2012 jeep wrangler wheel selection

I have a 2012 wrangler unlimited with 2" coil spring spacers and 2" wheel spacers. I bought a set of 285 75 16 11.33" wide mudstars, and looking at the tuff at (all terrain) 16x8" rims with a possible 10 offset, I am not sure these rims are right for me, does anyone have any input on how this will compare to the stock steel 16x7 wheels I have on there now? Will the tires stick out further with the tuff rims or the stock rims? I'm trying to get he widest stance for stability and clearance without too much load on the lugs, any input would be appreciated! Thanks!

Well bro what you need is a negative offset wheel that way you can lose the spacers. I would look at a -6 or -12. An. I would look to go wider on the wheel as well. Like for example I have 295/70/17s which is 12 inches wide and I run a 9 inch wide wheel. I ran a 285/70/17 on the same wheel with no issues. Check mine out

i ended up doing -12mm or 4.00" rims with the 2 inch coil spacers and 2 inch wheel spacers on 285 75 16, hows that going to work out you think?

That's the equivalent of running a 10" + wide rim. Lose the wheel spacers or order some curb feelers. Que the mariachi music!
