35mm should do the job. There are some pics here of Rhino wheels 20x9 +35 with 285/50/20 that sit nicely in the fenders.

Guys,

Each of you have installed a 32" x 10.83" tire on your factory wheels. One a 275/65r18 and the other a 275/55r20.

2011Hemi, I am not sure if you have QL. I know that getoutandplay has QL.

Since the time of your original posts have either of you experienced any problems with the 32" tire in your stock setup? More curious about when turning in a circle and things like that.

My reason for asking...
I installed the Rocky Road 2.5" Spacer Lift (you may have seen my post) and I am baffled on what size tires I can truly fit.

Rocky Road's website insists that a 275/55r20 (32" x 10.83") is the largest tire that will fit even with the lift. Obviously, there is plenty of room in there for a taller tire if one were to drive in only straight lines. But, I am unable to determine the amount of room for turning.

I would like to put a 275/60r20 (32.99" x 10.83") tire in there and I do not want to use spacers. I am not adverse to trimming the inner felt fender if needed.

Could either of you, or anyone else with a 32" tire and stock rim, take some photos inside your fender showing the amount of room with your 32s?

I'd really appreciate it.

Now what is the off set you're running on those? Do they stick out much if at all beyond the wheel wells/flares?

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Was in my local Jeep place and found a set of 18" Sahara wheels and tires for $500. So now, whats the current opinion on tire sizes for JGC Overland. I'm thinking 265/65-18 or staying with the 255/70-18. Whats the difference in offset-setback from the stock wheels and what sizes are being run?

Rolexjake has the same size tire and similar wheel on his non QL and it fits without issues. You can see pics in the wheel and tire thread here. I think the non QL jeeps acutally ride a bit higher in the front, so you will be fine.

Yes, your speedo will read low by 3%. It is about 2mph at 70mph (reads 70, actually running 72). I've checked mine against a GPS and that is pretty accurate.
