Wow I have the 3.5 super ride with 32 11.5 15 and i had to trim the front fenders but I cut and folded mine anyway. I never had any rubbing on my control arms and my tires are not even close to the leafsprings like in those pics. even with my stock rims they never came that close.

DC-2 Wheels

Anybody running Dick Cepek DC-2's on there XJ? Im looking at 15x8's for my 31x10.5 but not sure if 3 5/8 backspacing will be a problem with my 3.5" lift. Also looking at the 15x10 but dont know which would look better with 31's.

I wouldn't run 15x10" wheels with 10.50 tires, they will look goofy and you won't be able to air down at all. 10.50's look a lot better on 15x7" or 15x8" wheels.

DC-2 Rims

Thanks xjfever, ill get the 15x8's. Do you think 3 5/8" backspacing will be a problem. I know the recommended for this lift is 4-4.75" BS.

geeez!

i had the stock wheels on 31's, and could never make a proper full circle, cuz the tires would rub, so, i went to my local discount shop, and bought a sweet sweet of wheels for 190, and that took care of the spacing!

gave it a nicer, more aggressive stance too.

What wheel/tire set up is that? Those have to be stock wheels? No?

I have the DC-1's and I'm trying to get info on them as well. I wan't to go 32's on the 15X8's with the 3.65 BS. But most people do either the 31's or 33's with these wheels not the 32's. I want to know if I can get away with keeping the flares stock with a 4.5 inch lift with these rims and 32x11.5x15's. I know they wont hit the control arms and will probably have to trim the bumper ends but I don't wanna touch my flares. Any input guys?

Honestly the tires are ok but I got all 4 for $260 so I can't complain. They are kinda worn down and they aren't that good in the mud, they don't clean very well. They are also kinda loud on the road but I just turn the radio up so that is a non issue for me.
