Finally got around to mounting our new 40×13.50R17 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires on our Trail Ready beadlocks and installed them on Rubicat.
Ever since Cindy and I started running a set of 37×13.50R17 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro M/T tires on Rubicat, our 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler, we knew we had to have them in a set of 40’s.
After being away from home for almost 2 weeks, it was time for us to finally head for home. Unfortunately, a storm was coming in and the winds ahead of it were clocking in at over 70 MPH.
While pushing the center line of your wheels further out will help you to run bigger tires and without rubbing issues, you do it at the expense of increasing your scrub radius and at the cost of putting more stress on your ball joints, wheel bearings and even tie-rod.
