Jaxon1023 No problem if you go 15x8 they won't be as deep as the 15x10 if your wondering. I don't air down and plan on going bigger one day so the 15x10's are what I went for.

tjandlax nice same color as mine. great looking rim/tire combo. i guess im just gonna have to lift sooner than i thought. great example. thank you jaxon haha

Jaxon1023 33x13.5x15 nitto mud grapplers on 15x10's with gorilla spline lugnuts. I absolutely love the tire/rim combo

eugenesonrisa I have them with 33x10.5 and have about 1" sticking out past the fender. Total speculation on the actual distance.
06-06-2013 08:47 PM
tjandlax i will be using 30x9 tires for now. eventually 33x12.50 prob, but will be lifted and will be able to do different flairs if needed at that point in time. Backspacing right now is 4.5 and they barely stick out.
06-06-2013 08:15 PM
Jerry Bransford How much further out they will protrude is impossible to know without knowing what size tires you'll be installing on them vs. the tire size & wheel backspacing you have now.

I can say that 3.31" of backspacing isn't even close to being enough to make me happy.
06-06-2013 07:57 PM
tjandlax So im about to buy them and im worried about the backspacing being 3.31 im at stock height still and im fine with the wheels sticking out past the flares but i dont wanna look ridiculous. Those of you with the wheels can you give me an idea of how much they will protrude?
05-10-2013 07:09 PM
Jerry Bransford You will have drivetrain vibrations any time a suspension lift in a TJ is taller than 2". Sometimes even a 2" suspension lift can cause enough vibration to need a t-case drop.
05-10-2013 06:50 PM
tjandlax No worries just thought it was cool that you had the same wheels and lift im prob gonna do. any trouble with drive line vibes?

tjandlax so i want to get black lugs also. what is the difference between an acorn and a spline drive are there benefits to one or the other?
05-05-2013 09:45 PM
tjandlax very nice

Jerry Bransford 33's usually come in 12.5" widths with 10.50 widths harder to find. If you air your tires down for offroading, a 15x8 will be the right choice for even the 12.5" width. If you go with a 33x10.50, a 15x7 is optimal but certainly no wider than 15x8.
05-05-2013 02:29 PM
tjandlax Something else im going back and forth on. Def 33's just not sure on width, right now im not doing to much stuff offroad where i would need to air down. I bought the jeep end of last june. So this spring and summer is mod time. So im still sitting on the 30's it came with but the steel d windows have been repainted and are now rusting through.
05-05-2013 02:01 PM
Jerry Bransford What size tires will you be mounting on them? Rarely will a 15x10 wheel be the best choice if you offroad & air your tires down.

I'm right there with you. I like these wheels, but I'll have to save pennies before I can get a set.
05-04-2013 06:37 PM
MIZFAN I gave these wheels a hard look for my red 97 but went with the procomp 7069's because of price.

Not real close up, but you get the idea. Great wheels!

jcoon10 I've had the sidebiters (15x10) for about 2 months. I love their look. They stay pretty clean. They r a gloss black but not too shiny. The caps r screwed on and u can access the lugs without removing them. I have Nitto trail grapplers around them.
I can't give u any technical facts about them all I can say is that I love them and they are reasonably priced.
Good luck with ur choice.
If u need better pics let me know and ill take some in the daylight tomorrow.
