Yes you can you just need to have the properly spaced wheels. If you get them with 4" BS they will work.

15" on the same bolt pattern with 4" BS correct?

Is anyone running this setup? If so, please post some pics so I can see what it looks like! Thanks!

Corey,

Thats the exact tire/wheel setup I want to run. Two questions:

1. What lift do you have?
2. Have you done any wheelin? any rubbin?

OK three questions.

I'm running procomp street lock wheels with 33 12.50's
the wheels are 15 by 10 with 3.75 backspace.
Any less backspacing will hit. but I have had zero problems so far...I even ran a week without a lift with no rubbing. I now have a 2 inch lift and everything looks great.
They do stick out past the flares about 3 inches and make the jeep really wide.

I would stick to 3.75 or maybe 4 inch backspacing with the 15's any more backspacing than that would stick out a ton.

Thundercat...any chance you have a pic of two of your setup pre-lift? That is the exact same tire/wheel size combo I would like to go with. Even if you only have pics after the lift that's fine..I mainly want to see how that nice wide stance looks with 3.75 backspacing. Do you know what offset the wheels are?

Thanks

I have the Teraflex 2.5 BB with skyjacker shocks. I have no spacers and it only rubbed the airdam at full turn but I trimmed the ears off of it with a hacksaw and no more rubbing. The bumpstops do a pretty good job of keeping 35's from bottoming in the wheelwell when stretching. I have had no problems with the lift or the wheels.
