Hi All - sorry if this is already in here, I scanned photos and just got more and more nervous along the way.

I’m trying to determine if the wheels I just bought will work for what I’m going for.

JLU Sahara
Ridge Grappler 35x12.5r17

The wheel backspacing is 4.3”

Any idea (photos would be amazing!!!) how much I’ll be sticking out? I like to go past the fenders a bit, but not too much. I know, that’s totally subjective... if anyone has photos as examples for 4.3” backspace with 12.5 I’d be super grateful.

Wow. Looks awesome. The amount of tire bulge there is perfect.

Would you mind sharing more photos from more angles including down the sides to show how much they stick out from the fenders?

Why are the letters in reverse position?
I did a pic flip to give a better comparison of them facing the same direction, so it put it in reverse. Also, no fuel door lol

Very nice! I had the Geolandars in a 38" on one of my JK's and I agree with you.... They were nearly silent, and rode very nice! Looks like they updated to a much more agressive look, it's nice to hear that they were able to keep the noise down at the same time.

Seeing your factory sport wheels with bigger tires makes me regret ordering new wheels for my wifes sport. I should have just upgraded the tires, it looks great!

How is the ride(are they E-Rated?) I've been considering the C-Rated KO2's for her vehicle, but these look so nice.

So, a question for you: How does it ride with the EVO 2.5 lift? Did you get it with the shock extensions? I had pulled the trigger on a Skyjacker 3.5-4" Lift kit late last week, but actually cancelled my order this morning... just worried that it would be too extreme for my use case. Interested to hear what you think of this kit and how it rides with the 37" tires.
Ride is like stock.
The key is to get caster back to positive with the optional lower control arms. I have always found that my tire choice impacts the ride more than my suspension. That assumes you don't go over the top with heavy duty springs and shocks...

Great to hear. I got the EVO 2.5” Stage 3 lift with shock extensions. It includes the adjustable lower front and upper rear control arms. Now just waiting for our JLUR to be delivered to the dealership so I can install the lift, Mopar tailgate reinforcement and spare tire relo kits, then 17” wheels and 37” tires... still deciding on those two items.

Finally the wait is over. Straight into the shop for a Rough Country lift and Method Racing 305’s and 37” Nitto Ridgegrapplers. Loving it so far.

TheTPMS sensors aren’t working though so i gotta get that figured out

Are those quadratec wheels? They look great, I like them way better than the stock Rubi wheel.

Tires are E load, and you can tell, but it doesn’t bother me. I think a slightly worn KO is louder than the G003.
