Charles Morris

Model: Defender 90
Location: USA

35x12.5x15 Dunlop Mud Rovers
Desert Rover Suspension
15"x8" backspacing 4.5"

I have slight rubbing at this tire width/ backspacing combo on both my shock towers and rear shocks almost exactly at full articulation. I would guess I could fix it with another 1/4"-1/2" of backspacing. A wider rim would also take a little bulge out of the sidewall, which is where the rubbing is happening. I'll probably replace my rims. I love the tires. I removed about 4" of rear fenders to fit the tires at full compression with the Desert Rover kit. I trimmed the fender flairs back by 2" as well.
