Hey guys , im about to order up a new set of rims and tires . I was wondering if anyone knew what was the most backspacing i could run , as well as the narrowest rim. I'm tring to get some really skinny tires with lots of backspacing to bring them back inside the fenders. I'm gonna go with either 39.5 by 13.50 irocs , or 38.5 by 11 inch boggers , or maybe 38 by 12.50 tsl's , ( opinions welcome on this as well). I'm gonna go with 17 inch rims ,and they will be mounted on full width ford dana 44 and 60. Thanks in advance.
what steering arms are you planning on running? that will make a difference.
stock h2 wheels pull the tires back in....

I dont have a highsteer arm , just a tie-rod in front of the axle , then another rod that comes up to the pitman arm , basically modified stock yj steering. Do the stock h2's come in 8 lug? I thought they were 6 , maybe those were h3's i saw? Any recomendations on tires as well ? Thanks a lot.
for tires if your on technical trails w/ mud and rock. Super Swamper TSL's, but if its predominantly mud, go bogger, or go home.

I will be using it on lots of trails and mud , no rocks , and a decent amount of around town driving. I ran boggers before , but they were 35 by 14.50 , not the tall skinny ones im referring too. I think someone on the forum is running them? I'm pretty torn between the skinny boggers and the irocs.
