You will need a 16x10 (or 9 if they make it)

I do not think you can get cheap rims in that size.

You could always sell them and make some money and them get 33x12.50 with a 15 inch rim. Then you could go 15x8 which you can get for $60 a piece if you go cheap.

yea 33's are generally acceptable on the d35 as long as you don't get too crazy.

i'd buy them and resell them for more, or just pass (i know it hurts to pass a good deal)

You can get some 16x8 rims I'm having a hard time finding 16x10s idk if they even make a 16x9 or 10 for a yj. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. And as far as putting 33s on a d35 yes thats the recommended max but some push up to 35s on the d35 and wheel it. I have 33s gy duratracs on my yj with stock d30/35 and I sometimes get carried away and romp down in the skinny pedal off the stoplight or pass someone the d35 to my surprise is holding it's ground. I have a auto behind the 4.0. I have a buddy with the same engine w/ a ax15 with 33 duratracs on is yj and he is not easy on the 35 and it holds it's own too.

I'm just giving a example I've heard many stories about them snapping from hillclimbs to just dumping the clutch on the street But yeah I haven't snap a d35 yet due I'm dd mine for now and occasionally offroad. I still take it easy but when I drive it on street I get on it alittle. most people wil rag the 35 but I I think it will be fine. Where I live though there aren't many hills but when I spot 1 I climbed them but take it easy ha

LOL! I just pulled a set of 5 lug 33x13.5 tires and black rims off of my 94 YJ! They are bias-ply's, so have no idea what I'm going to do with them yet. Too bad you live so far away, cost a mint to ship them to you!

Bias Ply I would think would be the best off road tire you can get.

Use to be all tire were bias ply. The were pretty rough at high speeds.

For trailers due to them swaying side to side radials suck.. Radials on a trailer make for the wrong tire to use.
