Re: New Wheels + Tires / Finally Installed
I would like to thank the good advice I got from some members of the JeepGarage Community.
I finally got the 2.125" Rocky Road lift installed with the new set of MAMBA MR1 17x8 5x5 +6mm offset wheels and 265/70/R17 Yokohama Geolandar tires.
I had some doubts in choosing these tires against the 285/70/R17 Mickey Thompson BAJA ATZ. If I would have got the choice of 265 then it could have worked but in my opinion the 285 with 2.125" lift are just too big.
As I was advised earlier the pinch weld mod had to be made and there was no way I could avoid this modification. Any way it wasn't that difficult to do it (I have some pics for those who would be interested on this process)
It is correct that with +6mm offset wheels the spacers are no needed unless you really want to pull your tires out of the fender level more than 1".
I though I would share some pictures of the "before and after". Definitely I am satisfied with the new out come as a whole (look, driving, height, etc)
My next step will be to replace all the suspension bushings so if somebody knows where to find a complete (sway bar and control arms) bushing kit please let me know. Thanks!...
