33" duratracs

I wanna get the GY 33" Duratracs plus I'm gonna get the 15" mb 72's from discount tire. I know I can get by without lifting right away which I will do in the next few months. But I wanna be able to at least take it off-road a bit untill I save enough pennies to get a lift. I got a 2011 jk sport currently. Could I off-road a little is my question?
Thanks,
Mike

As long as you don't get into any semi-flexy situations, you should be ok. You will definitely get some contact with your fenders though, even with very mild flex. Definitely don't disco your sway bar!

ESP ran that same setup with a 3/4" Daystar lift and experienced fender rubbing, so you will definitely get that stock.

Jeff is right, you should be fine to do some wheeling in it as long as you don't overdo it. I agree that I would absolutely not disconnect. I run the MB72 33x12.5" Duratrac setup and even with just over 2" of lift, I still get to where I can rub them pretty easily as you can see below..

haha...It looked like your front tire was off the ground a little. Oh well, can't win em all. Amazing how good a muddy Jeep looks.

You can still disco it, just not electronically.

We all learned at some point. Even the big shots who would have you believe they were born into this work with a set of jeep keys in hand.

Nope. Quick disconnects, like JKS or Teraflex make, will make the job easier. But you can still disconnect with the stock gear.

^^^^Agreed. Before I got my JKS Quicker Disconnects for my TJ, I just unbolted the lower swaybar mounts from the diff and zip tied the whole assembly up out of the way while I went offroad. When done, just park on level ground, cut your zip ties, and bolt her back together. It's not as fast as using disconnects, but it's FREE and it does the same job.

Ok what about the mickey thompson sidebiters in 15" instead of the mb's? Could I run those with the 33" duratracs?

Pretty sure the Sidebiter isn't offered in the JK's 5x5 bolt pattern in the 15" diameter. Believe you would have to go up to 17" before they make one to fit the JK.

Grrr thats what I thought. Maybe ill get the mb chaos in 15" instead then. I just dont wanna have exactly what everyone else has. I think it should look just as good on my mango jk.

I'm not a fan of the Chaos wheel personally, but that's the thing about wheels. It is a very personal decision. If you like 'em, go for 'em.

But I know what you mean about not wanting what everyone else has. I had planned on MB72s and Duratracs for white a while. Then it seemed like everyone was getting them, so I took them off my list. Lol. They definitely look great, which is why so many folks go with them. But I just had to be a but different. I have only seen a few folks running the same wheels as me. Love that.

I think I just need to see these wheels in person. Luckily I have both a discount tire and 4wheel parts store both within 10 minutes of my house, 1 of the benefits of living in colorado where everyone drives either a jeep or subaru.
