noob question about 33x12.5x15 load capacity
i'm a newbie to the forum.
im in a 2011 unlimited sport with 17" oe wheels. wanted to go with a wider more aggresive tread.
after reading about 200 posts on the forum, i had decided to go with the 33"x12.5"x15 duratrac tire and wheel package from discount tire (i was thinking 15x8 mbtko 5x5) when i contacted the sales rep through the forum he told me that the stock tire carries a load capacity on 2,458 lbs and the 33" duratrac on 15" falls short at 2,205 lbs. i was told i could either move up to a 35" tire on 15" rim (requiring lift) or i would have to go with a 16" rim.
ive seen dozens of posts from unlimited sport owners runing the 33"x12.5" duratrac package. is there something im missing?
any information would be greatly appreciated.
