^Finally! Do you have a shot from the front to see how far they let the tires stick out? How wide are the 33's?

Ok, now the questions begin. 285/75/16 or 305/70/16? Do they rub? Are you running any spacers? Did you measure the backspacing before you mounted them up?

Factory MOAB's have 4.5" of backspacing. I was told by the pukes at Quadratec thes Mamba's are running 4" of BS. Can you confirm this? It took 2 days to get a call back from Quadratec, they had to call Mamba for clarification and I still don't trust I got the right answer.

Black looks good on your khaki jeep.

Sorry for all the questions but inquiring minds want to know!!

Is the rule less backspacing sticks out further and higher backspacing tucks the tire in more. How do I measure my backspacing on my wheels.? I think their 15x8 or 15x10(not likely but who knows).

oops....your right. 5" of backspacing and quadratec said these were .5" less at 4.5". Problem is my AEV Bridgers are at 4.5" and they rub w/285/75/16s mounted up and they are only 11.5" wide. That's the reason for all the questions.

Tires are 33x12.50. They look nice and do not stick out too far. No rub at all. Lift is 4"s. This is the only shot I have at the moment.

These are the machined faced mambas. The best thing about the rims is the offset. With a 2 inch lift on the wk you do not need to trim the bolt or mess with the pinch weld to fit bfg all-terrain 265/70. No spacers needed. I was a little nervous that the rims would look ghetto. I am glad it doesn't, well at least i do not think so.

I really like these wheels! I am torn between these, Cepek DC-1's, Cepek DC-2's and Mickey Thompson Classic II's for my next wheels.
