Level 8 Tracker Wheels...?

Hello all.... I have been searching the forum and others in regards to these wheels. I have not found anyone who has them on their TJ, only JKs....

Im about to order the 33x12.5x15 Duratracs, along with the Level 8 Tracker wheels from DiscountTire, and have a Zone 4.25 Combo lift ready to go in..

The specs are, from DT..

Level 8 Tracker

15x8
5x4.5
3.30 BS
-30 offset - I think thats what the DT rep said

The backspacing seems crazy...I'm guessing they will stick out close to 2" from the stock flares

Anyone have any advice, or experience with these wheels?

I've never seen wheels with that little backspacing.I go with 3.75" and they stick out over 2" past the flares.

MT Classic Locks (15x8) have a 3.3125 BS.

My 10.5 wide tires stick out at least an inch beyond my wider LJ flares. If you have the normal (skinnier) flares, you'll have about 3" of uncovered tire. At first I liked the look 8 years ago on a stock Jeep. Now I'm wanting something in the 3.75-4" flavor. On the positive side, tire clearance is a non issue with suspension and steering parts.

I could go out and put 33x12.5 tires on my wheels and they won't rub on anything. I don't like how far out they are anymore and checked to see if I would have rubbing issues using a wheel with more backspacing. I will admit I don't know if the steering stops were messed with by the PO, but they look to be stock (not spaced out).

I'll take one tomorrow at work. Keep in mind I have the wider factory flares and only 10.5" tires.

My flares are 4.5" wide. My tires stick out 2" beyond them (measured from the sidewall bulge, tread is more like 1.5"). So 6-6.5" from the body.

I can take a front shot when I get home if you want.
