MB 72's my good friend, i went with the strength and less weight approach to it, not downing the 8's but i can't deal with too much weight till the Re-gear =) and thank you! The guy that put the rims on for me had to shake my hand he liked it so much!

Looks sharp. I like the MB72 and may still go with them but while looking at them I seen the MB Chaos 5. Discount tire said they were the same clearance and would fit the JK just like the MB72. They are 15's also. It's a toss up but I think it is what I may go with. I like the splash of silver and not just straight black.

Yeah i was thinking about the splash of silver really hard, but my final opinion on it was when i got to discount tire and i was asked if i was sticking with my stock rims i said no and my brain said the 72's for me. That was my deciding factor =) and def make a post of it when you get whatever you choose!

Definitely going with one or the other at this point. I can almost get the wheels for free for the difference in price from the 17" tires to the 15" tires in the same size. Probably not till first of year though. My 17 MTR's still have good life and are awesome tires.

But that is my other tough choice too. Either go with the Goodyear MT/R's w/kevlar again knowing they are a great tire but weigh a ton. Or taking into account weight and gas mileage and choosing the Goodyear Duratrac this time. Either one would be the 33/12.5/15

How is the gas mileage difference since the new shoes? Set up looks good.

Ouch. At least it looks good posed in your driveway.
