33/10.50/15 owners come in ???

Those that are running a 33/10.50/15, what wheel and back spacing are you running? Picked up some BFG KM2s for a killer deal and looking at some new wheels. Right now I have 1"Springs/1" BL and Metalcloak fenders. My current wheels are Ultra 164s 15x7 (3.75" BS I believe).

Want to stay with aluminum wheels as well. I've looked at 15x8 from Black Rock 909B (4"BS) and Mamba M1Rx (4.5" BS). Just getting some opinions from the current users out there.

Thanks in advance!

I had 33 x 10.5 R15 BFG AT on an LJ with 15 x 8 with 4.5 BS American Racing Ansen Sprint wheels.

No problems. There was more than enough clearance (like 2" clearance) for full turning radius with 15 x 8 and 4.5 BS. It turned on a dime with no rubbing.

It would have worked with 5" BS too. Maybe even with stock 5.5 BS.

However, I had Currie Antirock swaybar (more clearance than stock) and JKS lower control arms (more clearance than stock).

Stock swaybar and LCA would have less clearance than I had.

However, I think 4.5 BS would give plenty of clearance with stock sway bar and LCAs.

33x10.50 km2's on ion wheels (3.25BS). No rubbing issues with 2" springs. I've even considered putting the stock springs back on.

I plan on going with either 33x10.50 or 32x11.50 on 15x8 Mamba MR1X wheels. This jeep belongs to "pierps" on this forum.

Are those Mambas 15 x 8 that look like Moab 16 x 8?
