33" tire and wheel combos?

I am looking at running 33"s on 15in or 16in wheels. What are some great all-terrain tires. I live in Colorado and looking to get something good for winter and summer.

This car is used about 90% as a DD and 10% off-road.

I need a tire that is great off-road, but won't get eaten up by everyday highway driving.

I am currently looking at Duratechs. What is you opinion on good tires and wheels?


The picture attached is my Jeep, what have you seen that goes well on the sunburst orange.

Thanks in advance you guys.

That looks incredible, what kind of wheels are those? Do they make them for all Jeep colors. That is seriously a beautiful Jeep. The kind I always almost get in accidents on the highway because I can't stop staring.

MB TKO I bought mopar Gecko spray paint on ebay from Steve White motors and did the centers myself. Mud pic is with 2.5 terra flex lift .Snow is stock no lift .
Discount tire direct can hook you up with the rims and tires for a great price PM them on here.The paint cost me about $30 with clear coat and tape.Took me about an hour each center cap to do.Had enough paint left over to do door and dash trim.

Do you have a close-up pic of your wheel? (the Discount Tire pics have I believe a 6-star centre)

Here is a thread of "The Combo" (33x12.50 DuraTrac's on 15" rims)

I have a set of 5 ordered from Discount Tires. You get a $60 rebate from Goodyear right now and 2 $50 prepaid Visa cards from Discount Tire for the buying 5 rims and 5 tires.

33/12.5/20. Federal couragia m/t. I like the steering on 20's not squishy at all but still absorbs bumps good.

Looking at this same combo. Are you still running no lift? How far do they stick out? I may do just a budget boost later if it rubs. Mostly used as DD. I like the look. Also considered the Chaos 5 or TKO 15" w/duratrac too.

33x12.5" Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, polished 15" MB 72's. I like this look. Really not a fan of the flat black look or 18"+ wheels on a Jeep. Looks terrible to me.

Hey WashingtonJK66...I have the same tire on my '12 COD (same color even). My question is; did you use spacers with the wheels, or is the backspacing different from stock? I have the stock black Rubicon wheels; I don't have a lift yet (looking at AEV 2.5) and I get a little rub at full lock up front. Do you know if the lift will take care of the rub, or will I need to consider spacers? Thanks, and apologies for hijacking the thread.
