Planning wheel/tire combo

Already have a 2" spring lift installed. Need to know if Pro Comp's 33x12.5x15 mud terrians will clear if I use Bushwacker flat fender flares? I'll adjust the steering full lock to prevent rubbing. Website says they have a 32" height.

As for wheels, I'm leaning towards the Dick Cepek DC-2 Wheel 15x10. I need something coated to stand up to the elements near the ocean. Any tips would be appreciated.

i think they will rub if you flex disconnected. lots of people will tell you to get 15x8 wheels with 12.5 width tires because it helps hold them on. either will work though.

Just an FYI, Pro Comp tires have a bad track record in terms of wear.

You should be ok with flat flares. x2 on pro comp tires.... their M/T's are very soft and wear very quickly on road...

Thanks for the info on the wear. I definitely want something that will last awhile, not be too noisy on the road. Most off road will be light trails, sand and some rocks but a daily driver.

I'll stay with the 5x8 wheels too.
