Yea the center bore on the jeep rims is 1 mm bigger.

The back spacing on the jeep rims are 5.25" and ours are 4.5", think this will cause issues? Or do I need 1.25" spacers?

The back spacing on my stock wheels was like 5.something inches. Those wheels will fit fine with 31s

Sent from my iPhone 5 so I can tell you to search wherever I may be

Interesting - Everything I have seen lists the stock backspacing as being 4.5" on a 7" wide wheel (aka - +12mm offset).

well, both the ones posted are kinda boring and plain.
what are your current wheels?

and yeah, stock backspacing is 4.5"
you may run into problems with more backspacing... may.

less backspacing is ideal. 3.75" is perfect imo.
