Yes, your stock lug wrench will work with your Gorilla lugs as long as you have the lug key. (this key is provided with your hardware, I recommend keeping it with/in the vehicle at all times.)

Congrats, you're going to like em. Check your psi before driving home after you get them mounted. They came from DTD at 35 cold which will go up to or over 40 once you start driving on them and the sun is shinning. Set them for 28-30 cold and they will all go to 32 psi warmed up. The max cold on the side wall for them is 35.

Yep, The tech I spoke to told me they were max cap sent out, I have to air down when I get them mounted. And I rememberd to get the white lettering put on the inside. now the clock is ticking to get the lift put on and aligned/balanced. I can't wait!

I'm thinking of getting new wheels and Duratracs for my Sahara and wonder changes when you switch from 18" to 15" if the outer diameter stays at 32"? Is there a change in handling, mileage, or anything? The 15" tires and wheels are considerably cheaper.

If you go to the 33x12.5R15 duratracs then it will feel a little different from the change in tires size but not the wheel size. Tires on 15" wheels are MUCH cheaper than 18s.

I want new MB Chaos 5's and Duratrac's so bad but my current tires have plenty of tread left. Really want the new wheel but since changing wheel size makes it impractical right now.....grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Looks great!


I have a stock 2012 Sport its the base with the 16" tires.

Im wondering if these tires will fit without a lift? Also Do you have a link to the rims the old one did not work . Did you have to put any sort of spacers on these or did they just work.... I am reading other places it will work without spacers some forums say otherwise..

Sort of. They'll almost be touching the fender flares when you're on road and they'll rub the fender flares when you go offroad.

Try this. Take advantage of our sponsors here that sell tires and wheels. You can always get better pricing and customer service. I've PMed Discount Tire for a lot of answers. I've also seen Jason from Krawl Off-Road posting a lot here and indicating that they also sell tires and wheels.

No. MB72s and certain other 15" wheels have the proper backspacing and caliper clearance such that spacers are not needed. That is not true for all 15" wheels, which is why you're reading conflicting information. Confirm fitment before purchasing a 15" wheel.

MTH, thanks so much for the information!!! Do you recommend a certain lift kit for my JK? This was so much easier with my YJ... all I did was throw 31's on it on a 15" tire and it worked out perfect.

Thanks!

Too many choices to really discuss. It all depends on your needs, desires, and budget.

Look here (http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/jk-...ews-25157.html) and here (Jeep Lift Kits - Quadratec). Keep it under 2.5" for 33" tires.

Posting to track this thread.....

I've been researching and this is the exact setup I was looking at. Just wasn't sure if the 15s would fit on my 2012 without any modding.

I also wasn't sure on BS. I was looking at 4.5 but see this was 3.5. That means the tires would stick out further than w/ a BS of 4.5 correct? If so, I can live w/ that no prob.

Just to be clear...If I buy 5 wheels and tires between now and Monday, its $100 discount for the 4 wheels and tires plus $50 for WF member buying 5 tires for $150.00 off plus free shipping


Tempting

Let's see 33X12.5X15 are $194 each (they were $6 cheaper last month)
MB Chaos 5's are $106 each
plus required valve stem are $3.00 each (Don't need installation kit)

Makes it $1515 total minus $150 WF/black friday discount for $1365

They really look sharp !!!
Have some basic questions if you do not mind.
Since these have bigger sidewalls than standard Rubi, do they flex more and give better ride on pavement?
How does the ride change off-road?
Due to the taller sidewalls, are there any issues with the tires coming off the rims when running 15 or less air pressure?
How does on and off road compare to similar 35s on appropriate rims?
What is the ball park price difference between these and 35s on appropriate wheels?
