Help me decide

The time has come to replace the tires on my beloved TJ. Right now i'm running 35's BFG all terrians on a 15x10 aluminum wheel. I thought i would like the look of the 35;s on a 10 inch wide wheel,but they do rub when i go wheeling. I'm thinking of swaping for a 15x8 soft 8 wheels and maybe a 33 inch tire. This is my daily driver and i do like to offroad as much as i can but i also would like to get some more out of my suspension. I'm still running the stock gears which are 3.07 and yes it is a slug. Hopefully i'll be able to swap soon. Help me make a desicion please.

15x8 rim with a set of Falken Rocky Mountain ATS's or Wild Peak AT's

I've got the rocky mountains on my 99 (32x11.5x15) and they're awesome. They're quiet on road and do great on trails. Plus they're not a bad price...check em out!

A 15x8 with a 33x12.5 will help you regain some pep and some flex....

U have a picture on your jeep? I just bought the new MTR's and are very unhappy with the load E rating. Their to harsh for my liking on pavement. Anyhow im considering a 32 inch tire with my 2 inch BB. They seam to be a good tire and not as expensive.

Nice, I'm deciding what I'm going to do still. My tires are badass but I am having a rough time getting used to them.

Thats a sweet rig you got there. Man i was just looking at the BF goodrich 33 12.50 km2 and the 35 km2 and there is not much differance in price. I'm really thinking of the 33's with an eight inch wheel though.
