Will stock wheels with 33s work?

Hey all, I picked up a 88 XJ and I want to do a 4" lift with 33" tires but I kinda like my stock rims. Can I run that size of tire with stock rims or will the offset be too shallow to fit that big a tire?

The stock rims have to much backspacing, your going to rub.

That all depends on width. A 10.5" wide tire would work

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

Would the 10.5 rub The LCA even with the spacers? Also I'm looking at a RC 3" lift that comes with new LCA's. Will it even be an issue then?

you can get a zone 4.5" for 100.00 bucks more. Search rockridge 4wd here on the forum. You get a full kit including shocks. I got mine from them and love it. Way better than that ebay RC kit. O he also sells RC with a better discount than ebay too.

No, it has to do with having the right backspacing. Spacers simply change the backspacing on your existing wheels.

Aside from backspacing, stock rims are only 7" wide and not a good choice for typical 33x12.5x15 tires. They would be fine for less common (but still easily found) 33x10.5x15 tires.


IF you run a 12.5" tire
-A 12.5" wide tire would crown too much on a 7" rim causing middle of the tread wear unless you ran low air pressure which fatigues the sidewall.

You would be better running a 8" wide wheel for a 12.5" tire.

If you run a 10.5" tire
-the 7" stock rim would be fine once you added spacers to eliminate rub.

If you buy a lift kit - full length AAL or new leaf packs is a must - no blocks, no lift shackles on STOCK leaf packs.

I'm sorry, I'm still learning. What's a AAL?
