What are he specs on the stock TJ wheel? Back spacing? Looking to get some new wheels but don't know anything about the back spacing, etc. etc. Just want some new wheels that are stock dimensions.
It depends on which wheel you have.
Here's a listing of all the factory wheels offered on the TJ, as well as their size and backspacing:
@Chris , do your Pintlers have 5.5 BS? If so is that why you went with wheel spacers?With aftermarket wheels, you'll want 15x8 wheels with 3.75" to 4" of backspacing. That is the ideal size for aftermarket wheels.
Ok thanks, thats what i thought, ill run 1" spacers while i decide what to do with my Ravines ...My Pintlers have 5.25” backspacing, so I was basically forced to go with a wheel spacer, as they would have rubbed big time without spacers. You’ll probably need a 1” wheel spacer as well.
The numbers you are using are offset numbers, not backspacing. They don't mean anything to most people, FYI. Backspacing is the measurement in inches from the rear wheel mounting surface to a straightedge across the rear outside edge of the wheel...My OEM wheels have a backspacing of +32, so I had to get the Spider 1.25" spacers. I about to upgrade my wheels to the Black Rock Viper which has a backspace of -19, so my spacers will be removed. If my calculations are correct then the new -19 should be perfect.
Agree, Ravines are good lookin wheels. I'm moving the Ravines from the blue 05 to the white 97. Saw Ravines on a white TJ and it was stunning imhoAgree with Chris . . .
Clean your Ravines up . . . powdercoat a different color ?
They're made for your vehicle, and look good !
When I search online for wheels I never see backspacing as a choice, only offset. How do I find replacement wheels for my stock TJ 15x7 wheels without offset? I have 30/9.50-15 tires...It's a 4 cyl auto and I'm in CO so...
