Well I am back. I'm sure no one knows who I am but I am back in the Jeep world, excited to say. I sold my YJ a little under a year ago and really have been kicking myself for doing it lately.
I decided to sell my Trailblazer SS (bought after the Lightning was totaled) and come back this time I am in a TJ and love it.
The easy question I have is - the previous owner originally had 33s and downsized to 31x10.5x15 tires on the Jeep now. I want to go at least 33x12.5x15 (would prefer to do 35s actually but not 100% sure yet.)
My question is can I run a 12.5" wide tire on my wheels? They are American Racing 767 Black D Window, it's hard to measure the width of the wheel with the tire on it, but I believe they are 9" wide. I have no idea what the backspace is on them.
I think the width of 9" (if this is correct), is plenty of width for a 12.5" tire, just looking for some backup here.
I apologize for another wheel/tire thread. I have tried to do some searching.
