Whats up guys? Hopefully I'll be putting on my new wheels along with some bfg a/ts tonight. I'm picking up my adapters on the way home from work and I'll take plenty of pictures. I'll hopefully have more up here by 8 tonight. :)

well i decided to go with 285/75s but I got new nuts to use on the adapter and the guy sold me 12x1.25 nuts but they don't fit on my studs? I got a thread pitch gauge and the nuts I got read 1.50. So basically I didn't get to put the on tonight, the back looks good though. So I'm back to stock wheels until I get some new nuts. I'm thinking I might have some rubbing issues with the 8 inch wheels and 1 inch spacer. It looks like I might have to get out the old sawzall. :headbang:

If you don't have any nuts, don't go wheeling with Greg05, he is 100% absolutely, positively, without a doubt, unequivically bonified OFF the CHARTS crazy! (Xterror is a Close second.)
Pay close attention to the handling with the spacers. I got a gigantic difference just going to 33's.

Hey soccermom (sorry, thats what I think everytime I read your handle..must be that thing about the spelling need not be correct as long as first and last letters)

But on to my point.

You talking about nuts and rubbing in the same post :jerk: ???

OK guys, the wheels are on and the X is minus some sheet metal. It was a minor trim but you'll be able to see in the pictures. The pics I tried to take didn't turn out well since its dark but hopefully I can get some this weekend while I'm out of town and have them for you Monday.






Its a bad paint edit, but underneath the plastic piece I cut some of the sheet metal back and bent some of the metal back to give some more clearance.






Not the greatest pics, but hopefully they'll hold you over until I get some ones in the daylight. It looks much better, and they only stick out about an inch and a half from the fenders. There is still minor rubbing but it is somewhere in the middle of the the turn, the extremes are fine. A lift will definitely solve the problem. I'll try to get some pictures of where its rubbing as well.

So were the 285 rubbing because of the new wheels or the tire itself?

If they stick out an inch, what kind of problems do you have with the rear under full articulation? Are you going to slam your fenders?

Sorry for the slow response I was out of town for the weekend. The rubbing issues I feel are due mostly to the wider wheel and adapter. If you were to not need an adapter to fit the wheels I think there may be minor rubbing but much less than what I am experiencing. As far as articulation, I have yet to run into any problems, but I have not done anything off-road except for driving back my friends dirt lane. I can try to take some pics flexing later tonight if I get off of work at a decent time. I plan on getting an AC shackle lift here in the next couple of weeks so that will hopefully eliminate any possibility of slamming the fenders. I did take some pictures this weekend and will upload them when I get home from work.

I doubt it will as I can currently shove my rear wheels up into the wheel well. If they stuck out much more I would be hitting the fender.

I really like the black rims.

Where did you get the rims and what's the cost?

I kind of scratched one of the stock rims hitting a curb.

I got mine from Summit Racing for like 50 a wheel plus free shipping. Keep in mind you may need some kind of adapters to clear the brake calipers depending on the design of the wheels.

Kill me because I know you have answered this before, but I can't find it. Do you have any rubbing under full articulation? I would really like to get a wider wheel for my BFG's, but there doesn't seem to be any options other than spacers. Thanks in advance.
