Need pics of 15" wide tires

Do any of you guys run 14.5 or 15.5 tires. And if so, can you post a picture of your jeep so I can see how it looks. I'm ordering 38x15.5x15 SSRs and just wanted to see how they look sticking out that far and see if I want to get wider flares or not. It doesn't matter about the height of your tire, I was just wondering about the width. Thanks

I like. Thanks foreverjeepin. Not to sound like a biatch but do you happen to have one looking straight at the front or rear too. That's a good looking tj. (not to mention clean)

Thanks again foreverjeepin and thanks to you BESRK. Big Lime looks good in that picture. I had seen your pics before but I forgot you had wide tires on there. Looks great. I like the wider tire look. I was just wondering if I needed to order wider flares to make it look right but after looking at those pics, I think I'll leave it alone unless some cop says otherwise....but cops are cool about stuff like that around here so it shouldn't be a problem. Thanks again!

magicmudder,
Just a word of caution, if your axles are built, no problem. If not you can experience breakage. One of my other friends who runs the exact same tires as the blk TJ has gone through a few axle shafts already on his YJ. Those tires look great and do well off-road, but are hard on the drive train.....JP

Here are some old pics when my YJ was on 35*14.50 boggers. They measured 15.50 wide though

Thanks big yj...and foreverjeepin, thanks for the advice. I'm regearing right now and I'm also going with some one-piece axles in the AMC20. I was dumb in my decision to regear and go to one-piece axles instead of just swapping in some 44's or larger axles. It would have been cheaper/easier/stronger if I'd just swapped out axles, but I've got all the parts now (half way put together), so I'll run that setup for a while and go easy on it in the mud.
