Re: Rim Offset question - Lifted WK
When I had my BB installed I had, Dick Cepek DC-1 on the back spacing was something like 4.5" and boy did the tire stick out and I still had to do the pinch weld mod; I was running 265/70/17.
I did upgrade to the OME HD and when the jeep was having it installed, the shop told me that the clear coat was haevily come off one of my rims. So, long story short, I got new rims (free). When I researched rims for the jeep, I like you, like the beefy look but did not want my tires sticking out 2". AEV had discontinued the rims I like but the spec on the rim was a 5.3" BS. So I searched and searched and found that KMC XD offered rims in a similar BS. I had to sacrifice the look I wanted to get the BS I needed and went with the XD Addict.
Now , as for the pinch weld mod; you may still have to do it. I don't know, I already had it done. But I am running 275/70/17 with no rubbing on the ome hd lift.
