Will a 3.5 inch backspacing be enough to run 33x12.5R15 TSL's on a 15x10 rim, on a 79 CJ 7 with narrow track axles. I have 4 inch lift, and TJ flares. I am concerned with the tires rubbing the frame, or the front springs. Please advise.

I DON'T THINK IT WILL WORK. I HAVE A 79 CJ7 QUADRATRAC AND MINE HIT THE SPRINGS IF IT ARTICULATES AT ALL. FOUND A SPEED SHOP IN OKLAHOMA TO MAKE ME SOME NEW WHEELS FOR $55 DOLLARS A WHEEL OR $125 FOR BEAD LOCK WHEELS,WHICH I THINK WOULD BE PRETTY COOL AND HELP WHEN MY TIRES ARE DEFLATED AT THE SAND DUNES.AFTER SOME QUICK MEASURING I AM GONNA GO WITH A 2" BACK SPACE. GOOD LUCK

IF I BUY ANYMORE TOYS,I'M A DEAD MAN!!!!!!!!!

Not sure how much wider the 15x10's will push the sidewalls out, but I have had the same tire on 15x8's and fit good with a 3" susp lift and no body lift on a 76 cj7

I too have been going around & round trying to find a rim with enough backspace in it to mount 33x14x15 "Boggers" Best I've found so far is from
National Tire & Wheel - Eaton rims 15x10 can get them made up with 3" of backspace..www.natltire.com or go the spacer route? from Performance Wheel & Tire ... www.performancewheel.com the spacers are fairly costly though for that kind of coin, I'd just as soon put full size axles on and get an upgrade at the same time ;) really wide track but could run offset to correct this some. I too wish I could buy a 2" backspace rim, as for stock width jeeps would really work well. I'll follow this thread and see what others come up with.
