    Default Jeep cherokee

    I have a 1995 jeep cherokee sport, it has a 3 inch lift with 31 inch tires. Im looking to keep the stock rim size of 15x6. What is a good amount of backspacing for a wider stance?

    Hey and welcome, you talking about spacers between the hub/knuckle and the rim?

    Keep in mind as you move the weight of the tire and wheel away from the center line of the wheel hub assembly you put additional stress on the bearing and it will fail quicker.

    Would getting offset wheels put the same amount of stress on the bearing? Im kinda up in the air on whether to get wheel spacers or offset wheels? Which do you think is better?

    Neither for the wheel bearings. If it's your daily driver and you start modifying it make sure you have the to replace the parts that fail quicker.

    I have 10x15 with a 3.75" backspace with 33x12.5x15 MTs It's been about 5 years since I replaced the hubs. Mine is a daily driver, 40 miles a day.

    Ive been looking into that recently for mine, i see it as another link in the chain to break, especially since it's 100 bucks for spacers or I can get a set of 5 10x15's for 230 all about how you want to roll.

    Offset rims. I think mine are 3.75 or 4. Spacers are not the way to get A wider stance IMO. Some shops (discount tire) won't even touch your rig if you've got them.

    those turbines look good on there tho
