About to buy My JKUR Monday* Newb post alert


Few Newb questions,

Looking to add Tire/Rim pkg with out adding Spacers
I Know 33x12.5x15 and MB72's 15X8 5-127 19MTB Works with no Spacers.

now if i wanted to change the rim to Black rocks 15X8 5-5/5.5 -12MTB
between the 19MTB and 12MTB...how can i read this so i no what needs BS.
LOL what dose the 19MTB even mean?

Ive been looking at a few Rims just not sure if they will fit with out Spacers.

Not sure if im going 15 or 16. So if anyone can give the correct readings to match 15inch 33x12.5x15 with correct rim readings eg....15X8 5-5/5.5 -12MTB
15X8 5-127 -30MTB

and 16 inch LT305/70R16E2 with rim readings eg..16X8.5 5-127 -6MBL /
16X8.5 5-127 -6MTB

Just trying to understand how to read the sizes. looking at 2.5" TeraFlex coil lift
and just want to put on tires and rims with no spacers. Not sure what size to go , all i no is i want DuraTracs

sorry for all the Info hope you guys can make sense of it and help me out

Your bolt pattern is 5x5.

Your wheels need to have 4.5" of backspacing or less. The lower the number, the more your wheels will stick out from your Jeep. Most 15" wheels have backspacing around 3.75" or less, which means your wheels will stick out past your fenders. In some states that can get you a ticket...

If you go with 15's, make sure the wheel you choose will fit over your brake calipers. Most alloy 15's will; the majority of steel 15's will not. If in doubt, check w/the DTD rep here on the forum, or call DTD. They can tell you.

Good luck!
