    After reading this entire thread like 3 times I think I know the answer but wanted to check to see if anyone is running a similar setup and what they thought, pics, etc.........

    I want to put KO2s 315/70x17 on 8.5" rims that have -6 offset and 4.5 back spacing. JL Rubicon with 2.5" mopar lift.
    By my calculations I will be 2.6" farther out than the stock 33s that are on there now.
    Is that sticking out too far? What effect will it have? Concerns?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    That sounds about right. I'm on stock rims with the same tire and it sits to far in, Going to 38's and likely going the same size rim you are. Remember the outer bulge is not the tread. I just did a quick look and from tread to bulge is about 3/4 inch so I'm subtracting that from the 2.5 and getting 1 3/4 inches past the flares.

    How far you want the tread sticking out is both a person and a legal issue. I want it just out a bit and for ME the 1 3/4 is acceptable. However mud flinging will be more of a problem for sure and you need to check your laws about going over.
