Problems Lifting Jeep

Unread post by GQcress » June 17th, 2012, 9:28 pm

Hi ive just recently lifted my girlfriends TJ with a 2" lift and put 33"s on it and have found that where the old spring use to seat itself now is rubbing on the tyre, im trying to find out if any one else has run into this problem? i was thinking of putting 1 inch wheel spacers on it and was wondering weather its enough to also allow for the tyre to flex and not rub on this agan... ??

Cheers

What size & offset rims are you using? Are they 33/12.50R15s or some other size?

The rim size and offset that tyre stores sell to suit that size tyre normally don't allow a problem. If they have been fitted to the standard 15x7 rims, which is far too narrow for the tyre anyway, then this will be the problem.

What size & offset are the rims?

BTW, wheel spacers are very illegal in OZ.......... ;)
