Tires and Wheels

Currently running 35x12.5R15LT tires on 15x10 wheels with 3.625" backspacing. Cant turn from stop to stop
so I have to take sharp turns with caution. Any suggestions on things I can do to get full steering back?

If you're okay with the turning radius that is available with your setup now the stops can be changed to that so your tires don't hit suspension. They are two bolts that can either be turned out or replaced with longer bolts.

Any wheels with less backspacing in your lug pattern.

3.25" oughta do it, but you should measure.

Wheel spacers would be your cheapest option.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

Quick question;
Do wheel spacers increase the likelihood of breaking an axle, especially with either a Dana 30 or 35?
