OK, so I got my 2" lift on with the 32" *****stones and I am getting some minor tire rub at full lock on the inside. I think I will just leave it to wear in...... I had to trim the ball joint bolt but the pinch weld clears. Had to re-aim my headlights and get a front end alignment but I think it is all worth it? Is there a Jeep heaven?

Wrangler owners dump them for smaller rims and mud tires. Nothing wrong with them theY just aren't a great off road rim. I have a set from my Sahara that I will be putting on my WK, CAN'T WAIT.

Well after banging my head for a couple months and flip flopping back and forth I've decided to join the group and put the Sahara wheels AND tires (255/70R18) on and use the Flashpaq to set the speedo and disarm the TPMS. One question though, is there any deformation in the top of the tire during turns or high G cornering that might cause the tire to contact the strut bolt?

I've not had that problem but I did find a small rub on inner frame/fender well when I took my tire off recently. It's so slight I didn't even hear or feel it and there is no mark on tire, only a rub mark on frame.

Superchip flashpaq, allows you to tune for different octanes, off road conditions, read/wipe codes, recalibrate the speedometer for different size tires and more stuff I can't think of. And actually I was thinking of grinding that bolt down, the picture makes it look worse than it is, I can get a finger in between the tire and bolt but it is close.

On second thought and further inspection I think it would be a very bad idea to cut that as I believe that is is used to hold the upper yolk bolt in place while removing the nut.

Anyone with this setup notice much of a drop in fuel economy?

Hey all, my first post on this thread. I've got an '08 WK CRD (see pic) and I'm wondering if I can bolt on a set of 2012 wrangler wheels (see pic). Thoughts? Spacers? Tire pressure sensor issues? I'm in Alberta. Hoping to put winter rubber on the factory wheels and keep the 2012 rims for summer. I need your wisdom!

My 255 70 18 Bridgestones rubbed in the same spot. They were fine untill I put on the 2" lift but I guess the altered angle of the lower control arm brings the wheel in closer to the frame. I just took a BFH and bent the edge of the inner frame/fender in so the sharp edge would not nibble at my tires. I am just putting up with a slight bit of rubbing at full lock for now. It will be worse if you go offroading and the wheel drops down all the way while you are turning at full lock.

tpms rant

So is this like "pre menstrual syndrome" for your tires or just another honest cash grab by the industry and government tax on the stupid? Put a 1/2 inch square piece of black electrical tape over the stupid light and forget about it.

These things are for idiots which we Jeep owners are most definetly not.

In most cases it seams to work but I would test fit first. In my case I was considering wider tires and after test fitting the stock set up from my Sahara I am glad I did not because of that bolt.

They fit, needed 1/4" spacers to keep from rubbing up front. I also have Bilstein 5100 struts up front at 2" and Bilstein 5100 rear with 2" RC coil spacer in rear.
