Mickey Thompson Classic II on TJ question
I'm looking to put some black 15" wheels on and really like the looks of the Mickey Thompson Classic II in black. My only hesitation is the backspace. It has 3 5/16" BS so 3.3125" of BS. I'm wondering if this is too little BS and will push the tire to far? I plan to put 33-12.5-15 GY Duratracs on these wheels. Will having them pushed out this amount have any adverse effects on my trans, etc. I dont mind the looks because I will be putting Bushwacker flat fenders on eventually. The Jeep is a 2004 Rubicon 5 speed manual with stock gears.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Nah, it's ok... Most of us us 4" bs, but there are tons of folks out there with less... Tons with exactly those wheels... :) Less bs does stress things more than stock, but I think that the 9/16's of an inch is not really gonna make a difference.... :)

Hi all, my first post. I'm trying to find these wheels but they are either out of stock or it shows a picture of the Mickeys with the HUGE holes in the wheel. I had the chrome Classic II before a jeep total. Now rebuilding a new one and want these. Which one of the black ones are currently available ?
