InfernoGirl Once again, Cavey is spot on. I have 33's and 3:07's with the 3 speed auto.... Most would scream in agony driving it, based on some of the comments here, but I have no problems what so ever... It bogs down going up hill, but I can drive it at 70mph all day long with really no issues, and my steelies are heavier than your alloys will be!

If it's mostly flat land where you'll be driving, you can live with 3.07's for a year until you regear. Highway driving will be effected, so keep that in mind. If you're used to running 32's, then you'll have a decent idea of what running 33's will be like. Good choice on the rims, they seem to be a fairly popular choice for Jeepers. Enjoy!!

InfernoGirl Do like Cavey said. And invest in some Mothers billet polish and a polishing ball... And keep wax on em... You'll thank me someday!

cavediverjc That'll be fine.

Gumpy2030 I thought about running 35's for a while but decided I am not ready to go down that road. I drive it as a DD and offroad occasionaly. I don't have the money to mess with the new axles right now. If I added a body lift I could clear 35's but for my use with this Jeep 33's will be perfect for the time being. I might change my mind once I don't drive this to work everyday.

Looks like these only come with a 3 5/16" backspacing on the 8" rim. Is that going to be ok, or will it make them stick out too far?

Maybe because he's only running a 3.5" suspension lift?

cavediverjc 8" rim, and go with a 3.5" backspacing. DO NOT get a 10" rim. In addition to looking silly, there is a good chance of losing your bead when aired down. Remember, those wheels just LOOK like beadlocks, they aren't true beadlocks, so airing down with 8" rims works a lot better than with 10" rims.

-EDIT- Oh, and running 33's with 3.07 gears isn't going to be much fun, btw.......

Gumpy2030 I did some more reading last night and do plan on going with the 8" rim plus it saves money. What backspacing should I have, 3.73". I have been reading up on that and still haven't figured that one out yet.
06-23-2010 08:05 AM
30-284 I would run with an 8" rim to help keep the tire bead on the rim at low air pressure, unless you never use your jeep in situations where you will need low air pressure then you can use the 10" rim.

Buying new Rims MT Classic Lock

So I am finally getting new rims and am really leaning towards the Mickey Thompson Classic Lock. I really like the look of these. I will be running 33x12.50's on them and am wondering what rim size you guys suggest. 10" or 8"? What backspacing will I need for those tires as well? Here is a link to them with 4x4 group buy.

Mickey Thompson Classic Lock 15x8 5-4.5 Bolt pattern 3 5/16" BS
