Yeah cragar rims are pretty good. I'd get the black ones but thats just me. Get the 15X8 and backspacing may vary, I'm not to familar with needed BS for your vehcile.

The tires are pretty good from what I hear. I'v seen them on several vehicles and the people say they are great for the road, decent on rocks, but suck in the mud. If I remember correctly, they are a bit softer composistion so they may wear a bit fast than a harder tire, but this is the reason for better traction.

Yeah that is the correct bolt pattern. I'm not exactly sure how long they will last. I'm sure they will last you a while depending how you drive, but I'm just saying they aren't going be be as long as a harder tire like BFGs or Goodyears.

Well just remember a few things. Rubbing can always be fixed by some means. A friend of mine has 32s on a BB but I can't remember if the rims are aftermarket or stock.

Also the bigger tires, the more stress on the axle shafts. The D35s are deffinatly not the strongest axle to have when getting bigger tires. It should handle a 32, but just a possiblilty in making your descision.

Torque is decreased with bigger tires. I have 32s and notice a big diffrence compared to stock. I have an auto tranny so its not that big of a deal. If you have a manual, it will be a bit tougher.

But, bigger tires means more ground clearnace, which is always good. Hopefully someone with a TJ will chime in here cause I really have limited knowledge on a good setup for them,

I just put on a RE 2" BB and HAD to go with 30" tires, due to my wondeful 3.07 gears. I was going to go with 32's until I found out the bad news about the 3.07's. Next year I'm planning on going to 4.10, maybe 4.56 gearing with 33's. I'll add a 1" BL and probably a 1" MML. I've got plenty of clearance now, but when I add the 33's, it should still be O.K.
