Usually you would want a backspacing of 4.5 or offset of -12, and 17" so the weight is less than a 18". The wheel offset calculator web site or the other wheel offset calculator site have useful information.I'm looking at the Mopar 2" lift to stay under warranty and 35 or 37 BFG K0/2's. Wheels have me a bit confused. Should I go 17 or 18, what is the offset. etc?
Check out "JL Journal: Does a 2.5" lift with 37" tires on a Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon" on YouTube. I found it really informative.What about 37's with the Mopar 2 inch lift kit?
Thanks, I'm headed to YouTube right now.Check out "JL Journal: Does a 2.5" lift with 37" tires on a Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon" on YouTube. I found it really informative.
I went with the 2" Mopar lift and .75" Rough Country spring spacers on the front. 37x12.5x17 BF Goodrich KM2 tires on 17" Warlord wheels. My JLUR is scheduled for ship date of 6/16, so i'll find out if it all works out soon hopefully.
I'm about 49.999% convinced to go 37's. I can live with the MPG's, just concerned about the 2 inch lift being adequate and any future effect on gearing.I went with the 2.5" Readylift so all the stock suspension is still in play. Running the rubber down on my JLUR 33s before splurging for 35s. The 33s look small in the wheel well to be honest after I put the lift on but don't regret doing the lift first as I already have benefited on the clearance when it came to some challenging portions of the trails. Without the 2.5" lift I was kicking the crap out of my skid plates. I get it thats what they are there for but it always concerned it may have been the drive shaft or something.
Maybe in a year will splurg for the 35s. On the MPGs I'm averaging 15.5 with the 2.5" lift. Suspecting with the bigger tires it only will be worse. But then again do we own a Rubicon for the MPGs?
