35s on my stock Rubi wheels rub?

Is there enough backspacing on my stock Rubi wheels with 375/75/16 = 35s without rubbing. Currently I am running 35x12.5x15 on a 15x10 rim with 4" backspacing. They clear just fine, but stick out like a SOB.

IMO , no way

265/75/r16 rub slightly on mine at full turn

moab (rubi tj) wheels 16 x 8 , have 5" backspace

alot of people use these wheels with that tire size you want, but with wheel spacers.

Nope....buy some steelies with the proper back spacing, like 3.75. I don't even think a 1.25 spacer would help you with those tires, and would cost nearly as much as new steel wheels.

i know 2 people with these

dont pay attention to "84-01 Jeep" description
that makes no sense. the bolt pattern is the same up to 2006

that will get you to 3.75" backspacing on the moabs, which is a good # for those tires.

Ok I got some new 315/75/16 Duratracs mounted on my MOABs. 1.5" spacers worked perfect. Now what PSI should I run these at ? The shop put in around 34psi and they seemed hard. I dropped them down to 30PSI and going to run them like that today. Opinions? Thanks.
