It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

I installed Hella 500FF lights and some front tow hooks. Hopefully new shocks, steering stabilizer and rear brakes tomorrow.

Lucky with those stock wheels. I have a 2.5" BB and my tires are only 30.4" tall (31x10.50) but because they are on 15x8s with a 3.75 backspace they hit even the metal part of the fender badly when turning. I had to trim the bumper a lot, remove the washer fluid bottle, fog lights and cut the fog bezels down. BFH fixed the rubbing on the fender temporarily (barely clears) but I am going to cut it out about 3" all the way around the front fenders anyway.

Took mine to get the tires re-seated. Both fronts had slow leaks. When the guy pulled the rubber off the rim... Wow. I should have took a pic for you guys. The crud that was on there was thick. The aluminum rims really corrode quick here in Chicago.
I never had to do that when I lived down south.

I ran those lights, briefly. Some bastage snagged the bulbs from out of them while it was parked in my driveway one night. I contacted Hella to see what replacements would cost, and the guy that answered did what he could and sent out a set for free. I sold them. Excellent lights though. :-)

If you had steel wheels they would have had holes in them LOL. Aluminum wheels hardly corrode except in the worst conditions imaginable.

The 265/70/17s will work on stock wheels except they might rub your rear shock (might need a 6-8 mm wheel spacer). I know the stock 235/65/17s are not far from rubbing on mine. I have tons of room now with 3.75 BS wheels.

What about the 285/70/17? 33.3" I was going to put them on my factory 17's but got moabs instead.

Rough country makes a rear shock relocation kit that would fix the tire rubbing on the shock with stock backspace wheels and wider tires, A 285 on the stock 17s would likely need a 10-15 MM spacer to clear the shock.

Yeah. I've got 1.5" wheel spacers and when I put em on, you could really see the gap widen between the shock and tire.

ive got those relocater peices but im guess im just trying to decide if i can just run stock wheels,
Im only at 4 inch, i think the 32's will be better and for the extra 1/2" of diff clearance i would need to trim alot, unless i add 3/4 inch spacers to bring it to almost 5 inch lift
