alright guys so im tire shopping..i will probably be getting some 16x8 rims for the summer and some BFG long trails..i dont think im gonna lift this zj so do you think i can fit 245/75/16s stock? they measure to be about 30.5, i tried on some 265/75/16 1/2 tread tires on the other day and they scrubbed the front bumper. i wont be discoing the sway bars so no need to worry there..just turning..and no, im not trimming this one

my friend ran 31s with no triming, rubbed a little bit. so 30s should be fine.

Mount system, yes. The plugs look the same. Plug it in and see what happens!

Installed my front lower adjustable control arms, greased her up, found the cause of my P0207/03 (deteriorated/hardened wire insulation) so will be discecting the injector wires and re-taping them to see if that fixes my rough idle.

Stockers are 6 3/4" round. Most speaker replacements for these are 6.5" like purple said. There are adapter brackets that you can fit all kinds of different sizes. Some places give you the adapters when you order new speakers.

installed some new brake shoes and snapped my 4 way lug wrench because the previous owner must have used an impact wrench on the passenger side .... *sigh*
