    315/70/17 OEM Rubicon Wheels/Mopar 2" Lift Kit on JLUS

    Just installed 315/70/17 BFG "C" on my '18 JLUS using Rubicon takeoffs. With the Mopar 2" lift which yielded 3 1/2 lift. Now my front tire rub the lower control arms at left/right lock. Is there unadjustable lower control arm with more curvature to clear the wider tire. Thanks in advance.

    Likely the tire is too wide. You can get different rims with less backspacing or just get a set of 1.5 inch wheel spacers to bring the tires outward more. If you go with spacers, don't get Chinese knock-offs. Get spidertrax or synergy.

    I ran the 315/70/17 vs 285/70/17 with the Rubicon rim thru an online calculator and it detailed an 1" increase width wise on the inside and 1" increase on the outside.

    That would mean they are 2 inches wider. That is unlikely.

    Jeep looks great. I am running 35 x 12.5 on Rubicon rims and added the synergy 1.625" wheel spacers and have no rubbing.
