I agree. Like the rims. What are they? You got a lift on this?

I was JUST LIKE YOU....I just ended up with 33 Duratracs and AEV 17 Savagre's with an AEV 2" spacer lift. I am VERY pleased. if i was on the farm and never planned to live in the city...i would prolly due the 35's. but i am not lol.

I HIGHLY suggest you to 33's and a 2-3 inch lift. you wont be disappointed.

sorry no pics yet. soon

They are moto metals, 17 inch riding on Kelly TSR285/70/17. No backspacing.

Lmt makes something similar. I saw them in black on another wrangler the other day in a parking lot.

All wheels have backspacing. Those appear to be Moto 951s, which are 9" wide with a -12 offset, so that is approximately 4.5" of backspacing.

How are 33's with 3.21 gears? Any issues?

Something I should have looked into earlier

33s will be no problem.

Especially if they're lightweight, even more especially if you've got a manual transmission, and even more especially if you've got a 2012.

I have a 2010 4 door with a manual trans and 3.21 gears, and am running 33x12.5R15 DuraTracs on a lightweight alloy wheel. It feels no different than stock.

I'm really happy with the 33's on my JKU. I just have a leveling kit in the front, but here is how it looks.

What do you think about a 2011 4 door auto with 33s and these Rugged Ridge?

This probably won't happen for a little while, just curious more than anything.

Bigger tires impact the pre-2012 autos much more than the manuals.

This is because the pre-2012 autos are terribly undergeared right from the factory. For example, if you have a non-Rubicon, you have 3.73 gears right now, but could easily go up to 5.13 on your STOCK tires. And your jeep would ride great--you'd be a lot happier with your power. By contrast, putting those same gears in my manual would be too much for highway driving--4.56 would be about as high as a manual trans could go with stock tires.

That said, plenty of pre-2012 auto owners get 33s (or even 35s) without regearing. I fully expect 33s would effect your power, but probably not dramatically so unless they were very heavy. I don't know the weight of the tires you're looking at or the weight of those wheels, but presuming you kept matters reasonable it should be alright.

Yeah, 2012 with a manual. I'm planning on the TKO's with DuraTracs. Have the TF leveling kit already to get installed. Just need to find a free day

Thanks for the help. Sounds like I will be ok

Alright all.
I've been reading up And looking at all the GREAT pictures and totally dreaming over here about what to put on my 08 JKU...

I'm a newbie and am itching to get some tires and wheels. I love the look of the Black Rock Viper 15's with 33 duratracs.
I'm about 90% sure I'm going to get this setup but want any final input from all you pros out there. Any last minute......
- feedback?
- gotchas I should watch out?
- look out for this.....?
- have you considered?

I will be mostly on the road with some light off road adventures but nothing too serious right now. Once I do start getting into the mud, will definitely look at a 2-3 inch lift but for now want to leave it stock.
I have 255/70/R18 on right now.

Thanks in advance!
Dano

What gear ratio would you recommend?

I was hoping to put 33s on at some point but I would like not to spend a ton of money to re-gear just to put bigger tires on. Do I have any other options?

Not that I won't save the money to do it because I would love them but just want to see what other options there are.

TIA
