Shorter and wider. I've never seen a set on a JK that looked right. 15x8 is the way to go IMO.

Is their a decent 35x15 not on backorder?

And I could not believe the 35x15 MTR is only 6 lbs heavier than the KM2.

I had MTRS on my Tj. Although a 16" load E. those things were rolling boulders

Did you get 16 or 15 wheels jeeper? What did you ultimately go with?

No wheels yet.

My finger is on the trigger though

The 15" Vipers are still on my hit list.

I would like to add the front TB and replace a frozen UCA bolt I never was able to loosen, before I buy the tires.

Anytime now

My first choice is 12.50 on a 15x8, thats what I had when I had 33s on my cherokee and I aired down to 10psi without a problem. The 15x10s make me nervous of popping a bead that low. I will be switching back to 8 inch wide at some point.

15x10s I just don't think are a good choice for a JK. It may just be me but I've yet to see a pic of them on a jeep that I thought worked and looked good.

Back from the dead... let's see some more.

I'm in the market for 35's on 15's and I like what I'm seeing I just can't make up my mind.
