Help w/ Wheel & Tire purchase
 
I will be insatalling my new 4" Currie lift over the next day or so and want to get a set of 35's on my Rubi. Looking at Toyo Open Country MT 315/75R-16 and some 16x 8.5 wheels with 4.5 backspacing. I am having a very hard time finding much less of backspacing without going to 17".

I would like to hear what you are running

Why not 15" rims?

15x8 ProComp alloys (9069, I think), with ProComp Xtreme MT/2, 33x12.50

Go with 15" wheels and the tires will be cheaper.I always go with 3.75" backspacing.

I think 4.5" is the minimum he can get away with.

Does a Rubicon require 16" rims because of the rear disc brakes ?

hey that's a pretty good question I don't know the specific answer to...but my D44 with discs fits a 15...but mines not a rubi either.

If I was a betting man, I'd say they're the same.

Stick with 15" wheels or go to a 17" wheel.

16s are becoming less popular.

Looking at the BFG KM2's they weight around 60 lbs amd the Toyo's are 76 lbs a bit of a difference, is that a concern ? I know everone is into less weight

tyvanwie 06-10-2013 11:11 AM

I doubt you'll notice 64lbs.
