Can I clear 32x11.5x15s with only a 2.5 suspension lift (no body lift) on my 2006 TJ?

I have decided to upgrade my stock wheels and tires on my 2006 TJ..I would like to put on a set of 32 x 11.5 x 15's and would like to know if I can clear these wheels with a 2.5 inch suspension lift only. I want to avoid doing any body lift. Assuming my new wheels are okay as far as backspacing, can I clear this size tire?

Yep, 2.5" of suspension lift is perfect for 32x11.50 tires. Make sure to go no wider than 15x8 on your wheels, with backspacing between 5" and no less than 3.75".

You'll have "plenty" of clearance. I ran 32's with no lift for quite a while and only rubbed the flares occasionally.

I'm running 32x11.5x15 on 3.75 backspace wheels with a 2.5 suspension lift and no body lift. It works perfectly for me and keeps my COG low.
