Any ideas and why u chose this setup.
If going with a 15" and wheeling, you definitely want a 15 X 8 with 3.75" backspacing. If not wheeling much, you could also go with 15 X 10. 15 X 8 is better for wheeling because the tire will bulge up more for better grip/handling when aired down.

The 3.75" BS is so the wheels will clear the brakes on the '12+.

If wheeling it, you're better off with an MT over an AT. MT will have better grip and many like the GY MTR/K will have thicker side wall. AT will give you more mileage on road.

See attached for a list of wheels that are known to work. I have MB TKO. MB 72 are also very popular and inexpensive. Mine were $92 each.

Thanks suicideking, so you recommend a 15 X 8 rather than the 15 X 10. 15 if its for wheeling?
I think ill go for the 15 X 10. 15 since it is my daily driver.
As for the tires arent the MTs a bit too loud and not that great on the road?

Yeah, think the 15 X 10 will give better road handling.

The AT will definitely be better for a daily driver. You will get more mileage and won't be loud. BFG AT get the best mileage. GY Duratrac handle better in snow + one of the best looking AT's.
