Pictures of Dick Cepek 15" X 10 wide wheels on TJ?

Has anyone got any pictures of a set of Dick Cepek DC-2 15" X 10" wide wheels with 35" tires mounted, on a TJ Wrangler? The specs say they have a -47mm offset, and that makes me a little nervous. I'd like to see how far they stick out before buying a set.
Thanks in advance .

I found this old forum thread, but only one of the replies had 15"X10" DC-2 wheels, and it doesn't give me a good front on or rear view:

That's 3.65" backspacing. They will stick out 1" more than mine if you have the narrower non Rubicon flares.

Thanks for the pictures. I have 6" Xenon flat fender flares on mine.
I'm thinking of buying just a single wheel first, and mounting my spare on it, and pitting it on the front to check it. If I like it, I'll buy four more. If I don't, I'm only out the mounting and balancing, shipping, and restocking fee.

are you set on 15x10 rims? most prefer 15x8 with 3.75"-4" backspacing

I have 8" wide wheels on it now. But the manufacturer recommends a wheel from 8.5" to 11" wide, with 10" being optimal. 35" tires on a 15" wheel already have a lot of side wall to begin with, but throw on top of that a wheel that is undersized on width... well it feels a bit wobbly to me going around corners.

I never liked having dark wheels with a black painted jeep anyway, so I think some brighter wheels would add some much needed contrast to the color scheme.

I found these pics online today of a jeep with 15X10 wheels, and I don't think it looks half bad.

Anybody know whether these will fit on a 2010 Jk? I realize the deleting must be around 3.75 for most 15 inch wheels to work however am contemplating whether this particular edge will fit with no issue? Anybody have any photos?

Go with 15x8, not 15x10, if you offroad. The wider 10" wheel width makes it harder for the tire to stay seated when the tire is aired down for offroad use. That simply means you can't air down as much with a 10" wheel as you can with an 8" wide wheel. NO an 8" wide wheel is not too narrow for even 35x12.50 tires it's the preferred and most commonly chosen wheel width.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

I know what you're saying, I've read that before. But I can't remember a time when I aired my tires down lower than 15 psi. If I really want to air down lower than that, then I ought to be getting wheels with bead locks. I suppose that's something to consider...

I never go below 10 psi on any of my Jeeps with 10" wide wheels. I don't think I would with 8" wide either. I had the charcoal Mammoth Boulder wheels on my white Sahara and thought about getting some for my current Jeep for a change.

They fit with the proper bolt pattern, backspacing and size.

FWIW here's a look at my TJ. I'd have to check on the rim width. The tires are 33x12.50R15LT.

Those are 8" wide wheels.
