I have an IRO 3" lift on my WJ. I'm currently running a 245/70/16 tire, and am thinking about bumping up to a 32". I imagine I'll have to trim the bumper a bit, and possibly extend the bump stops. Thoughts?
I'm currently using a 16" wheel with 4"BS. Would it be better to use a 15", or would the 16" give me a bit more ground clearance at the cost of bumper modification?
I'm running the same rims with the IRO 3". IRO states you can run the 265 75-16's on STOCK RIMS. I ended up settling for the 265 70-16's and still had plenty of trimming to do because the backspacing pushed the tire out farther increasing the contact with the fender and bumper on turns. Had I stayed with the stock rims I could see how the 32's would work. I have a 3/4" coil spacer on the front too.
I still rub, but I am waiting for warmer weather to get out and do some more trimming. The MTR's I am running are not helping with the rub as they are 30.9".
I just put 265/75/16s on my wj with 4" of lift and front long arms (axle centered) and 16x8 unique 297s. No rubbing and no trimming.
At flex (going from driveway to road at angle) and wheel turned slightly there is about 1/4" space between tire and pinch seam.
i am running 32.25in on 4in of lift with a 3/4 spacer up front and mine are rubbing with stock bs i'm trimming a good amount
