    Hope everyone’s doing well I wanted to ask currently I’m running 31/10.5/15 on a stock height 2008 Liberty they just happen to rub a little much for my liking. I wanted to ask for opinions on 235/75/15’s knowing the suspension has sagged now will these tires fill the wheel wells or just look to small? If not could anyone recommend tire sizes?

    Thanks so much!!

    How are you running 15 inch rims and clearing the brake calipers?

    The rears cleared the calipers and in the fronts I shaved the slightest bit off the bolt running through the lower control arm and I’m running a 5/16” spacer works perfectly haven’t had a single problem

    Not yet, bad idea running thin spacers, less lug for the lug nut to grab onto
    and yes 31s need 2.5 inches of lift to run and preferably 4.10 gearing

    LOTS of difference in steel
    then you add 8 inch which some think looks cool with 3-4 inches of backspacing and of course won't hit suspension parts, just body parts
