I also agree on the "Honey Glazed "look!
You're talking about the black TJ right? I believe those rims are the 3.75 BS and yes 15x8

the rims are 15x8 with 4" bs on both the blue TJ and the black TJ. 3.75 would be too much IMO.

that ice got me a cracked windshield and cracked Hella covers....guess it was better than cracked hella lenses though.

haha...that was our crazy freeze last year. we get those every other year or so around here. usually lasts a day at the most. but that's plenty of time for people to pile up the highways with accidents b/c they can't drive in it.
if we get to a point where my tires have iced over, i'll go ahead and stay home for the day.

yeah thats what i was wondering my self. From memory and the news last week, Nevada got ice that froze the canals and flooded a lot of towns.

I find it funny how we here in chicago had 60 degree F weather that week normal is bellow 20.

Damn, what'd you use to chop that? I really like the way that looks, and I want to do it to mine now.

You must not remember the Ice Bowl between Dallas and Miami on Thanksgiving Day back in 1993.

sure, but 1/4" is still 1/4". if it didn't matter, they wouldn't offer the two sizes.
it doesn't really matter much for us here in texas as far as tire coverage laws because we don't have them, but in other states, that 1/4" could be all the difference with a picky cop.
