Check it out. There's more and more 15" wheels available for the Jk but so far many of them are pretty common when it comes to style. Those of you that are looking for a completely different style the MB TKO is now available.

15x8 -19mm offset 33x12.50R15 Duratrac










(This picture is a 17" sample)

I was about to say the same thing. The wheels are not too ghetto looking, but those center caps have to go.

Not bad, I agree on the center caps. I feel way too many wheels have too large a cap it takes away from the look.

But it looks as if you could do some flat plastic/steel and just attach it right to the threaded wells. Should look better.

I just found out from the manufacturer that the MB Chaos cap (pictured below) will mount up on the TKO. Please note that the cap shown in the OP comes with the wheel but if you would like the Chaos cap in addition to the full face closed cap that come with the TKO, we have them available for only $12.00 per cap.

quick question- I want to put the 15" TKO's on my 07jk rubi, with 35 bfg's, since tires are 100 bucks cheaper a pair vs the 17" rim. What is the difference in street handling between the two rim sizes? is cutting out that 2" of extra rubber worth 500 bucks?

The sidewall height difference between the two sizes is one inch so the average driver won't really notice a difference in handling between the 35x12.50-15 and 35x12.50-17 tire sizes. Another nice benefit to running a 15" combination besides price is the total savings on weight.

question for discount tire

I have an '07 unlimited x 4wd. My aftermarket wheels are 15x8 with a -30mm offset. I'm going to need new tires. I'd like to bump up to a 35x12.50x15 in size, but don't know if it will clear.

Could you please tell me if that tire size will clear on my vehicle without lifting or modifying it. I can't lift it, as I have small kids that need to be able to get in unattended.

If that tire size won't work, what's the max tire that will.

Thanks in advance for your answer, all of your help on this site, and the discounts/deals you offer.

JB

To clear 35's you would either needs a 2.5" lift or flat fenders with modifications to the stock rock rails.

33" is the tallest you can clear without a lift or modifications. A popular size is 33x12.50-15.

Hi, I'm ready to pull the trigger this weekend, do you guys have any discounts/deals for the 15” MB TKO’s, 5xChaos caps and 5x 35” BFG MK2 mudders. Also I would need the black lugs with atleast one locking nuts per wheel… Also I will be running this with a 2.5 rock krawler lift, is the back spacing enough on these rims or do I need to get spacers?

Right now through us mail order we are offering an instant $50.00 discount with the purchase of a new set of Chaos 5 wheels. We also mount, balance, and ship all wheel and tire packages for FREE. On top of that we give all JKO members here $50.00 OFF their total with the purchase of 5 tires. If you prefer to purchase through your local Discount Tire I suggest contacting them directly to see what they can do for you. Our local stores are very good about matching on-line delivered prices.

The backspace on the 15x8 Chaos 5 is 3.75" so no spacers required :)
