I know its beating a dead horse (JKU Tire/Wheel Question)

I want to run 33" Duratacs on my 2007 JKU Sahara.

I think 15" Wheels are what I want.

What size wheel/backspacing/Bolt/offset should I get?

is 15x10 to big?

Then, on tires, what size tire will fit the wheel?

Always had trouble with this, sorry for

You have a few options when it comes to widths and offsets. If you want to run a 15" wheel I would recommend looking into an alloy. Steel wheels will require an additional spacer. Most 15" alloy wheels are 15x8 with a -12 to -19mm offset. Not all of them fit but many do. Here's a thread that may help.

https://www.wranglerforum.com/f27/15-...els-67737.html

15x10 can also work great. The Black Rock D-window alloy is available in a 15x10 -38mm offset.

Shoot us a PM or call us at 1.888.459.4080. if you need more help. We have about 5-6 wheel designs in 15" that fit great on the Jk.

You could go as wide as a 15x11 on a 33x12.50R15 if you could find one with the correct specs. A 15x10 -38 would sit pretty wide.

Damn I love those wheels. What would a set of 5 run me out the door for an 08 JKU ? And would a 1.5 in leveling kit be enough?
