Talking Check out these racks ;)

Im going to buy tires within the week. Im looking at the Dick Cepek Mud Country and DC Crushers. I really only have these two choices because the only off-road treaded tires they sell are Dick Cepek. I have a '98 4cyl with a 2.5'' suspension lift. My question is will the 33x12.5 fit under my jeep? I currently have 31x10.5 and they rub alittle on full turning. I understand i will lose a lot of power with 33's on a 4cyl but the 31's just arent big enough! And any pics of 2.5'' lift and 33's would help. If the problem is that they will rub while turning, i will look into some 1.5'' wheel spacers off They run $79.99/pair. Any input will help!

I did the 2.25" Skyjacker BBL with Hydro shocks kit, I also replaced front spring isolation pads with .75" pads, this gave a 3" lift in front. Wheels: Dick Cepek DC2 15x8 with 3 5/8" backspacing, Tires: Good Year Duratrac 33x12.50x15. The tires actually measured 32" tall by 11.5" wide. So by having 32x11.50x15s that gives alittle more room than I would have gotten with tires that really are 33x12.50"s. I don't have any rubbing of the control arms or rear spring perches withis wheel/tire set up.
