Hey Doc, what mods, caliper grinding? I am considering putting 35/12.5/15 mtrks or stts on US Wheel 70s 15x8 from Summit. They are 3.75 bs and I wonder if they will rub the caliper. I have a 07 jku on a 2.5" coil lift and am prepared to cut the pinch seam and fenders. Just wonderng about the caliper. Uniques are an option if I buy thru DT

Be aware that some tire shops won't mount a 12.5" wide tire on an 8" rim.
Thx, I meant brand and where to order from. Wasn't sure if there were any preferred vendors on here etc

Steel wheels they all made the same? I'll start doing some searching for prices.

For the most part yeah, But stick with a good name for piece of mind though. I ran pro comp street locks and were ok for what they were. Go to summit racing, They usually have the best price on wheels like soft 8's.

I have ran aero and basset wheels made for dirt track cars even. They have free shipping etc IIRC. But if you can swing a set of alloys, Its well worth it IMO. Ion and black rock make some that are decent priced and have the proper back space.
Don't worry about the offset, Just go for 15x8" with 3.75BS. I run 3.5BS and have never had any 'premature wear' on any parts either so IMO nothing to worry about.
