I wish I could keep 15in rims but I really want to purchase treadwrights which only have 33s for a 16in rim. Our builds are about the same progress wise, I can't decide if I want to cut the front fender lip or not either. With 31s I don't need to however with 33s they may rub that lip. Do yours rub?
Here's a clean fender trim -

No mine don't rub, but I'm sitting at like 5" on the front now haha, and yeah, I wish treadwright still had 33x12.50x15s. I'd be rocking a set. I don't understand why they discontinued that size

Outer Diameter:
33.2”
Tread Width:
9.1”
Section Width:
11.4”

If only I could find 16in Rubicom rims. Remember I'm still on 3.07 gears. I am going to swap in junkyard 3.55's or 3.73's soon. What do you think??
I have 10k miles on my treadwrights I love them they are amazing tires. Don't look too worn either. And I have three nails in one and it never penetrated the belt. They are build amazingly well.

I'm looking for some steel wheels for the jk if you want to buy some for me then trade for my jk wheels that'd be great

I don 't get it, its one of the most popular tire sizes. Didn't realize your xj was sitting on a larger lift, nice!

Your jk wheels are 17in and also not 5x4.5. What size guard dogs do you have? Load range E?

Tempted but I'm trying to stay away from adapters, otherwise I have my eye on a set of tj rubicon moab rims. Aluminum rims would be cool but so far it's looking like the black d-windows.

I have spacers on mine with no problems.

I want some steel wheels because I'm going to weld my own beadlocks
