Just ordered Borah's. Can someone confirm that these will work on my JLUR with a 3.5 MC lift without spacers? I have 315/ 70 R17 BFG AT KO2's. Pictures of how they got would be great. Thanks.

Pretty sure these have a 3.5" backspace. If so, they'll work with the vast majority lift / wheel setups.

Same wheels and tyres on AEV 2” lift with Rubi shocks and springs to gain an extra inch. Paul

Do you have the Galaxy Black with the Onyx ring?

Thanks

Yes, I wanted all black originally but I think they turned out OK
You made the correct choice I think. I like the slight contrast difference in the wheel and ring. Plus those silver ring bolts make it pop.

WOW. That backspacing would make it a challenge on my rig. RK recommends 3.5 and I know I rub with 4.5 BS.
MC recommendation is due to the relocated shock mounts but isn't clear if this statement is for all JL or just Sport/Sahara and the Rubicon number is slightly less due to the wider axle length.
"IMPORTANT NOTE: If using OE wheels 2" spacers will be needed to give proper clearance. These mounts are intended for use for wheels with 4.5" of backspacing or less or an equivalent of a 2" spacer on factory wheels."

Why not just add spacers?

Is the 4.5" backspace a requirement for the Rubicon and other models need more?

I am upgrading the wheels so I can get rid of the spacers to begin with...

I know there have been several discussions on spacers yes or no...

What if you used the AEV Borah for JK. 4.9" backspace on those

Hadn't considered that...will look into it. They suggested 4.75 to be safe and have options to go bigger tires in the future. Thanks.

On My JK, MC said you needed 4.5" BS wheels but I ran AEV Pintlers (5.2" BS) with 35s and had no rubbing.
