As might have deduced from my earlier question about tire pressure sensors, I'm getting new tires. Here's what I think I'm doing:
Tires: 35x17x12.5 Goodyear MTR Kevlar
Wheels: Quadratec Moab-Style 17x8.5 w/4.7" backspacing
Tire carrier: Teraflex JK HD Hinged Carrier.
Now comes the other part: Space for the tires. Right now I have the AEV 2" spacer lift. AEV claims you can't do 35's with this lift. But I look at the bump stops and they look the same as on AEV's 2.5" spring lift, where they say you *can* run 35's. Huh? If I sawzall or BFH the pinch seam weld it should clear, it seems to me...
I could, of course, put some flat flares like Bushwackers on it and then there's no problem at all... but given how much $$$ I'm spending on the above, you can see why I"m a bit reluctant to spend more money on that right now
. I guess I'll put it on, flex it out, and see what happens. Unless someone else has already done that for me?
