I had a quick question about the backspacing on those Rubi wheels. You don't appear to have any clearance issues, but was wondering how close things are. From what I've read those wheels have a 6.25" BS. Add your 1.375" spacers and that nets you 4.875" of BS. Not sure if that would be enough BS for my setup if I were to get those wheels. Thoughts?

Jeep looks good, you ever go to a Lone Star Jeep Club meet?

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

Took her down by the lake. Hard to wheel when the only jeep guys I know have small kids and can't get away.

I run them and have flexed it out to max and gone lock to lock with no problems. I can let you know for sure when I go 35's.

Probably the MTR but still undecided. I really want 37's but will be on borrowed tome with the axles and I have bigger things that need my attention. So far with these stock rubi tires I haven't had any issues at all. Love em.

Go check out the forum at LSJC.org
They have regular cruise ins. Also they're going out to Bridgeport on the 17th of this month as a group. Park is ~$30 and you need a Texas OHV sticker ($16).

I just registered but there is no way I am giving them my address. So we will see if I get approved or not.

You may have a hard time finding a 35" tire narrow enough for those wheels.
