15" JEGS Baja-8 Steel Wheels and 35's

I had these mounted last week I started to buy the soft-8's for 49 but found these on Jegs for 42 they have 3.75" bs not 4" bs like the soft-8. The big surprise was that I didn't have to grind the brake calipers they fit with out any modifications. The local Goodyear got me the MTR K in one day.

Man that's a killer deal on those wheels! I don't understand how some of them are 3 times that much for the same wheel. LOL!

You'll really like that setup, I ran it on my JK for about a year without any issues. Those 15s make the 35s look huge, don't they?

You'd be surprised! I bet he doesn't get much rub when he flexes it out.

Below is my JK with a 2.5" budget boost, 15s & MTRs but 4" of BS. It would only rub in the exact center of the fender flare on the rivet that holds the inner fender in and it was only when the tire was turned just right.

I only took it out like that once and then I hacked them all to bits.

I have not had a chance to flex it out yet but I'm sure the front fender would rub and maybe the Rubi rock rail.
The cost was one reason I went with this set up and I really like the look.

if you didnt fit every wheel on the front to see if it clears the caliper you may have an issue on the trail if you get a flat and have to. imho

with my old setup like marcus... 2.5 BB and 35's GY mtr's on 15X10's my front wasnt a problem... it was the rear fenders..trust me....

your right the front rubs far enough where it can flex a little.... I flexed the rear once in this state... about ten of the plastic retainer clips flew off in multiple directions and multiple peices and then the fender was holding on by a few of teh top clips and rattled like mofo...

immediately cut the fenders and got me some new clips.....still rubbed on the rear pinch seams with my 2.5 RK stock mod... cut those on both sides of the tires and I was ok at full flex... if you want to take advantage of teh flex you gotta do some trimming....

no the best pic, but if you compare to stock you will see how much was actually cut...this should give u an idea

^ looks close to my setup. Here is mine fully stuffed upper control arms only for the rears.

15x8 3.75bs 35x12.5 mtrk. The only thing I trimed was the rock slider. This is on the stock rear bump stops. PP springs and some cheepo shocks at the time.
