New rubber and rims… Hope they fit.

I'll try to mount them tomorrow or on the weekend.

Outlaw II 15x10 because The Tirerack refused to mount them on 8" rims
Duratrac 33 x 12.5 x 15.

I have a 2 1/2" spacer and a 1" body lift….. They should fit right? I know bad time to ask. LOL. Anyway, I prepared to do what I have to do the right way to get them on. I'll probably change the flares, but it's the inside I'm worried about.

I'm not much of a crawler, but I do like to take it through some trails. I wanted to change for a more highway friendly tire. Although it's not a daily driver, when I do take it, it's a 70 mile highway round trip.

What's the backspacing on the rims? If they're 4.5 or less, you'll be fine. More than that, and you risk rubbing...

Good luck!

Yeah, that's what I heard, but looking at them in person they're freakin huge.

3.97" backspace
-.38 mm offset.

I bought my 33x12.5x15 Duratracs and my Dick Cepek DC2 15x8 inch wheels from Tire Rack they came to my house mounted and balanced. I wonder why they wouldn't mount them on a 15x8 Outlaw II. Maybe not the correct amount of backspacing on the 15x8 Outlaws?

A perfect fit!

I'm really happy with the look of the 15 X 10 and the 33 x 12.5 x 10 Duratracs and I'm extremely happy with the ride. With the KM2's at 70 mph it felt like my Jeep was gonna explode. 70 now is comfortable.

Thanks for the help.
