Cepek Wheels and Tires

Hey Guys, I am planning on running Dick Cepek Trail Country Tires, size
LT285/70R17 (33X11.50R17)
and Dick Cepek Torque Wheel 17 X 8.5 on a 2015 Willys Wheeler with stock suspension.

Does anyone see any problems with that setup?

Thank you.

Re: Cepek Wheels and Tires

You're going to need at least 4.5" of backspacing on the wheels. From what I've researched those wheels have 5" so you should be good.

You won't need to lift it, stock height can clear those wheels fine. I used to run a similar setup on my 2012 Rubicon Unlimited. No rubbing on daily driving, and very very very little when I've maxed it out offroading. It will work for you however keep in mind you might feel like you'll want to put on a small lift later down the road to complete the look.
