Jeep Offroad Modification and Spacer Questions

So,

Ive got an opportunity to get a set of 5 BFG MTs on MOABs for $900. Only 100 miles on them, and I want to pounce on them, but will these fit my WK with a 2" OME lift without spacers? Could I just trim the bolt, or could I clear without any modifications?

Thanks,
WK05

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

I will let the offroad guys handle the answer but I would think you need to specify the size of the tires.

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

Yup!!!!!!! get them fast. Only thing you have to get is 1/4inch spacers for the rims to clear the calipers... if you don't want to do this.. gimme the info and ill buy them!

As far as the bolt.. you should be ok.. but trimming it and doing the pinch weld fold isn't hard and you gain alot of clearance.

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

What spacers are you talking about? And would you mind explaining how to trim, cut and pinch weld?

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

Where can I get these spacers? What are the best, and is the pinch fold mod, and trimming the bolt necessary? If so, are there any threads on doing so?

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

So are they really needed? Either way I am going to buy the wheels, and If I need Spacers later, then I will buy them. Now the debate on what spacers, and where to get them, and in what size?

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

By the way, I am down with trimming the bolt, but not the pinch weld fold due to the location next to the airbag censor.

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

They are needed, otherwise the wheel won't fit. I can't seem to find the site where you can make a set of spacers to the thickness you want...or place that has 1/4 inchers...sigh.

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

You NEED the spacers. I'm running Spidertrax 1.25".

Re: Jeep Offroad Modification

Those really might be the only readily available spacers at that... Those will be what I'll end up getting.
