Quick question

Hello all I just bought a 2013 Jeep wrangler sport and I am loving it! What I'm not loving are my mail rated tires. I want to get some 33x12.5r15 tires (duratracs), the thing I have a question about are what wheels to go with I love the Black Rock D-widows with the black center and polished lip or the mb tko's. One more route I have considered is the 31x10.5r15 because I know with that setup I wont rub for sure but I do love the way the 33's look. I don't have any plans on lifting my jeep anytime soon and I don't want to rub, also I don't off road if I ever do it will just be trails. Just want to make sure either of these setups will fit properly before I drop the money.

Thanks
Joe

33x10.50 or 33x12.50 on 15" wheels will work. Try to stay around 4" of backspacing if you can...+ or - a little bit. I recommend 15x8 wheels. 15x10s look ridiculous.

Do you know what the BS on the d-widows is?

Not sure. But I think most of the Black Rock brand wheels that are alloy like that are around 5" backspacing. But if you order from discounttiredirect.com you can see exactly what the specs are on the wheel in the shopping cart.

the Black Rock 909's are 4" BS, I've had mine for a while and still haven't gotten tired of them

Ok guys well I think I'm going to stay away from 33's because for my uses I don't need that big of a tire, I'm now leaning towards 265/75/16 duratracs with Level 8 strike 5's. Opinions?
