Re: Rim offsets

That would depend on the exact set-up, larger diameter rims accommodate that as well as larger brakes.

Re: Rim offsets

I run the Ruff Stuff Chevy 1-ton crossover steering on two XJs. On one I have JK 17 inch rims. A bit on a turning radius problem, due to extended swaybar brackets. They could be bent in a bit to help. I have WJ Big Brakes on it. I use WJ hub bearing so as not to use spacers. I do use spacers on the rear presently. Also, Rusty's OTK Trackbar. I do use the Ruff Stuff steering stabilizer setup with an OME WJ stabilizer.
On the other, I have 16 inch rims that were available on the latter XJs. Also, WJ Big Brakes and Ruff Stuff Chevy 1-ton Steering. On both it is under the Knuckle. Stinky Fabs OTK trackbar and trackbar brace. No spacers. I haven't driven this much. But it feels real tight.
My opinion or experience with these setups is a more controlled steering. Also, less affect from bumps or bump steer.

Re: Rim offsets

It says right on the product page:

" 4" of Backspacing or Numerically Less Required "
