    Well maybe 1/4 of grinding. I'm running 1-1/4 spacers. No grinding was required. Studs are recessed about 0.06" from the face of the spacers.

    That’s good to know in the event I decide to do spacers to fix my problem that 1” are an option

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.Attachment 341871Attachment 341872

    Yeah mine is pretty wide but I don't think it looks overly rediculous. I am 83" in total width to the outside of the tires. But I'm also on 37x13.520180630_155605.jpg20180630_155711.jpg20180823_104743.jpg

    What’s the backspace on your wheels? And are you running spacers?

    No issues I assume? I’ll be in the same boat. The new wheels are 4.5 and I have to use 1.5” spacers with them.

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.
