Wheel & Tire Questions Rubbing
I know this question must have been dealt with before but I can find a conclusive answer and hope you all could help.
2006 Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi
Tires Wrangler Duratrac 265/70R17
Wheels BLACK ROCK TYPE 8 SERIES 997
I want to install 17 x 8 wheels with 0 offset, 4.5 backspace. Will I get rubbing?
I know a lot of people on this site run the stock wheels with 1.5” spacers, this combo will give you a 17 x 7.5 wheel with +6 offset, 4.5 backspace without any rubbing with the same tire.
My understanding is that the 17x8 wheel will be pushed out on both sides(fender side and inside) by a ¼ inch more compared to the stock wheel and spacer setup. Will this cause rubbing when I do the pinch welt? Will I need a front spacer
Anyone running this setup? Info, picture? Will these wheels front calipers
Your help is greatly appreciated!
