Lifted ZJ will my tires rub?
Looking to lift my 1994 ZJ with a 4 inch rough country lift kit. I like an aggressive stance and was considering what size wheels and tires to get. Can you run 15x10 wheels with 3.75 backspacing on a 32x11.50 inch tire without having to trim or end up having the tires rub? Or would it be best to go with 15x8 wheel? Thanks everyone. Lifted ZJ pics are always welcome to give an idea how it would look. Thanks

Take a look at this.

I'm on a short-arm 3"-ish lift, running 32x11.50 Fun Country's but I went with 15x8 rims with 4" BS. I only rubbed on the front bumper cover and inner fender liner, which needed a trim to stop.

With that wheel/ tire combination you are going to need to either trim pretty heavily, or add about 3" of bumpstopping to keep the fenders from eating your tires.

I'm at ~3.5" lift 2" bumpstopping, 33 x 12.50 on 8" wide 4" BS wheels and in the front I'm just about rubbing at full flex on bottom of tube.
My front wheel wells have been significantly enlarged, I've cut a lot of body off from under the airbox/ battery, and fenders trimmed along the outer edge of the original flare.

The time now is 02:31 AM.
