35's on an XJ
I'm trying to get 35's on my cherokee and i'm in need of some help. I have 33x10.50's on right now and i need to get 35x12.50's on it. I measured the gap between the back of the front tire and my long arm, it's abou 2 inches right now. I think I need to get different wheels to get the new tires to fit but i'm not sure about the numbers. I want to stick with 8" wide but what kind of back spacing and off set do I need so that the tires don't rub my long arm? Please someone HELP!!
Backspacing: Lower is better. 4" is common.
Current: Black 89 limited, dakota bastard pack, zj coils, 1.5" lift, open cooling swap, bronco 2 carrier, rad fan switch
Rest in Pieces: Red 1990 cherokee dana30/8.25 - v8 zj coils & s10 bastard pack 2.5" lift - 31x10.5r15 tires - v8 zj tierod
