F100 wheels

I have been told that F100 wheels in a 15x8 size have the correct stud pattern and offset for my Samurai. I want to run a 33" by 12.5/14.5 tire

Re: F100 wheels

hot toddy,you must check the back spacing to get the tires to work .without proper back spacing,big lugs like swampers will rub,you will need more back spacing.look for 2" to 3" back space, good luck ranger rick

It depends a lot on if you are SpOA or SpUA. SpOA can get away with less deep rims, as the contact points of the tire and springs change.

I am SPUA with 3" lifted springs and 1" body lift.

Yes, they will work. It's a 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern. Also fits older CJ Jeeps. Just keep in mind the backspacing. Stock Sami wheels use 2.75" (I think). You can get away with 3' in most situations.

Re: F100 wheels

If you are planning to run that much tire you better get some more lift.or cut massive chuncks of sheet metal,i have about 7 in. total lift and my 33s still rub at full stuff.i need to put in some bump stops,i really don't want any more lift mike
