Re: Help.......trying to get tires to fit
If in fact the tires are rubbing on the fenders then I think you have a problem. 33's should fit pretty well with a 3.5 inch lift. If they are rubbing while turning then you have a few options.
A. Get new wheels with less backspacing. I think 3" or 3.5" will work. Although I am not sure, a TJ person will be able to tell you better
B. Adjust the steering stops so that the wheel wont turn into the spring, swaybar, or what ever it hits. That migth be the way to go now, that will save you some money now, and you can always get new wheels later on.
C. You could probably get some wheel spacers for the wheels he has now. ALthough this is also not a bad temp fix, it is generally not looked highly apon.
Hope that helped a little.
