meaning these should fit
PS. why can I not post pics yet? Also, where did you get, and how much was your lift. Thanks
I'm running 235/60-18" with no rubbing but just as important is the difference in wheel off-set between the stock rims and those TJ rims. Going from memory, the back spacing on the stock 18" are about 43mm but I don't know what it is on the TJ's. I'll' try and do some research and get back to you in a few days on that. The difference between the 235 and 255 from center
is only 10mm (20mm divided by 2), the rest is needed for the difference in backspacing. The 1 1/4" ones may be just the ticket, any less and you may have problems with the wheel studs.
Those SpiderTrax are really top rated spacers! Nice choice.
The only mass produced lift kit available is from Rocky Road Outfitters
, some of us love it and a few thought that added some creaks and groans to the suspension. All in all it's been well received. Once your into the site click on the Patriot listing. Prices are posted there.
