17x9 wheels with 4.75 backspace

I am looking at some pro comp 7036 for my 2012 Rubicon. The size is 17x9 w/4.75 BS. Does anyone have these wheels with stock tires and how is the stance? Any suggestions??? Bring on the input!!!! Stock height

I tried a procomp wheel with that BS and the tire rubbed on my control arms and sway bar. You may want to consider 4.5 to give you clearance.

If you can't find a wheel with 4.5 or better backspacing that you like you can always run a spacer so those won't rub.

A 9" wheel is IMO a little too wide for stock width tire (255/70R17 ~10"width), a 285/70R17 tire would be better and should have no interference issues with that wheel, above that you may get interference to the flares at full flex.
With a 9" - 4.75" BS wheel you should be able to go up to 315/70R17 (~35X12.5") tire with slight rear pinch seam trim, flare trim and/or little bit of lift and bump stop increase.

Panamon creel is dead on with his post. 17x9 is a little wide for the stock 255's but these would be great for a 285/70R17 or even larger if you are planning on lifting it. With a 4.75 backspace, a 2.5" lift/level and a little work a 35" tire is very doable.

If you think you'll want to run a 37" tire or a tire wider than 12.5" sometime down the road, that's when I would recommend looking for a wheel with less backspace.

Here's a similar wheel design with a 4.5" backspace: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...r=1&wd=17&rw=9

Yeah, I looked at those wheels too but didnt like them near as much. I pulled the trigger on those Pro Comps. So now I need to know what tire I should roll with. I dont have a lift and tires in my budget. Trying to explain this to the wife should be fun....

Not sure what you're asking here?!
Do you want to use the spacers with the stock wheels instead of getting the 17X9-4.75BS Wheels?

Good luck with that. Sometimes its easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.

You shouldn't need a wheel spacer to run the 295's on your new wheels. You may want a mini lift for your jeep though. 295/70R17's are a little over 33". You can run these at stock height but they will most likely rub (minor) your fenders at full flex without at least a little lift or some flat fenders.

I hear ya on the forgiveness part, problem is wrangling that damn card from her!! well I think I will see about holding off install on the new wheels until I can fit tires into the budget. I ended up buying spacers just cuz i got such a great deal on them. Brand new 4 anodized red w/ studs from jbconversions for $40.00. If i need them later I will have them, if not I can pass the deal on to another who does. what tires do you recommend? I was looking at GY Duras or Nitto Trail Graps. Maybe even Falken or Cooper....decisions decisions....

I'd steer clear of the spacers if you can. If you plan on getting your tires rotated or serviced at one of our locations we don't work on it if it has wheel spacers installed.

When it comes to tires, the best tire for you will be the one that fits your wants and needs best. If your jeep is a DD there are some excellent all terrains that can still take some serious abuse offroad. There's also some really great mud terrain tires on the market today if you like the aggressive look and want a big meaty tire.

Wheel and tires installed!!!!

Well got the wheels and tires installed today. Want to give a big shout out to the guys at Discount Tire in Lake Havasu City,AZ for hooking it up! They did a great job and for a pretty decent price. I think it looks pretty good. Still stock height and no other mods really. I may just go broke....

Just for future reference on this thread I'll post a couple of pictures for reference:

These are Black Rhino Imperials with 37" MTR/Ks on them. 17 x 9 with 4.75" (SCRATCH THAT! 4.5") back spacing:



Same wheels with 1.5" Spidertrax Spacers:



I added the spacers because the tires were rubbing on my adjustable lower control arms when turned to full lock.

I figured you just make stuff up after lots of peyote and hope that it sounds convincing.


But...now knowing that those have 4.5" of BS, that puts them back up in the running for when I swap mine out!

So a 33X12.5 in the same rim should fit with no issues correct?

Hi, I'm running Toyo MT's LT295/70R17 (33,5x12) with stock wheels and 1,25" Teraflex spacers, that gives me about 5" of BS (2007 Rubicon 4dr. with 2,5" OME lift).
Planning to go for BF MT's LT315/75R16 (35x12,5) on 16x8" Dick Cepek DC-2 wheels with 4" of BS.......Do you think I could have any rubbing?.

Thanks.
