10" Wheel backspacing?

Looking to go with 33/12.5/15's. I know they could fit on a 8" wheel and the backspacing would be around 4". What backspacing should I use on a 10" and also keeping them tucked in at tight as possible? Looking at going with the Soft 8's.

Thanks

You don't want to go over 4" BS, it doesn't matter how wide the wheel is.

With a 10" wheel there will be no tucking.

I am in the process of removing the 10" wheels from my Jeep.

Atleast twice that I can think of, I attempted to follw the othe TJs in my club down some narrow trails and ended up with my rear tires wedged between a rock wall and a tree.

It was a good laugh for everyone, until a JK joined our group. I then dubbed his Jeep "The Fat Chic" and it stuck.

But, that wasn't the point.

Why do you want 10" wheels?

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

I figured the 12.5 wide tire would fit better on a 10. I'd really like to keep the stock wheels I have, but it looks like the widest I can go with is 10.5. So I figured if I have to get new wheels 10 would be better.

Don't listen to NotURMailman,unless he actually IS your mailman(I heard his wife is on crack JK!).I ran 10" wheels with 4" backspacing with 33's and they stuck out over 3"s.

You're so confusing...

You just said not to listen to me and then repeated what I said in different words.

10" wheels are not going to "tuck". That's all there is to it. 12.50s fit fine on 8" wheels.

You could use wheel spacers and keep your stock wheels.

With wheel spacers, you'll have enough room for 12.50 wide tires.

I know. I go back and forth with that. I'm concerned about the safety of them. Also New Soft 8's are around $250. Wheel spacers are around the same.

Yes, but then you have steel wheels.

Quality spacers properly installed are fine. OEM wheels much higher quality wheel than steel soft 8s.

Yea.... SO I'm guessing Spidermax spacers? Or are something like this http://www.summitracing.com/parts/aa...4123/overview/ with longer studs? What would be stronger. $100 vs $200

You want spidertrax style not those in the link.

I've been running RC spacers (same style as Spidertrax) for over 2 years and have never had an issue, I use blue thread locker on the spacer nuts and torque the lug nuts normally.

A little kicker, most manufacturers will not warrant a 12.5" tire on an 8" wheel.

I've never had the impression that any tire had a warranty, period.

I have the ability to spell correctly, it's just that the autocorrect on my iPad will not permit it.
