Schmo Yup . . . 15x8 with 3.75 BS would be my vote too if you are running 33x12.5s.

4point 3.75" BS and 8" width gets my vote.

jdhallissey I would run around 4in or 3.5in. I think your going to rub with the 4.5in. I would go down to 15x8 too. I run it now with my 33's. You can air down farther with a narrower rim and not loose the bead.

4Jeepn You could go with a 15x8 rim as well, I ran 33x12.50' with 3.75bs as I recall. Stock BS is about 5.5 as I recall.

I also ran 15x10's w/12.50' and 4.25 to fit it on the but those where on dana 60's.
