    Default Tires and Rims

    I have a semi technical question I have a set of 33x15x13.5 TSL's on my CJ. They are currently on 15x10 rims, can I mount them on 15x8s or is that a bad idea? My plan was to move them to my JK and put them on 15x8 steel rims.

    Depending on the BS of the wheels, you should be fine.

    You might want to check that again, JK needs at least a 16" rim.
    The 15 will hit the calipers. Just a tought.
