Tires for stock rims

I'm looking for some 33's that will fit the stock 98 zj laredo wheels. I've been looking around and can't seem to find the right tires for the wheels. I'd rather save money keeping my stock wheels rather than purchacing new wheels as well. If anyone knows of the correct wheel size please let me know

33x12.50's x 15. If you have 16“wheels then 285\75\16 or 305\70\16

personally not a fan of 12.5s on 7" rims (this has been discussed 1000 times everyone has made their own mind). Personally I wouldn't go wider than 10.5" on a 7" rim. So I'd stay 33x10.5 or a 32x 10.5" at the same time, why 33s? what's your gear ratio? do you wheel or just drive on the streets? are you lifted?

12.50's are ok on stock wheels. Not ideal but they keep a great bead aired down. I ran them for several years on stock wheels. 8" wide wheels are perfect. I wouldn't go wider than that for 12.50's.

no disagreement, but for $20-50 a wheel for a cheap set of steelies, if he's trying to run 12.5 wide on stock wheels he's gonna spend $100 on wheel spacers anyways, why not just go new wheels? When I picked up my current jeep it had 33x12.5 on 15x10, hated it. When I went to 35's went back to 15x8 for 12.5, no issues aired down to 6psi lol. why i suggested a 10.5" over a 12.5" if he wants to keep stock wheels.


But a lot of this comes back to wtf is he doing with his jeep.

I'm not really a fan of steel wheels. They deform easier and are not always true. Heavier too.

after taking a chunk out of aluminium they are too until it's repaired. half the cars that come into where I work need to be repaired just from chunks taken out by hitting the granite curbs around here.

honestly i get what you guys are saying, I dont disagree with your point and it's your vehicle. Steel wheels are a cheap option for a reason, draw backs, but they're still an option
