Just posted this here too. I had rub in the same place with the 31x10.5's that came on my stock TJ... a few washers fixed that. Lose just a c-hair of the turning radius but can go to full lock no worries now. That's the only 2 cents I can respond with here, the rest is stuff I'm trying to learn about too

boogieman, that looks cool just because of the tire/jeep ratio look lol. but yes, articulation is VERY important as i spend more time in skinny trails barely making turns than mudding. so a 32" with my 2" lift on spare tires, spare backspacing, would not limit any articulation, full steering radius, etc?

and also, im 17 and my jeep is my daily driver so it needs to be good onroad, but i take it offroading alot. im in central florida, so not much extreme articulation like rock crawling, but mostly sand, mud, dirt, and the occasional technical trail that requires the jeep barely squeezing in and flexing.

Chris Durham In Moab 40′s no lift chris durham motorsports

Based on that, I'd say 42" tires are the max you can run with a 2" BB.

Years ago, I ran 32" tires on my stock TJ for a year and had a lot of fun on the trails.

Here is my 31"s 10.5 on 2 inch lift. I didn't want to stuff the wheel wells with rubber and lose turning radius. I wanted to go to 32" BFG/AT but couldnt find any. so 31's for this year, and maybe for the next couple of years as these tires last a long time.

Hopefully this setup will work well for my overland expedition.

Was running 34x9.5s ,Im running 34x10.5 ltbs currently, but tube fenders and some trimming were required, those ltb 34s run small too, closer to 33 in diameter. still kisses the controlarms and frame a tiny bit when fully stuffed but im too lazy to adjust the steering stops. would rub the front swaybar if I still had one.

ive been looking around and 32" tires for 15" rims seem to be rare, mostly 31 and 33. id like to upgrade to 33 if i could, but im worried about the steering rubbing. what if i added these?

I put on 285/75/16s (33") with a 2" BB and had some rubbing at turns so I looked into wheel spacers and ended up buying Spidertrax. Definitely recommend them. You want wheel spacers that are hub-centric, not sure if the ones you posted on eBay are like that. Recommend reading up a bit on them. Some folks say some scary things about them, but I read about scary things happening to wheels with folks that don't have wheel spacers. If you get them torqued right and check them periodically they should be just fine. And they gave me my turning radius back and make for a wider stance.

Right now I'm running 32x11.5 with 4in backspacing and a 2.25" BB. I'm fine at full turn both ways but did take it wheeling this weekend and did experience some rubbing.

Can you post a pic of those 34x10.50s? I've been seriously considering going to a pizza cutter 34 or 35 rather than the more common 33x10.50.
