If I run 31" tires what amount of backspacing is needed for the rims. And what are the lug pattern or measurement for zuki axles?

Lug pattern is 5 on 5.5
As far as your B/S for 31's goes, it depends on how wide of a tire your going to run. When I had 31x10.5's I had some old Ford Truck rims and they worked fine and had little B/S
When I got my 33x13.5 Swampers I had some rubbing issues, so I had to run a 2" B/S wheel to clear them.
I also had some rubbing issues with my 36's, but I'm running spacers to solve that problem.
hope this helps!!!

I have 2 1/2" backspacing on 8X15 rims with 31x10.50's with no rubbing lug pattern is 5x5.5 same as Ford or Jeep. Standard backspacing is 3 3/4 for rims this size. I got my rims from Wheelers but Trail Tough, and Summit Racing also have them.

Was wondering if the rims and tires off my grand cherokee would work .I think they're 4.5 backspacing with 31/10-50's and I'll measure the lugs when the rain stops.

I believe the Jeeps have a 5x4.5 bolt pattern,so they won't fit.
And there is little chance that 4 1/2 BS will work on a Zuk,and still be able to turn lock to lock with a 31/10.50 tire.
