    Thread Revival!

    Verifying some offset/backspacing info and came across this - it's like Offset and Backspacing for Dummies!

    Figured it deserved the revival!

    Running stock width full float Axles on 35" tires with 3.5" Lift.

    The Axles require 8x6.5 LUG what Backspacing and Offset Should I go to avoid Tires sticking out of the Fender and No rub

    Note: Currently running 20x9 with 5.71 backspacing and +18mm Offset and tIres do stick out a little bit from from fender but no rubbing.

    Hi, JK007-

    How far out would you say your current wheels and tires sit outside of the fender and is this with the aftermarket axles or factory axles?

    I would say 1" with factory Axles and stock Flares.

    Full width axles and eight lug for 35’s? Little overkill, no?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
