ATTN: Anyone who rides 33" w/ 3.21 gears

I have been completely on the fence about upgrading my tires/wheels. I have a 13' 2DR w/ 3.21 gears. I would love to get the combo (33" duratracs & 15" track 8 wheels) but am too worried about overall loss of performance/mpg. I've never heard more mixed opinions about if the combo works with 3.21 so here's my question: Does anyone ride this set up because I would LOVE to drive a 2012+ 3.21 2 door w/ 33" to see how it feels/handles. If any CT jeepers run this set up please let me know, I would love to test your rig out and see for myself before dropping ~$1300 on wheels. Thanks!

Little late but you will be fine with the combo. You're only dealing with a small diameter change. With the right alloy wheel weight is about the sAme as the the stock 32x17

I have heard that you should lean more towards a 17" rim only because there are less and less tires made for 15" rims lately. Just something to look into for when it comes time to get new tires or possibly increase tire size.
