JK owners with 15x8 wheels, pic request

Hello everyone, just ordered a full set of five Goodyear Duratrac 33x12.5R15 on MB72 matte black alloy wheels. Got a great price on these from the guys at Discount Tire Direct. Does anyone have this set up currently, would you mind posting up some pics?

thanks -

Thanks for the pics so far. Do I understand this correctly? If you mount 33s on 15x8s then they are going to lose a little height but have a wider stance vs mounting them on 15x10s? I can't remember which stretches the tire more and which allows the rubber to set up taller over them. I don't think 15x10s seem to be what most prefer but would just like to know.

15x10's will give you a more "squat" look. Like a box. Wider, flatter. 15x8's will squeeze the tire more, making it slightly taller.

Here are mine on 15x8's. 33x12.50.15 BFG MT's (design before KM2's)

15x8 Cragars & 35/12.50 MTR/Ks



I don't mean to throw a pitch but I can usually meet or beat Discount Tire Direct's pricing.

Yeah, the 15x10 will make your tires a bit shorter/boxier. Pluss the tirs are going to stick out past the fenders. Here are my 35/12.5/15 on 15x10 wheels.
