My dad has 32s on wheels that ''appear'' to have as much backspacing as stock wheels.

Yes, I beleive it can be done.

Pretty certain you will have rubbing issues due the stock wheel backspacing.

32" tires will fit "under" a stock jeep ... the issue will be depth (backspacing) on canyon wheels. You will probably need some wheel spacers to make it work.

With an 11.50 tire, your backspacing on a wheel should be no more than 4.5 inches. Look at getting some 1.25 inch wheel spacers to safely run those tires.

you will have rubbing at full lock, also any kind of wheeling will cause rubbing

I rub with 33x10 on stock moabs, 5.0 BS where your stock canyons, have 5.5 BS. I can almost guarantee they will rub.

You can get wheel spacers or wait and do everything at once.

I have 31x10.5 Buckshots on Canyon wheels, I put 1" spacers on my TJ because the tire was soooooo close to the rear spring seat and I had very minor rubbing at full lock. I now have the same tires, wheels and spacers but added a RC 2.5 kit and could easily clear 32's with no problem at all.

Mine are 32x11.50 on stock rims. I had to add some washers behind my bolts that limit how far my wheels turn. Otherwise they will rub pretty good during hard flex with your wheels turned.

I did it on my '98 TJ with the stock Gamblers (5.75" backspacing IIRC) -- added a washer or two to the steering stops to prevent lock-to-lock rubbing. Had about a quarter to half inch clearance to the rear spring perch, which was fine on the street. Offroad I always aired down which allowed the tire to shrink (like a balloon) giving me adequate clearance from the spring perches. Had a slight amount of rubbing (just enough to 'shine the paint') on the front CAs during full articulation.

This was with BFG muds, a RE 3.5" lift on a 4.0l, auto, D44 equipped '98. YMMV.
