Let’s just say I looked at this thread at least 10 times prior to pulling the trigger...
Fuel Maverick 18x9’s with 1mm offset.
275/70/18 Falken Wildpeaks and overall, I couldn't be happier! Well, except for two pressure sensors not reading
Pics don't do any justice- looks so much better in person.
Does anyone know if the 275/70/r17 do better with the gearing?Darn, the 275s are really a 32" so I was hoping they would fare better better without a re-gear than the 33s. I wish there was an option for 3:73s.
They obviously did the math too, and are luring people to Rubicon, or atleast us lazy guys
Thanks. Let me know how that goes. Mike is a daily driver and I do no off roading. I would like just a bit of a wider stance so I may be going with the Quadratech Recons. I don’t want to lose the stock look and want to make sure the ride stays the same and gear shifts are correct especially on highway. I have a Sahara and stock is 255/70/r18. When comparing the 275/70/r17, they are the exact height but a little wider. I was hoping it didn’t mess with the gears and the MPH. It doesn’t look like the mph affected too much. Here’s a comparison.Well I'm looking at the new Toyo Open Country AT3 in LT275-65-18 Load C for my Sahara. Keeps stock diameter, just widens and beefs it out a bit. I have the 6sp, so hopefully these don't F things up too much, yes better gearing would be nice but I'm not getting into that. They are 8-10 LBS more than the stock duelers
hey there! How does it drive on the highway? I’ve heard a lot of 7th / 8th gear hunting even in a small hill or mild head wind. What are your thoughts? I’m willing to adjust a bit of course, But don’t want to lose a gear at 70mph. Speedo issues are not a concern. I may gee a Tazer Mini to calibrate.I put 33” on my stock rims, works great, drives great. 275/70-18.
Does adding muflaps help? Here in Ontario, they never give us issues with tires sticking out but if it does, just ensure the mudflap covers the entire width of the rear tire.Read a bunch of things about wheels and tires. I know the tire size I want, but ultimately my state inspection rules won't let me run a 20x9 +0 offset. In talking to a few local jeepers last night, if I want to run that wheel in this state, I need to keep my stock wheels for inspections (5 years from now, every 2 years thereafter).
Long story short, they will measure your tire and if it's 1.25" from the fender, you will fail instantly, no ifs ands or buts.
It royally sucks to be honest, but I'll start looking at stuff with a +25 offset now.
honestly, I don't know. I know the inspectors in this state are miserable pricks. Failing people for 1/4" outside state mandates is just nitpicky at best.Does adding muflaps help?

Got an ARB mounting kit specifically for this and its perfect
