    315's are on..

    First of all thanks to Discount Tire for continuing to do a great job and everyone that contributed to the various wheel, tire, and spacer threads. Thru a bunch of searching and reading I was able to put together an emergency plan. I didn't notice two months ago at time of purchase, but the tires that were on the Jeep when I bought it used, had dry rot and cracking in between the treads. I missed that when I bought it.......my bad

    BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 in LT315/70R17 and Spidertrax spacers (1.5 inch) are on and will fit with no rubbing while turning.....However, anything bigger than a pothole and those tires get into the underside of the fenders real quick as I found out and was pretty much expected.

    Long term plan was 315's on stock wheels for winter use and 35's on an aftermarket 17 inch wheel for summer. I have my lift choices narrowed down to EVO or Synergy. Either one will work well for what I do with my Jeep..I just had to rearrange my plan and its time frame a little no big deal.

    Thanks again for all the great info that's been posted.

    Jeep looks great. Discount Tire is always helpful. As far as your Spidertrax spacers, I was lucky enough to visit their factory about a week ago. Those guys really take pride in their work as well.

    That's good to know.

    I don't recall ever reading a bad word about them in my searches so they were an easy choice !

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.
