    I think the Willys wheels are the same as the old XJ and YJ wheels, just OD. They are 15x7. They are OK with 31x10.50s. If you want to go with 33x10.50 or 33x12.50s, I would get a 15x8 with 3.75 or 4 in of BS. JMO.

    That's the TJ Willys edition, right?
    I'd bet those are 8" wide wheels.... you got the fancy upgraded suspension, d44 rear, alternator, etc. in that package, right? More or less a green Sahara with extra decals. In which case you got 15x8" wheels.
    Are you lifted? If not, don't flex at all... it will run on flat pavement (be sure to adjust the bump stops, etc.) but will self-clear in a flex.
    That's a nice edition of Jeep. I'm a little jealous. But then, I'm often tempted to put my old BN bumper number on my TJ just for kicks.

    not to be an a$$, but you can use www.google.com to search for backspacing information. its all about helping you help yourself, and you know you need that in the corps. that and i would not make much sense without researching it myself.

    i'm aware and i did look it up before i posted. the problem is i couldn't get straight barney style answers and i figured a jeep forum would be a good place to ask the questions i couldnt find myself. i'm aware of how the Corps works, but don't usually consider my combat knowlege usefull when it comes to offroading information.


    AND by the way all all google showed up with for me is how to measure backspacing, not how it affects larger tires when aired down. i'll be sure to be careful about asking 'stupid' questions for now on.
