new wheel and tire selection

I have been looking for some wheels and tires for my new unlimited, and I think I am leaning towards getting some kmc xd misfits in the 17in wheel, and I am leaning towards some bfg at or bfg mt. This is my first jeep so I really new at this so my question is will these fit stock or will I need spacers or anything else to make these wheels work? Thanks for the help

Welcome to the party!

If you buy aftermarket wheels you won't need spacers. Just make sure you're looking at the versions of the wheel with 4 - 4.75" of back spacing or close to it.

With any mud tire the main thing to be aware of is rotation. You should rotate them every 3,000 - 5,000 miles, with an emphasis on 3000. This will keep them from cupping, chopping, and ultimately becoming louder and louder and harder and harder to balance. You should really rotate your tires every 5000 miles no matter what you've got to get the life out of them.

KMC makes a great wheel and BFG makes a great tire! I've had KM2s on my wife's Unlimited for over 20K miles and they still look fantastic!

If you need some help with part numbers or backspacing and all that jazz shoot me a PM or ask here and I'll walk you through it.

We've got a huge blowout that I was getting ready to post up on the advertisers forum with those wheels and a few others tomorrow, but check your PM and I'll get you the deal early.
