So i wanted a 15x8 with 33/1250s but can not find a wheel i like. I did find a 16x8.5 one at DTD the zx i think. anyway what are the pros/ cons of a 33/1250/15 set up and a 305/70/16 with the duratrac? I know more money for the 16 set up but I like the wheel and the tire will actually be close to a 33 1250 if i go with the 16. things i noticed so far was the 305 is load range E and the 33/1250 is a load range c. the added weight sucks but wonder if the load range e will have stronger sidewall. any expert advise would be very appreciated as I am really stuck on this one. Thanks

Every Jeep is born good, its what you do with it that matters!
the load range e will not have any stronger of a sidewall.. Im not sure you'll be able to get away with 4.5in of bs with the 16x8 and a 12.5in wide tire. Though I can't say that 100% for sure so someone will have to verify that.. Load range E tires are not meant for something as light as a wrangler so im not sure you will like it however with that said I know of people on here running load range e tires on there 2dr wrangler and are happy. The lift itself is enough to clear the 33's.. Not sure on whether you will have to adjust your bump stops or not.. likely

That is good to know.. I swore with the TJ/LJ's you had to be in the 3.75-4.25 range to run a 12.5in wide tire
It's close...I'm running 315/75R16 DuraTracs on 16x8 rims w/4.5" bs. When I was installing my lift, I had a scare with my rear sway bar links. Looked like they for sure weren't gonna clear. Once I got the Jeep back on the ground, though, all was well.
