Help with 15 inch Series 98 fitment on 2012 Sahara
I just got off the phone with a salesman from 4wd trying to order some new tires and wheels. I told him what tires I wanted ( 33x12.5x15 Duratrac), and before I even mentioned what rim I wanted (Series 98 Rock Crawler 15x10 with 3.75 BS), he was quick to tell me that they will not fit my Sahara or a Rubicon because of the larger calipers. Now, I've read various posts on various sites and it seems that this particular wheel should fit. Tires should not matter, correct? I would just like to hear from someone that has my same vehicle and has the same wheels/tires. I really like the way this combo looks and really don't want to spend much more to have to go to a 16 inch rim. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Discount Tire Direct seems to know what they are doing.

Never argue with an idiot.

My understanding is that MOST 15" wheels will clear the Calipers so long as they have LESS than 4.5" backspacing.

I've also read that steel wheels have LESS clearance than Aluminum. But I cannot confirm.

Lots of variables at play hard to say fo-sho.

Thanks for the quick reply. I really gotta know for sure though if someone has tried these wheels on this exact Jeep. I want a new tire/wheel setup immediately and don't want anything bigger than a 33 inch because it's my dd and don't really off road unless it's trails or mud.
