98 Jeep YJ - MB TKO

Hello everyone!

I've searched high and low, no results.

Can MB TKO wheels work on an 89 YJ?

They are sold in 5-4.5 bolt patterns, 15x8's.

I currently have about a 2.5" Rancho lift and plan on going with 33x12.5x15 Goodyear Duratracs and HOPEFULLY the MB wheels will work.

Anyone have any luck with these?

The wheel size and lug pattern are not the problem. Those will work on your YJ. The problem you will have is the backspacing on the wheel.

Specially running a 33X12.50, too much back spacing (like a stock wheel) and the tire is going to rub the front springs when you turn.

And your wheel wells are going to be stuffed completely full of tire with only a 2.5" lift and trying to run 33" tires. I hope you plan on keeping it a mall crawler, cause it isn't going to like chewing on those Duratracs when its off road.

'87 YJ, 4.2L built and bored, 8" of lift, 8.8 rear, AX15/NP 231J, Tom Woods drive shafts, Flat fenders, 12,000LB winch, Custom bumpers, Rattle can paint job. Never completed...

I ws planning on putting in a 1.25 BL to help the stuffage. I dont want it to be a mall crawler either. I guess i nees to search for wheels with at least 3.5-3.25 BS. Thanks for the input!!
