    Wrong forum but:

    How wide of a tire? For looks I like a wider rim, for bead pressure I like narrower.
    90 YJ. 4link F/R, 16" SAW Airshocks, 32bolt Beadlocks, D60/14bolt, Full Hydro/Hydroboost L67 3.8SC 700r4 NP231/D300
    02 Yukon XL on 37's DD
    91 Cherokee Juggy scrapped for Greener Grass
    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    Theres no way of knowing if its gonna rub or not unless you know what lift he's got, what axles, what offset the rim is etc. etc.

    You can put a 33x12.50x15 tire on a 15x10 rim on that truck with no rubbing with the right setup.

    You need to provide more information if you want an accurate response.

    Oops, sorry next time ill put in the right column.
    As for specs its a 2000 TJ with dana 30 and dana 35 axles. The lift kit sitting on my kitchen floor that will eventually be installed will be a rough country 4 inche.
    Planning on 33x 12.5 x 15 tires.

    Thanx
