Yup, 1.5" spacers. Can't afford any fancy wheels right now, I's a broke fool...

But I like the way they look

What's the largest rubber you can fit on the stock rims with no major rubbing and without spacers I wonder?

I don't mind these rims:
http://www.mambawheels.com/Mamba_Whe...a_Type_MR1.htm


But offset is wrong for where I live...only allowed a 50mm overall increase in track width. Which is 25mm each side. Fail.

now: RHD JK 2dr Rubicon 3.8 6spd

Anyone have DW issues or wheel bearings prematurely going out with 37"s on the stockers?

No reason for 37's to cause DW, unless they are out of balance and wear something.

Plenty of people running aftermarket rims with less backspacing and higher offset #'s than stock + spacers without any issues.

I've been running 37" MTRk's on the OEM wheels for over a year now. 1.5" spacers and all is good.
FWIW - I typically run about 10psi when wheeling.

you have to imagine that 37's should wear out the ball joints faster than 35's.

and ball joints could cause a case of dw

Good to know. My 2000 Superduty had short wheel bearing life after switching to 36"'s on 4.5" backspacing. Eventually went with aftermarket hubs. I was a bit concerned on the JK cause I use spacers and after I installed them I started getting DW... but only under certain circumstances and I would like to step up to 37"s:

between 25 and 45 mph hitting a slight dip in the road while following a slight bend to the left on pavement. This is the only time the the wobble starts and it starts with the driver wheel. I discovered that if I slightly yank the wheel to the right a fraction of a sec after I hit the dip the DW is subdued.

How's your steering geometry, drag link and track bar parallel?

Please excuse my ignorance: Nobody worries about running a tire that wide on a 7" wheel? I'm heavily debating running either a 345/75R16 or 365/75R16 on an 8" steelie and have concerns about it...

Thoughts?
