Question 15 inch Dick Cepek DC-2

Anyone know if these will fit on a 2010 Jk? I know the back spacing has to be around 3.75 for most 15 inch wheels to work but am wondering if this specific rim will fit with no issue? Anyone have any pictures?

Backspacing doesn't have to be 3.75" for 15" wheels to work; that's just what most of them are...

For example, your stock Jeep wheels are 6.25" bs. For most fatter tires to clear your air dam, sway bar links, etc, you want about 4.5" bs. With 3.75" bs, your tires will stick out 2.5" farther than they would on the stock wheels. Get it? The lower your bs, the farther your wheels will stick out from the Jeep.

As to whether or not the Cepek's will fit over your calipers (which is the real concern with 15's), shoot a PM to the guys at DTD. They're a forum vendor, and should be able to tell you, and recommend other wheels that'll work if that one won't.

They're at Discount Tire.

Thanks KBW! I know about backspacing and all that and I guess I should have been more specific in my question. I was wanting to know if they will hit the caliper. It turns out that the DC-2 isn't even available in a 15 inch with a 5x5 bolt pattern. So, thanks for the help but I would really like to switch from my current set up (MT Classic 17x9 with 35in BFG A/T) to a 15 inch rim and a little more aggressive tire! Thanks for the help though!
