I am researching new tires/rims and was thinking about trying 33x12.5 17 procomp m/t on procomp series 97 17x9 w 4.5 bs. Has anybody seen or tried this before? Any reason not to? Just thinking of something different...
Oh yeah, the '02 TJ has a 4" lift on it...

Thanks,
Mike

The 17s I've personally seen on Wranglers were with 37" BFG Krawlers. With such a large tire, they looked nicely balanced. 17" wheels with 33s....I guess they'd be okay if you were trying to get that tricked out, bling bling look.

Very bling bling http://www.procomptires.com/series97.htm

they should be okyour tires are gonna look smaller and your gonna lose some sidwall to protect your rim. A more practical combination would be some 15x8's
