Pic Request - 2dr Rubicon w/ 32" BFG ATs with 15" Black Rims

I know it's specific, but it's exactly what I'd like to see.
Thanks in advance

Maybe someone can photoshop this for you, as this is a specific request!

The huge calipers are why most people have rubbing problems with 15" wheels on JKs:




Some people grind their calipers to make 15" wheels fit.

After first trying to fit 15" wheels, I decided to go with 17" wheels on 35" tires with a Teraflex 2.5" BB with stock shock extentions and high clearance Xenon polyurethane flares:



I still need to paint the body black under the flares.







Why so intent on not adding a BB to your stock suspension?

really want to keep the same 32" tire height so the 4.10 gears are sufficient and the engine keeps the reminants of pep that it has ^^

but I totally agree, 35s look incredible! thanks for the pics

V-Powered, out of curiosity, what lift did you use? did you just stick a 3/4" spacer in the front or do a full 2" bb?

I installed a Black Diamond 2" spacer lift. That's it. These Pro-comp wheels are perfect for the JK...no issues anywhere.

Since you seem like you're interested in the look WITHOUT a lift...i had the tires on about 2 weeks before i did the lift. Here is what it looked like before the 2" lift.



Personally, i like the look lifted up- plus now with my 8" KC pillar lights, it doesn't look wierd sitting too low.

V-Powered, did you rub any? I thought the FAQ deemed it impossible to run 33s with no life. It looks better with the bb, but thanks for posting the pics!

JeepRocks86, I had a XJ with 15s and 32s and loved the beefy look it had. The taller sidewalls are just my preference.
