Took my lifted (3.5" RE) to get my 265/75's mounted and guess what? They don't fit. lol Makes me start to wonder if many of the people who post on here really know what they are talking about. The fronts fit great but the rears.....not so much. When the jeep was on the hoist( suspension at full flex) the tires couldn't even be put on the rotors/hub as they bumped the front of the wheel well. The garage didn't know what to do so I told them to lower the jeep and jack it up by the pumpkin so the suspension flexed back into the wheel well. Voila...they were able to mount the tires so that I could at least drive it home. Will be ordering new control arms to rectify this problem. So FYI....you can not put that size tire on a 3.5" lift without control arm changes. Sounds like maybe the fronts rub a little bit somewhere but until I can get the rear adjusted properly I wont be driving it.
I'm pretty sure that even 31's would not have fit that lift. OH well. Live and learn.
Now...I won't be lifting this jeep any higher so should i get adjustable control arms or just the longer ones?
31"s fit fine on 3.5" lift. My 31 measure 31.1 inches. soooooo yah lol
I could fit 33/10.5 easily if i wanted to
