36" MTZ on JK

I have been looking for a good deal on a tire upgrade and stumbled onto a set of 85% MT MTZ's. They are 36x16x15 !! My '08 has 2.5" lift and 2" wheel spacers on stock 17" wheels and tires. Any reasonable way I can shoe-horn those big rubbers under my rig? Any 15" rims (that will clear brakes) over 10" wide available?

Certain 15 wheels would fit but why would you want 10" wide rims? A 9 or even a 8.5 would work just fine. I think there is a sticky thread here somewhere that shows which 15" rims clears the calipers.

16" wide tire is a bit much for a 9" rim! Black Rock 997's come in 15x 12....so that's the plan.
