15 mbs and 33 duratracs

I am planning on pulling the trigger on this setup...I read they will fit stock and not rub under normal driving...but it seems most people still run a lift...also will the spare fit on the stock carrier

I know the MB72's will fit. Not sure about others...check with DTD (forum vendor...PM to Discount Tire). They can tell you. Generally, most of the 15" alloy wheels will clear your brake calipers, while most of the 15" steelies will not.

33's will fit w/out rubbing provided you have wheels with 4.5" bs or less (which would include the MB's that I know of). If you wheel your Jeep, though, the tires might rub your fenders. That's why most peeps get at least a TeraFlex leveling kit ($130).

Your spare will work on the stock carrier, though you'll probably have to buy some Daystar Bump Stops to make sure the tire will stay snug against the tailgate, due to the change in wheel backspacing.

Welcome to WF.
