33s are coming, will they fit?
The jeep is coming together, I got the lift on, the drive line vibrations figured out, the engine running like a champ, now it is tire time.
I love the new BFG mud terrain KMs, so I ordered up a set of 33X12.50. I need to know if they will rub because of my rims.
The rims I have a off an RV, they look exactly like the black "rock crawler" steel wheels everyone sells. They are 15x8s and I dont know the back spacing?
I only have 9.50s on the jeep now, so the jump to 12.50s is fairly major. Will the 12.50s fit on a cj with most rims. I am talking about the direction towards the jeep, nnot the fenders, I have that covered(I hope!).
What back spacing would I need to fit these tires?
How do I measure the backspacing of my current wheels?
If wont work, what about spacers, who sells them, how much do they cost? DO I need new lug nut studs? What are the disadvantages besides wider stance, if you consider that much of a disadvantage?
Any advice is good.
