A BB is a budget boost lift like the Rough Country and Grenade Gear is a company that makes amazing stuff. It has since had a name change to JAVRAN and is owned by a JG member with a badass WK.
Local supplier only has imported 17x9, and out of the selection these are the ones I would be going for (assuming all fits well):
In your setup, the wheel sticks out fender side a total of 4 inches plus 6mm (107.6mm), in my targeted setup it would be 4.5 inches minus 6mm (108.3mm) - both measured from the center of the rim. I can't see how there would be a great deal of difference between the 8 inch and 9 inch in this case (0.7mm) ?
Nevertheless, it's always best to test the setup on the actual vehicle, did a quick test with Sahara 17 inch rims and 1.5" spacers with 255/75/17, and the tyre rubbed on both sides wheel lock (lift not yet installed so assume that would make all the difference). Can the wheels in the above link be successfully tested prior to installing the RC 2" lift?
The dilemma is the lift will only go in next week, and I need to purchase the wheels before the end of the week ...
Edit:- I also can't see how I am going to get 265/70/17 tires and the above wheels in without doing a pinch weld, not entirely comfortable doing it but it seems no other choice ?
2nd Edit:- it appears 9" wide wheels is a stretch for 265/70/17... So seems as though I'm going to have to import 17x8 wheels myself or find tires that fit the 17x9 ... Stuck again !
