Let me see your 3.75bs with 1.25 or 1.5 wheel spacers

Doesn't matter the height of tire but I would like to see 12.50 with 1.25 wheel spacers and 3.75 backspacing pics. I want to see how wide they are.

The PO had that combo on my Rubicon. I quickly removed the spacers. The wheels were shoved out way to far, even with 6 inch flares on, a good two or three inches protruded. The Jeep was so wide it hardly fit into my garage door and I kept running into curbs. I have no idea why he put them on but they are gone, gone, gone and all is well and better without.

You must have some narrow streets and a tiny garage. I currently have 1.25" spacers and 4" BS wheels and have yet to hit any curbs. With 6 inch flares, about 1" of tread sticks out.

With that said I will be taking the spacers off when I get a chance to drill a set of drums at work. I am running a 5x5.5" bolt pattern (Front axle was a full width D44 that I narrowed) and adapters/spacers were my solution to different bolt patterns at the time. I feel that they put too much leverage on the axle shaft flange when used with a wheel with already lower back spacing.

No not really. The extra 1.25 inches per side plus the width of 35 X 12.5 tires and 3.75 wheels puts the tire sidewalls too far out for my taste. Garage seems reasonable sized.

I had more issues barely fitting into single car garages height wise than width wise and I have a relatively low rig.

OP: If I remember I'll snap a picture tomorrow just so you can see how wide it is.

3.75 BS on 15x8 35x12.5 Mtrk narrow posion spider fenders



it will toss a tail in the rain with all 4 right at you and if its mud, better have the doors on.

No wheel spacers. The rims are at 3.75bs that would be like a 2.25 spacer on a stock wheel. from wheel to wheel it is about 79" wide.

Why on earth do you want your tires to stick out that far? I have 3.3" BS wheels with 35x12.5" tires and they are already wayyyy out there. No way I'd put another inch spacer on there.

You'll be going through wheel bearings pretty damn fast, and your brakes will be in harms way in the rocks.

This is with a TJ D44, 15"x8" 4" BS wheels, 35x12.5R15 MTRs and 1.25" spacers.

The last photo is measured from the same size lug on the other rear tire.
