    Do you have a lift kit on your jeep? Do you think one inch spacers would work for the tires and wheels you're running? Did you do the pinch seems?

    One inch spacers rub on the rear of the front tires towards the cabin with no lift on the Trailhawk. ATPs lift might clear the pinch seam. I'm going to have to do the punch seam mod though.

    Not sure if you were asking me or the other fella lol but mine is a lifted FWD so it sits nearly at stock TH height... I needed 1" spacers, trimmed the pinch seams, and remolded the inner fender liner... still rubs at full lock but only against the fender liner which I'm going to push back more

    Pinch seam gone but still rubs slightly against the plastic liner which I'm going to have pulled back as far as possible... nothing major just small annoyance at the moment in low speed turn conditions

    The more I view this post and the tire/rim setup the more I like it! Just not a big fan of the rubbing.

    I'm getting my ATP lift installed this weekend to see how much room I'll have on my FWD for tire size

    New ATP kit installed with the tires vs stock 2 years ago... definitely a bit higher than the daystar one I removed and very pleased with the outcome

    For the people that got the tires+wheels installed, how much clearance do you have with the bottom of the strut?

    I am running 235/65/17 with ZERO rubbing on a stock TH with no spacers or lift. I am extremely close to the bottom of the strut tower and would need to add a spacer to push the wheel out from under it if I go any larger OD of tire.

    Adding spacers as we all know causes the tires to hit the pinch seam area so I am trying to do a calculation to see if perhaps .5" spacers would work and still have enough thread engagement on the OEM studs.

    That being said I would guess with 8" wide wheels you would be extremely close to the strut assembly even with 1" spacers meaning that anything less is out of the question.

    Photos of the bottom of the strut+wheel would be great


    Also I want to mention that I love the look of the wheels you guys got 10/10!

    What effects did the larger tires have on your MPG?

    So far not a huge difference... went down .3 mpg from the readout... I did however add another roof attachment beside my basket so can't really say if it was one or the other or both combined.
