Morning All,

need new tires for the jeep and would like to possibly upgrade to 33's while i'm at it. want to verify that i need to look for rims with the 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern. 92 islander. stock dana 35 rear and dana 30 front.

currently have 31 10.5 15's on it with a 15x8 rim, but have been told that i need to upgrade to a 15x10 rim for the 33 12.5's.

i guess i could always just replace with the 31 10.5's but would at least like to see how much more the 33's would cost.

any advice would be appreciated. thanks in advance.

merry christmas to all!

No need for wider wheels to use a 12.5" tire. 8" wheels are about perfect for a 12.5. You can air down and not worry about loosing a bead....

Depending on the wheels you have currently, you may need spacers or wheels with less backspacing to accommodate a wider tire, tho.

I like me a 10.50 over a 12.50 in a 33" tire... I think they perform much better off-road with basically a stock drive-train and drive a lot straighter down the road at 50mph...
