a good lug wrench will pay for infinite rotations. Do it yourself and save a bundle of cash in the long run Smile .

I don't know really. Haven't thought about it seriously at this time. They're not ready yet as I don't have the new tires. Keep an eye on the For Sale forum.

A rotation? Do it yourself and it's free. You'll need a jack and 2 pairs of jack stands. Get the front and rear up on the stands, then remove the tires and wheels, placing each one of a different location of the vehicle.

Could I get a 16x8 wheel with 4.25" of backspacing with a 32x11.5" tire without having any rubing, or sticking out problems?

I'm pretty sure 4.5" is pretty common with 16x8's. Another thing is that the 32's in the 16" variety are a little narrower, I believe around 10.50~11.00ish. So both those things will help out with your prob, only downside is that the 16's tend to cost more than 15's.
