I got clear coat stripper and will put new clear coat on mine. Got items online from car restoration site if anyone is interested shoot me a pm. Wanted to keep my original wheels but clearcoat has aged a bit.

I would like to keep my original wheels on mine but was told that the biggest tire I could use was a 32/10.50 I'd rather run a 33. Do you experience any rubbing?

I previously had 33x12.50 on my factory 15x7 wagon wheel rims with a 3.5 SkyJacker spring lift and had no rubbing issues. Wheeled the the Jeep quite a bit and never had an issues except spinning an stock axle and bending one of the rims a little bit.

Keep the stock ones. I have always thought they were the best rim design for a CJ. I also like how they are one of the cheapest rims out there that you can get aftermarket. This way if you bend one, replacement is cheap and easy. A buddy of mine has a set of rims on his 95 mustang, and if he bends or cracks one again, he has to look used - he's been told many places you cannot buy Cobra-R rims new anymore... this makes me like my timeless wagon wheels even more!
