Greetings y'all!

Just picked up my '12 JK 2door and it's beautiful. First mod that came to mind was getting after market wheels with 33x12.5 Duratracs. The only thing I can't figure out is which wheels? I'm looking for 15x8's and am torn between MB72's or Level 8 Trackers. what do you guys think?

Any advice, comments or concerns are appreciated!

MBs are probably the lightest 15x8 available. Not 100% sure on this though.

DTD actually lists the shipping weight for both of those wheels as 20 lbs. So if they are different as all, it isn't much. The one thing to keep in mind is the Tracker has a backspace of 3.32", meaning it will protrude from the fender almost a half inch further than the MB72s, which have 3.75" of backspace.

Personally, I prefer the styling of the Tracker over the MB72. Only reason I haven't already ordered them is because of the above mentioned backspacing. A member here is receiving his Tracker/Duratrac setup and will be posting up some pics. I'm holding off on ordering until then. ;)

ESP, I really like your wheel/tire combo. It gives your jeep a nice squat to it. How do you like the back spacing on the MB's?

4fit, I too am leaning towards the Trackers and the less BS is persuading me. Who is the other member, if you don't mind my asking?

Here is the thread. I also posted a couple pics I found of a JK with the 15" Trackers.

Much thanks 4fit, I'm in the same boat as you. Just waiting for pics so I can pull the trigger.

Happy waiting

Trust me, as soon as I can get the wheels an tires on, I'll post em up. Can't sleep, like a kid at Christmas time.

I have made up my mind that I WILL be ordering my wheels/tires no later than Tuesday! Hoping they will arrive on Friday.:D Of course, I have to decide on a wheel first.:banghead:
