What size rim/tires were you running with your BB? And are those the Rugged Ridge Wheels?

I was running the same wheels as I am now, they did rub at full lock a bit especially when backing up. They are american racing crush rims, 17x8 and the tire size is in the first post. Once these wear out I am going to a 31 - 32 inch silent armor on the same rim. Working on a D44a swap right now to get my gearing up to 3.73 for the larger tire size.
