New 35s on 15 inch wheels, no life.

Just thought I'd throw this out there since I know there was a lot of conflicting information on if 15" wheels would fit. 15" ion alloy 174 wheels with 35x12.5 general grabbers. No lift. There is not a bit of rubbing anywhere, even full lock both directions over bumps, etc. I do have the smittybilt flat fenders on. Just a reference for anyone thinking of doing the same.

Those Grabbers really look fat on your 15" wheels. The big red lettering seems to dwarf the rims even more.

So you're saying you don't like them?

Looks good. I'm running 35x12.5 mt/r's on 15" level 8 Tracker With 1.75" lift and cut fenders. I bought the rims a year and a half ago with 33x12.5 duratracs and just recently upgrade tires to the 35's.
zero issues so far.

Thanks! Did you need to space your wheels? Mine fit with no spacers at all, and no rubbing.

No spacers and no rubbing. I found a thread somewhere (can't remember where) listing 15's that fit and I think someone from discounttiredirect had posted a list of their offerings. I picked out the ones I liked and they bolted up with no issues at all.

My spell checker correct "Phat". On the contrary, they look great!

I don't remember what backdpacing mine are. I'll try to measure it when I get a chance. I do remember reading that some 15's don't work do to rubbing issues.

I believe my backspace is 3.75. The tires stick out a ton, looks boss I think. I know some people had issues with steel 15" wheels because of manufacturing, mine are alloy and had no issues. Balanced well.
