Wheel Size / Duratrac Help

Hey everyone,

So it's been a while since I've had a TJ and am trying to help my mother out. She's looking at the following:

2004 Jeep Sahara <stock, no lift>

The wheel she wants is a Unique 297 but it comes with following sizes:

15X7 5-4.5 0B
15X8 5-4.5 -12B
15X8 5-4.5 6B

I want to wrap the 31" Duratrac's around the wheels. Can you tell me which wheel will fit best?

Thanks,
Marcus

I have 15x 8 3" back set and the tire stick out about 1" on my rubi , The flairs are 3/4 wider on Rubi and sahara i think.

so I would think 15x8 4.5 should be good.
The dura tracks are a good tire .

For a 31x10.50 tire, I'd go 15x7 which is optimal for that width tire. If you plan to ever go to 32x11.50, 33x12.50 or 35x12.50, I'd go 15x8 which will still work fine for the 31x10.50 tire.
