I got mine from Jegs. Decent price and shipped really fast. There were 2 to choose from, I personally went with this wheel because it has less of a back space and doesn't look like the wheel is sticking out to far. (Note the "p" at the end of the item number). I have 31/10.5 and it looks good IMHO, no rubbing. 15x8 5x4.5

15x8 with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern. I think they only make them in 4" backspace. Also center caps are usually not included and run about 10 bucks each. Or paint your hubs black like i did.

15x7 will make the sidewalls have more of that balloon shape if you dont ever plan on getting wide tires.

Very nice wheels, i have the 15x8s with duratrac 33x12.5s on them on my jk.

Thanks so much. That link shows a backs pacing of 4 3/4. Will that fit stock ? Sorry if its a dumb question.

Yes it will fit stock. I had 30 9.5 on mine and it was fine. I went with that bs because I don't like the wheels sticking out so far. I have 31 10.5 on them know with no issues.

I would never run a 9.5" tire on a 8" wheel. 7" is the widest but 6" is optimal. Most guys run a 12.5" tire on a 8" wheel

So the 30x9.5 tire that came stock on the 15x8 stock Ravine wheel is a bad? Huh

Not necessarily bad. Just too wide for my tastes. Everyone uses their rig differently thus a variety of opinions exist
