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

Griffin -

Your Jeep has really come a long way. Thing is b@d@$$! Locked f/r - awesome! Really cool to come back to your thread and see all the progress you've made.

BTW - the Guard Dogs, get them. I know of a couple guys that run them and they have no complaints. In fact, Treadwright has there own tire now, isn't even a retread. Even at than, the retreads they made/make are legit.

Thank you Mike, it's great to hear from you. I'm set on ordering the 285/75/16's Guard Dogs tonight, just trying to decide on rims. The new design you speak of is the B2B (bead to bead), Treadwright says
"during the process for the bead to bead remolds, we buff not only the old tread, but also the casing sidewall. This allows us to apply a new branded veneer that is much more resistant to ozone and weather cracking."
I promised myself once I get the 33's I'm done looking at tires for a while. From stock to 235's, then the 31's, now the 33's in one year.

Once they arrive I will have to hit the trails. Pics to come
