Can somebody do me a huge favor and do the old rear tuck test for me? I am running the 2.5" OME with .5" lift with OE YJ shackles. I am wanting to run either 265/75 16 or a 285/75 16 on a 16x8 wheel.....so basically a 32 x 10.50 vs. a 32.8 x 11. Is anyone running these sizes or close to them? I will not run anything wider that 11" wide.....so no 12.50s. So if somebody is either running a 32x11.50 15, or a 33x10.50 15, that would be close enough to let me know how much room I have at the rear corner of the rear fenders. Any help or pics would be greatly appreciated! Thanks innadvance. This is a for a 85' CJ.
I'm away from my Jeep at the moment but I have 32x11.50 BFG's on it and I can show a picture with a 3 inch lift from Black Diamond looks like. Further more, a 32" tire is almost exactly the same diameter as the rear wheel opening in the tub and is the reason I used 32" tires instead of 33".
I would think yes...FWIW, the Rubicon Express guys back in the day said I could run 33" tires no problemo...I wasn't so sure about that and my trutrac's were only rated up to 32" tires so I went with the 32" size...

My '80 CJ7 with 2 1/2" soft ride suspension lift and 33x12.50's never had a problem and have been all or Colorado on all the trails. Heck I've even pulled my 16' car hauler trailer (empty) with no problem.
