Input for running 65" wms on a YJ
I am thinking about running a couple axles of a 79' F-250. They are 65" wms on both. Currently I am running 60" wms front and 58" wms rear. I am in the middle of building my own tube fenders f/r, so coverage wouldnt matter. I am looking for input as in stability and how road friendly it feels being a bit wider on every corner. Thanks.
does your state require full tire coverage on street driven vehicles?....if it does, those are gonna' be some very wide tube fenders

I been wanting to ask the same question, but also would changing the backspacing on the wheels make it where they wouldn't stick out as far. I don't really want the change my width, but i have a set of Dana 60's that I picked up to resale and im half tempted to use them.

Hummer 2 rims or late model Dodge rims have a lot of backspacing will tuck the tires in nicely without having to narrow the axles. My Jeep with fullwidth axles and Hummer 2 rims is a whole 2" wider than my other TJ with stock axles and 10" wide rims with 3.75" backspacing

I was planning to stretch it a little if I decide to run over a 37" tire. Its just another project, the first was to put waggy axles under and now I have the heavy duty hp dana 44 and want to run it and a rear dana 60 I have. I have been pulled over many a time for blown out tail lights or other random bull and not once for my tires. I do like the wide stance, feels great side hilling.
