    Default 16" steels for '07 jk

    ok guys im comin to ya with a question. im lookin into plain black steels for the jk. i have talked with a few diff ppl and kinda wondering if i screwed myself. i have 4 brand spankin new 35-12.5-16 BFG-MT's sittin in the garage. i want to stay with the 16" wheel. i have been told from 3.5 to 5" back space. the 5" was from quadratec. i called them tonite to see what they say. that is what the guy said all theirs are.5". they are the only ppl that have said 5". also he told me that cragar had 2 almost identical wheels and that they cut 1 of them out because it hits the brake caliper. ok if thats the case why not cut both of them out?

    in short what do ya recommend i go with. like i said i would really like to stay with the 16"s since i already have the damn tires.. back space? i have a place here in ft wayne that will make them however i want them.

    Thumbs up wheels

    Dont kow if you got it squared away or not, But i have a 08 JK and bought a pair of 16's with a 5x5 from quadratec.(Cragers) they fit perfect with no issues. I was also told the calipers would hit the rim but they didnt.
