Yeah, I just used a cheap one that I found off of ebay. It didn't really have to be realiable see as it only holds the tire in place.

If you flex it you WILL rub. I rubbed my 31"s with the 2.25in lift. Great looking jeep!

my adapters are 1.5" and with 2.25" lift and 2 washers no rubbing during turning or flexing.

Not only rubbed the flare, but also bent the fender on the right front.


A set of these should do the trick:

I haven't really flexed that much yet, but even what you were doing in that pick will be more that I will probably do.

Either way, what are the bumps that bought? I will check into them. I have a 3" Body lift that I have yet to install.

I bought 5 wheel adapters. It's tight( I lift up on the wheel as I close the door) but fits just fine...

This is a bad cell phone pic. I'll get more later.

315/70/17's with a 4.5" longarm lift and 1" BL. I need to trim the rear spring buckets a tad. The 1.5" spacers were not quite enough.

Very nice man. I picked up my 2010 JK Wheels and tires for the same price. I love that JK owners are just giving these away for such a great price. I would have loved to have found the charcoal set like you found. Beautiful looking Jeep by the way and now those wheels really set off the color and look great. Awesome color combination, good choice man.

Teraflex makes an adapter for bigger tires that has a 4.5x5 and a 5x5 wheel pattern. I picked one up for $29 yesterday.

Dude try over $1200 just for the tires. Throw in another grand or $1200 for the rims and we are making out very nice with these deals.
