    Thanks Eddie and everyone who had commented. I’m getting them mounted up on Monday, so I’ll post pics when they’re on the Jeep.

Wheels were on the porch today and I can’t wait to get them mounted up.

    Bad news on the wheels. When I got to the shop this morning, I asked the mechanic to check the fitment before he mounted the tires on the wheels. I only asked this because I have that massive Rock Krawler tie rod, with those huge forged ends on it. Sure enough the wheels didn’t even come close to fitting. They hit the tie rod end with about a half turn of the wheel. I figured this might happen so they tried a 1 ton aluminum tie rod they make in house. Nope, the wheel touched that one too. They want to try the teraflex hd tie rod. They think it would work because the teraflex ends are forged differently than others. 🤷🏻*♂️ My other option would be to go back to the stock tie rod. I guess my question is, which is the better option? Or, do I just try a different wheel that works better with my set up?

    What's the backspace on those wheels?
    A set of spacers might work to help them clear. Not the best option but just another option.

    -12 offset with 4.5” backspace. If I do spacers that puts me at 3” of backspace. I think that’s too much.

    I'm in the same boat with my wheels but my 37x13.5 Cooper's rubbed everything so while not ideal I'm sitting at 3" net backspace with spacers. Just thought I would throw out the idea as an option if you really like your tie rod haha

    I believe Veruge144 was able to get a quality set of made in the USA 1" spacers.

    A 1” spacer makes me leery. To be honest, I’ve never even seen them before.

    Wouldn’t 1” spacers/adapters require grinding about .5” of the studs?

    Would you mind sharing any pics? I’m in the same boat only with 35s and 4.5” backspacing. When fully compressed with 2” of bumpstop, my front tires are slightly rubbing my poison inner fenders and the top of my fox 2.0 reservoirs regardless if they’re toward the spring perch or rotated back against the frame. I don’t have any other rubbing. My concern is that if I install 1.25” spacers, it will look too wide and weird with narrow fenders and 35s.IMG_0044.jpgIMG_0045.jpg

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.
