Let's see some TJ's w/ 15x10 rims.

Also, please include the tire size and backspacing.


Trying to decide on what backspacing I'll need for some 33x12.5's.

I think, based on my research, a 15X8 seems more universally recommended by many experienced Jeepers.

33x12.5x15 duratracs and 15x10 ultra wheels with 3.75" backspacing I believe.

I'll post pics of my YJ on 15x10s with 2.5" backspacing, because when I was looking for pics of 2.5 backspaced wheels I couldn't find many. Just to give you an idea. 33x12.50 tires. Stock suspension.



I love the stance mine has.



My cousin's TJ pn 35x12.50s with 15x10s and -46mm offset which I believe is around a 3.7" backspace.

Do you have a front to back shot of this? The rims I've been looking at (AR-23's) are only offered in a 3.75" backspacing on a 15x10 and our calculations put the tires at being just over 4" from the fenders... For this reason, I've deciding on opting for the 15x8's, instead.

While you may disagree and prefer the 15x10's (me too, BTW), looking on various forums, 15x8 seems to be the more preferred choice.

A 15x8 will help keep the bead when you air down. Low PSI + wider wheels = Higher potential for blowing beads.

Here you go. Keep in mind I have the wider Sahara flares.

I realize that, but I don't see that being much of an issue. If the locker and winch don't get me out, then I probably won't be in that situation alone.

Hmm... Mine is a 60th AE w/ the Safari and other packages all thrown together... so I think it'd be the same fenders.

Yea its weird, I think its just the offset and low center of gravity that gives it the look. I mean my cousins 35x12.50s in this pic compared to mine look like pizza cutters lol. These were actually his old 33s he gave me when he got new tires since his is a daily and mine isn't, so these will last me for now even though there isnt much tread and they are very noisy because the PO of hia jeep didn't balance them correctly I think.
