    Just lifted the wife's 02 Liberty with the 927's and 948's with bilstein fronts and N132l rear shocks. I'm looking at the 15 x 8 pro comp 7069 that quadratec has with 31 x 10.5 tires. Big question is will the rim fit. I know 15"rims can be close to the front brakes and it is a 3.75" backspacing. Thanks for any help.

    3.75 backspacing :(
    Bad backspacing
    if you just have to have 8 inch wide wheels , 5 inches of backspacing sits the tire/wheel combo even with the flares and all you have to do is the lift and pound over the pinch welld
    3.7s inches of backspacing will cause a lot more issues with rubbing/ turning etc
    Plus get ready for a regear as well
    I run 8 inch wide Moabs on two of mine , they have 5 inches of backspacing and work great
    even 7 inch wide wheels the best backspacing is 4 inches when lifted
    as far as fitting over the calipers, black steel wheels will, aluminum will not unless you do have outlandish backspacing on them
    Not sure what type the PROCRAP 7069 is, check out Summit or Jegs
    Have better parts than PROCRAP does

    would a 4.5" backspace work on a 16 x 8 with 265/70/16. Thanks again

    NOT IDEAL, WOULD CAUSE A LOT LESS INTERFERENCE than the others ( whoops sorry caps )
    Personally I wouldn't due to throwing dirt/rocks all over 5 inch backsapcing does that enough LOL
    May have to lift it a bit more if you are just at 2.5 inches with the 927s/948s to make a bit more room

    You didn't mention but I assume you installed bumpstops, with 4.5 backspacing you may need to run more bumpstop in the rear, less flex but will keep from tires tearing the flares off

    Hockey pucks in the back and teraflex in the front for bump stops. It's the wife's jeep, so no real off road adventures. She's under 5' and likes to sit up high. So I don't think we'll be tearing flares off.

    Well depending on wheel width and backspacing you just may
    EXAMPLE: on my 04 with over 4 inches of lift, 265-75-16s on 8 inch wide 5 inch backspaced wheel, I can stuff tire up in the rear with only 2 inches of bumpstops
    Buddy had a set of 265-75-16s on 8 inch wide , 4 inch backspaced ( he got em for free ) but he had to run 3.5 inches of bumpstops to keep from tearing his flares off , he was on 4 inches of lift at the time
