    BFG A/T KO 265/70/17, '11 FJ wheels, 5100's all four corners, Eibach springs, 1/4" Taco lean spacer, Leer 100XR, WeatherTech liners, trimmed mud flaps and I farted in it.
    I really want to be able to fit front flaps again...so sick of the damage being done to the front doors.

    Currently running Koenig Countersteer Type X...they have -10 offset which works out to about 4" of offset....I think :rolleyes:

    I've got 1.6" of lift up front which cured the worst of the fender well rubbing, except at full lock in reverse...but I can't fit flaps at all...not the stock flaps or the Husky's I bought in the hopes they'd fit.

    I'd love to run some AR ATX Mojave's, Artillerys or even Ledge...but I don't know enough about offsets / back spacing....even after reading all the sticky's...just not smart enough haha

    All I know is the stock 17's with plus sized 265/70/17's never rubbed at all....even before adding 1.6"s of lift.

    So the simple solution would be to find something closer to stock spec's than the Countersteer's....but still look tough/industrial

    Any suggestions's guys ? Just want to stop thrashing the finish...and yeah...I know it looks more badass without flaps...but I'm over it :D

    I'm running 16x8 0 os and 4.5 bs with 265 70 16's. Fits fine with no rub and flaps are stock except for trimming the length of the fronts.

    thanks for the reply...but I think my tires would be still be larger than yours..265/65/17's = 265/70/16's if I understand correctly....but I wouldn't be surprised for a second if I had that wrong :D

    edit: looks good by the way !

    just because I learned how to calculate metric sizes the other day here on TW....

    265/65/17 = 30.56" tire

    265/70/16 = 30.6" tire

    same overall diameter :)

    Yeah I know. But I though you were asking more so about the off set and back spacing. Plus with you having a lift I knew that changed things also. But was just trying to help as much as I could. Maybe others will have better info for you.

    oh I am talking about bs and offset for sure...it's just that my tire size is different than your's I'm not sure that what is working for you would work for me.

    really appreciate the input bro...thanks for trying to help !!

    Your countersteers rub because they stick out too far with their 4" of BS. If you get a rim with 4.5"-5.5" BS you will alleviate the rubbing.

    ok cool...thanks for the info.

    So if the ATX Mojave's are 4.44" BS and 0 Offset and the ATX Artillery's are 4.52" BS and -12mm Offset they should both fit without rubbing ...or at least better than my current 4" BS wheels ?

    thanks again for the help

    I just re-read your OP and saw that you want to run your flaps again. With 265's the 8" wide wheels (mojaves) will give you a better shot at that than with the 9's (artillery) because they will stick out 1" less.

    ok...good to know...and just to clarify they're 265/70/17's...still think the mojaves will work ?

    I ran the same size on my stockers and no lift without issue to but they are more like 5.5" bs, so I just wanna make sure 4.5" bs isnt gonna stick out too much and cause problems....but if KPT thinks it'll work that's good enough for me.
