Re: rim ???

Yes, it will work, but they will rub on the springs. Preferred width is 8" rim for wheeling because there's less chance of popping a bead.

Re: rim ???

As JEEPN said, they will probably get the springs. Look back about a week or week and a half and it was covered on about three different posts. I ran a 15x10 w/4" backspace w/35x12.50's that hit the springs at full lock, and the rears hit the tub under twisting. I ordered new wheels this time with 2.5" backspace, and doesn't look like I will have the same problem.
