I have run narrow and wide 33s. The narrower got WAY BETTER MPG and were way better performers at everything on and off road, except sand. I don't rock crawl.
Sand was the only thing wider was better at, but the narrow tires were good enough at sand when aired down.
I recommend narrower, but it doesn't matter what I recommend, does it? All that matters is the current fad, right? Be a sheep and obey the current fad. Wider baaaaaa! All the other sheep have them. Baaaaa!
If you are a hard core rock crawler or drive UP tall steep sand dunes, then wide makes sense, but for mild to moderate rocks and sand, an aired down narrow is good enough. For all else on and off road narrow is best, especially Winter roads.
BTW - this topic comes up every two weeks. I must have politely answered it dozens of times. If you searched you'd find this topic has been beat to death a hundred times over last few years. Narrower is best for DD. Period.
Who says wider look better? Narrow 33s look taller than wide 33s.
Here is s list of available 33 x 10.5 R15 http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f15/l...tires-1533186/
These are all Load C, which is best for small SUVs, IMO.
There are also 255/85R16 that are 33 x 10 R16. I recommend load D, not load E.
Cooper ST, BFG MT KM2, Trxus MT, Maxxis Bighorn, and a few others.
