Arrow New one

I am new to this forum, just thought I would say HI
I have a stock 08 JK I just purchased, Just put some RR seat covers on
put in a TF leveling kit, ordered a front RR bumper with small stinger, and I have a Ramsey 8500 lb Winch to install when the bumper comes in.I also ordered some 130 watt KC daylighters to install with the bumper. I am looking at tires and would like some sugestions that will fit on this set up.
I am thinking 33x12.5?

That all sounds great! Congratulations and welcome to the forum. You might need spacers as well for the wheels due to the width unless you're getting new wheels as well.

Thanks

Thanks to all.. My JK is a Rubicon (Black) I have no problem with going to another wheel, however I would like to know which 15" rims will work. I think I need 4" bs on the wheels but I am not sure which will clear the brakes. I like the more rubber less wheel look on Jeeps. Anyone have this set up?

There are only a select few 15's that will fit because of the large brake calipers. 16 would be a safer bet.

Welcome to the forum !! I see alot of Soft 8 Cragars in the 15" size wearing 33" - 35" tires. I am assuming they are not using spacers .

Seats

The seat covers seem to be fine. They fit very well, I dont know how they will be if they get a little wet. I Would purchase them again. They should keep the heat off the leather. I purchased them on Amazon, about 200.00 with shipping for front and rear.
