33" tire recommendations for a 15" wheel?

Like my old VW Beetle (not that new abomination) with the 4" wide bias-ply tires that was a tank in snow. That car was the Subaru of it's day.
Still goiing 33x12.5 on the TJ this time since it's not my DD.
 
BFG K02 33x10.5x15 maybe the way to go. Still tempted to get the cooper STT pro. that tires just looks good, but I am being discovered by it being loud on the street. Plus i wont be going offroad.
The falken AT3 was my second option but again mud tire and not 33x10.5x15.

Is anybody running 33x10.5x15 or 12.5x15 with factory flares? Please share a pic. want to see how much they stick out.
The, "AT," in AT3 stands for, "all terrain." It is not a mud terrain tire. Its very friendly on road even in the rain.
235’s are what I am running on my 1995 Jeep YJ, no issues.

Any review on the evolutions thay sure r priced good..


So far so good.. They do have some road noise, but did well in the mud keeping the lugs clear. No show or ice here, so I'm not sure about that, although they do have the factory holes for snow spikes. (I believe that's what they're called).

Looks like the price is up a few dollars each. $167 for the 33" and $137 for the 31". Free shipping and no taxes helps though..

Thanks for the review, Walmart has the 33s for $131 and 35s for $153 just have to decide which size to go with probably the 33s because don't want the extra lift from 35s

Wow that's great! I looked at Walmart at the time and they didn't have them yet. The $16 per tire mount with the insurance is a decent deal too.
 
my tj is not a daily driver but if you go off road and have to tackle mud a a/t will not do you need a mud tire a a/t will not do in mud. Thought I would get by with a a/t but not going to happen in tn guess I will just take the loss and trade up to a mt
 
Tell me about it brutha, I must have looked at a 1000 wheels before finally narrowing it down to just a couple.
Same here. With so many choices of wheels and tires and then trying to find a place that sold both that you like for a good price, it was a headache. lol

I finally ended up finding them at Discount Tire which were about $60 cheaper per wheel and $20 cheaper per tire than everyone else. Plus they had an additional $50 rebate with free mounting, balancing and shipping. I couldn't pass up the deal.

ok so I have question if I’m running 32x11.5 r15 falken wildpeaks a/t should i be able to put 33’s on instead? I am in need of tires but thinking I want to go to 33’s. How much of a difference will it be?

Um, half an inch and half an inch.
My kid should be home in a minute, I can measure his Wildpeak AT's, I don't think they're quite 33"...Wait, his spare is here and it's new. Give me a minute.
Okay, they're just a tad over 32" and tread width is 10", sidewall 12.5" (y)
