That looks like TriCity but doesn’t look like Travis. :movember:
Lol! It was Travis’ day off! Arielle helped me close the sale. It was a great experience. My family likes this Jeep a lot. More than my old YJ was appreciated by all but me

Just threw these 315/70R17s Tires and ProComp 17x9 Wheels on today! No rubbing on road, turns zero both ways just fine. Heading out on trails soon to test them out. I'm going for a classic, retro look for my Jeep so I think the polish wheels turned out nice with the firecracker red Jeep.

What model of ProComp wheels did you get? They need any spacers or anything?

Those are the Series 1069. The 4.75in back spacing has worked perfectly with the tire setup and stock suspension. It never rubbed when it was stock - I am running a 3.5 inch Metalcloak Gamechanger Suspension Lift with these wheels and tires now, and still no issues.

BFG AT KO2 315/70/17's installed on Stock rims. No rubbing on the road. Rides the same. Spare tire mount maybe less than ideal. Bump Stops are hyper compressed. Tire rubbing on Cool Tech CB Antenna mount. Slightly less power to the ground, but not bad. Worlds better than our 2008 JKU with 3.8 and 4 speed trans.

Topless for the weekend, including windshield down for the first time.

Cheers,
James

Do you have more pics? Also any rubbing off road? Looks like on road you are good, also looks awesome

I love the stance, not doing any major wheeling so not sure if a lift is needed for my case.

If i get a lift, i hate the gap so would have to move to 37s.

Thanks!

Full articulation, no rubbing, no lift. Thrilled with the setup. Almost stock, but a little meatier look. Also an inch more ground clearance. Still fits in the garage. Stock spare tire carrier, spare rubs ever so slightly on the metal bumper, which is fine. Bumper provides support for the additional weight.

Years from now maybe I'll get a lift, but that will necessitate 37's.

Cheers,
James

There are a bunch on my garage on this forum. I just traded that one in on a JT Rubicon. I have added a new kid since I bought that two door so I needed four doors now.

I see you are looking for one. This is still for sale at Mtn. View CDJR in Ringgold Georgia right now.
