keep my stock CJ wheels, or go new?

Just looking for some advice and input....
I am going to a 33x10.50 15 and am on the fence about going to a M/T Classic ll in a 15x8, or just keeping my stock CJ Laredo wagon wheels.

What would you do??

I kept my stock wheels and went with the 33/10.50's. I'm glad I did. I have owned several jeeps with 15x8's and 33/12.50's.

Got any pics of your 33x10.50 with stock wheels? What didn't you like about the 15x8s?

Keep the stock wheels. I put some 33x12.50's on 15x7 in factory spokes and they were fine.

What would you do??
I am not a fan of the wagon wheels, even in chrome. Given the two choices I would go with the Classic II's in 15x8. If the Laredo wheels are 15x7, I would step up to 15x8's. I have run 12.5/285's on 6.5"-7" wide wheels and always had to air down to get a full contact patch.

Love the look of factory wagon wheels in both chrome or painted. I had 33x12.50 on mine before I restored the Jeep, now I have 32x11.50 on sandblasted and powder coated OEM wagon wheels. My friend came over and applied the original black colored pinstripe on them also.

I would go stock also. I went with 31x10.50x15 because I wanted as close to OEM as I could get and the 31x10.5x15 Goodyear Duratracs reminded me of the optional Goodyears AT's offered as an option on the wagon wheels in 1978. I've seen a couple CJ7's with 33x10.5's on the OEM wagon wheels and they look good.

Here's my 31 Duratracs.

The stock wheels are well suited for the CJ. Keep 'em.
