HELP - Will I scrape?
 
Hey guys,

I know I have been killing everyone here about my setup... but here is the deal. I have an 07 WK Diesel. I love her, and almost went the SRT clone route... but decided to go more off-road and rugged for this rig.

That being said... I am getting these:

They are 17" and I want to put on BFG 265/70R17 All Terrain K/O's on there. I also am going to put on an OME 2" lift.

The guy at my local 4WheelParts store said that won't fit... But I can't imagine that not fitting. Do you guys have any idea who has this setup... and if I need to do anything to the car otherwise?

Thanks,
D

Probably a combination of backspacing and offset that has the professional thinking it won't fit.

No, those should fit...Were you going with the 17 X 8's? or 17 X 9s? And way to be about the off raod set up!! Love mine :)

Your setup is sweet!

Should I do 17x9 or 17x8? What you think?

ha thanks. tough to say! stock is 17 x 7.5. i was thinking about getting flat black pro comps. i was going to get 17x8 just because i trail ride and didn't want them sticking out to far. good luck with whatever size you go with. when do you plan on lifting her?

I think they only make these in ones I want in 17x9... I am trying to get my OME kit ASAP. Theya re saying 3-4 weeks... KILLING me. I may have found a local shop though. Ideally, whole thing done in 2 weeks...

Is that better??? Is it more complicated?

Na. Dont think one is better than the other. I have heard good and bad things about both lifts. They are both spacer kits. I have the RR lift. I love it. My cousin OBXJeep has the same set up and his has Blistein shocks and rides even smoother. Just search RR lift or OME lift. There are alot of write ups on them which is why this forum kicks booty! Check it check it.
