Tried to avoid the post but....

Hey guys,
I feel like I did my due diligence in searching the forums for the answer and felt like I had direction until I chatted with DTD online. I tried to avoid a post, but alas here I am lol.

My rig
'13 jku no lift

desired wheel/tire combo
Black Rock D-Window 15X8 -12 offset 4" backspacing
BFG KM2 32X11.5X15 tires

I felt from my research this should work with no lift. However after chatting with DTD online he told me it would rub on the fenders. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

The DTD guy is incorrect. I'm running a stock Moab 177.5, 6" backspace) with a 1.5" adapter to offset the wheels (now i'd be closer to 4.5" backspace) . I have the 255/70-17 BFG KM's which actually measured out to 31.8", I don't even rub with my front axle disconnected and stuffed hard enough to make the flipped stabilizer touch the frame. I think you'll be fine.

That's a narrower setup. 18mm difference in offset and 11.5 inch tire vs 10.

Ya you won't rub the fenders, Allot of people run stock jk's with rubi wheels and tires.

I'm thinking he may have been saying your going to rub on the caliper. 15's do fit, some take a little bit of grinding though. ...

It might be too wide to tuck under the fender. If you flex it out. Maybe not, I'm not sure.

Nope it should be just fine. I just setup a jk last week with 33x 12.50 wildpeaks and 15's on 3.75 BS. Even with cut flares they will tuck.

Those are the same size or slightly smaller than the stock 255/75/17 KM1s. I would expect a 32x11.50x15 KM2 to be around 30.5-31" tall actual height if they run small like the other KM2s do. They will not rub even at full stuff.

I double checked out PM and I'm sorry if there is some confusion but we didn't say anything about rubbing on the fenders. Here's the exact info we gave...

The set-up you noted will work great on your application. The only issue you may run into (and I stress may) is at full steering wheel lock the tires may slightly rub the lower front valence. This can be easily trimmed though.
The front valence is part of the stock front bumper.

Actually this post was posted before I talked with you Matt. This was while I was talking online using the "chat" feature of DTD. You cleared everything up in your PM to me, thanks!

We apologize for the confusion! There are a few of us that actually message here. Travis, who responded above, was not aware of our previous conversation

You need the 3.75" backspacing. Get the ProComp 15x8 D window. You also won't have to grind your calipers with the ProComp wheels. If you're buying new tires, get 33x12.50-15.
