aug0211 Thanks!


I just created a new thread for my question :-) I do know I can still get 33s in metrics vs standards, but there are some things I'm not as excited about.

Sorry for the thread jack! I've created my own to try to avoid taking this over.

Soon to be first time Jeeper. Ordered a 2014 Unlimited 2 weeks back. Now, I'm on the hunt for tires and wheels.

My dilemma is that I had always planned on DT 33x12.5x15, but I recently decided that I think I like AEV Pintlers the most for wheels. This means a different 33 for the DT (has to fit 17" wheels :-( )

Totally undecided now...

But swamped are 1500+

On the road, definitely not, off road, probably. But nothing serous.

Nashorn101 What width did you get on these? 12.5"? Also, what width wheel did you go with?

I'm wanting 33" Duratracs as well but am trying to decide what wheel width to go with (I'm thinking 8" or 10") and I don't know what backspacing to get on the wheels to fit correctly with a 2" suspension lift and 1" body lift.

Any help? Thanks! :smiley:
