I have the Bilsteins in front set at 2.1 and Bilstein rears with a .75 inch coil spacer.
I want to run 35 inch tires on either a 17 or 18 inch wheel. Most of the wheels I have looked at are either 0 offset or -6 to -12 offset. I know the stockers are +19 roughly so I think that the 0 offsets will give me the clearance I need. I will likely be adding the RCX 1.25 body lift in the near future so that will help as well.

So how will I do with an 18x9 0 offset wheel and 35x12.50 mud terrains?
an 18x9 +0 offset would work fine 35x1250 bilsteins at 2.1 and you should not have any issues rubbing, if you do it will be very very minor and require a little trimming of the lower valence to correct the issue however the chances of this happening are almost 0 with a level, now if you are planning on adding another 1.25" via the body lift you should absolutely have no issues at all.

The few times I have seen someone have issues with rubbing when running a 35" tire was 13.5" wide I have seen this happen on a +0, -6, and -12 offset w/ a 2" level and only at full lock one direction or the other, however this tire is 1" wider than what you are wanting to run.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

thanks
Jeremiah

What's your opinion on a good All Season, mostly street tire (occasional gravel/dirt road or drive through the backyard to pick up limbs) for a 2012, 1500 2WD with 17" rims? Currently have the OEM Wranglers with 35K miles, 60% tread and they're spinning on wet pavement. I've looked at the Firestone Destination LE2 and Continental Cross Contact.

I know the Michelins are very good, but also very pricey.

Thanks for your input.

for an AT tire the nitto dura grapplers are a very nice choice, if you are wanting something a little more aggressive you could look into the toyo OC's MT's, or the toy OC AT's they will probably run you about the same as a nice Michelin tire though. All are good choices however if you are mainly a highway driver I would probably stick with a Nitto Dura Grappler or a Michelin tire. JMO

Need to, no. And IMO you probably won't feel the want to either. Only going to a 35 with that set up should be okay. The "power loss" won't be as bad as you might think.

Default BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

Want to put these on a 2012 SLT 2wd. Any experience???

They get good reviews at Tire Rack and a couple other sites.

I do probably 90% ON road and the rest gravel/country roads and the occasional trip into the backyard.

Thanks in advance for any help.
