tire/rim help needed asap im lost and belle tire cant help...

can i run a 255x75x17 on a 17x9 inch rim with 10mm bs?

i dont want to run them for more than a year. upgrades coming soon.. but i have a trip this weekend and need rims. i just dont want to have to buy new ones when i upgrade to 35s.

i have an 06 with a 2.5 rock crawler lift. i just want to know if 9" is too wide or if i can make it work. i also am not sure 10mm is a good number for back spacing...

any help is appreciated. i need to get them ordered today to make it for next weekend.

thanks all!

10 mm backspacing? Maybe you mean 10 cm and that would be about 4 inches. Backspacing for a CJ5 is usually 3.75, so those could rub. Is the bolt pattern 5x5.5?

He could have ment offset at 10mm. I think backspacing is much more important though in this application.

It should be like -10mm for a 35x12.5. or BS of at least 4.5. But +10 would nead spacers i believe. The 9 inch rim is going to be wide for a stock tire, factory is 7.5. Will work but i would not air that down. Check the back space metric i thought was like in the -10/-15 range. Or measure the inside face of the rim to the bead for backspace in inches. most all Jk run from 3.75-4.5 of backspace for any 12.5 wide tire will work.

Hi, I really don't have much of idea about this but yes whenever I need some help or suggestions related to my car, I refer www.automotix.net for solutions. I have always had good and satisfactory results by following the instructions in the DIY section of the website. Really worth reading.
