Soo. Need help with tires!

I considered myself lucky to find 5 265-65-r17 cooper AT's. 4 barely used and a fully size spare for 600 dollars with 5 soft 8 wheels too. Anyhow. Do I need back spacers or anything if I put it on a 2 inch BB? Or a 3.5 inch lift? Don't know too much about this.

They should measure out to be 30.5 inches, so you would be fine with a bb. And if they're on soft 8's, the backspacing should be perfect, depending on the dimensions.

Federal Couragia M/T's on Procomp Steelies, np231 swap, IRO Hack n Tap SYE, Carolina Driveshaft, 4.5 in. lift, RE front upper/rear lower ca's, RC front lowers, Ironman rear uppers, IRO 4.5 coils in rear, 3.5 and 2" bb (no isolators) in front, Bilstein 5100's, Clayton/JKS adj. track bars, KOR rad support and SS, Magnaflow/Flowmaster exhaust, clear corners, custom light bar w/ Hella 500's

What Freestyle said, but you'll probably have to do some minor front fender trimming. Basically just the outermost part of the fender where it curves back in.

That size tire you may have rubbing, I run 265/75r15 on my ZJ and I don't even have a lift.
(After 4 months I have just ordered one) Also what Freestyle said about backspacing with those soft 8's.

Just to say what all the other guys already said, you should be fine with a bb. May have to do minor trimming if you offroad it, but shouldn't be too bad.

I've decided, 4.5 inch IRO premium lift kit
Now.. 32 inch tires, with 15 inch rims? Soft cragar 8's I think. I don't know anything about backspacing. But can someone find me a tire and wheel package, preferably with all terrains. Don't want MT's. I wheel 3-4 times a week. And it's my DD

I would suggest m/t over a/t, as all terrains kinda suck imo. You need 3.75-4inch bs.

You'd wear m/ts out like crazy with dd duty. I got some Goodyear wrangler a/ts and after 10k they don't show any signs of wear. Pretty decent offroad to

You wheel 3-4 times a week? Wow. Lots of good a/t's out there, DuraTracs are a nice option.
