New to the game!

I want to make the jump to 35's men, educate me!

My situation is I have a 2012 4 door unlimited automatic 4WD JK with a 2.5" Rough Country coil lift. Wheels are Pro Comp 7069 16"s with 4" backspace with 33" KM2s (Its my understanding that BF KM2s run small?). I will be keeping my stock fender flares.

My question is can I jump to 35"(315/75r16) KM2s (If they do run small) with my current set up? Or wrangler Duratrac 35" (315/75r16) which are a truer 35" tire without changing anything? Avoiding rubbing of course gentlemen

I know this is an over asked question and I'm sure you guys get sick of these type of threads but I appreciate any help I can get!

Thank you,
Matt

Wrong Jeep Site?

lol so no one on this Jeep site knows if 35" tires will work with 4" wheel backspacing under stock fender flares with a 2.5" coil lift?

Or your question has been answered a dozen times.. try using the search button instead of misplaced passive-aggressive sarcasm.

Hey now cutie-pie, I am new to the site and am not overly familiar with navigating it. My intent in rehashing my question was only done to simplify my original question thinking maybe I was not overly clear. It wasn't meant to get you butt sore my friend. Apologies are in order, clearly I can see I've hurt your feelings and this was far from my intentions.

P.S.- Thank you for ejaculating your free psych advise all over me! I think me made progress here! But you failed to address my deep seated mommy issues!

I appreciate your guidance. Ill admit that despite understanding how to navigate this site better, I am still having difficulty finding my answer. The 4" backspacing is what's vexing me.

I'm aware that 35s will fit under 2.5" coil lift with stock flares but is the 4" wheel backspacing enough at full turn and/or full articulation? Just cant find my answer...

Still hunting

There is a different crowd around this here forum. You better have thick skin if your going to hang here. You'll always get what your looking for, but first you may have to navigate some cock wranglers to get it!

I guess to answer your question on the 2.5" lift and 35" tires, you'll not have an issue there. You might need to play around with bump stop extensions if your keeping stock flares, you'll have to play around with it and see what you need. If it's for road use, you'll be fine. I'm running 37" on a 3.5" with 1.25" body lift and stock flares. I have to be a bit radical with bump stops to keep my stock flares. Eventually ($$$) I'll move to flats and back off the bump stops to gain back some axle motion (articulation).


I am in Beaver County, just outside of Cranberry Twp.

I didn't even think about the use of bump stops, like I said, new to the game, thank you. I wanna off-road but nothing overly serious, I have my re-gear and locker money saved up but Im just not sure where to have my work done. But before all that, its looking like Ill need before summers out so that's why I'm looking into 35".

Cranberry, I know the area, I was just over that way completing a Craigslist transaction

you are going to want to speak with Mark at Greensburg machine and Driveline for doing your rear gearing and for buying your parts. He will be the best price you will find both for the parts and the labor. And he does exceptional work, he does many sled pulling competition trucks, drag cars, and dirt track cars that people hold to him from all over even different states.
