Thanks John. Had a long (and great) conversation with Paul at AEV this AM about their wheels. They make an 8.5” (17) with 5.2” backspace and they say that it is the ideal geometry for 35-37” tires based on the concept of “scrub radius”. This keeps the wheels in tight but gives enough clearance for all the suspension components with a lift (2.5” to 4.5”). Sounds like a lot of thought went into their design for the JK.
I think I’m headed in that direction now... there’s a guy about 100 miles away from me selling a set of 5 AEV wheels and 315/70 BFG KO2’s with 10k miles on them for $1800. I might head down that path or buy new....
