The look pretty deep. Might want to find out the backspacing on them.

Yeah, they were listed as 15x10, so they are real wide. I like 8 in wide better, but I think 33x12.5 fit 10s. I'll check the backspace too.....

When I first bought my cj-8 it had 15X10s with 32x11.5 on it and they ran fine. The backspacing was appropriate for it though. The general rule of thumb is that you can go up to 4 inches wider on your tire than rim so yeah 12.5 inch tires on an 8 inch rim would be pushing it.

I'm actually looking at 285/75/16 for my current 8" wide wheels (are 33.1 tall) or if I buy wheeels like this I could do 33x12.5x15. The tires are a little less on the 15s. Also thought of painting my steelies Grey or bronze.....kinda like the dirty color in this pic

Agree with you there. Could just be the photo angle but it looks like a lot of offset for 10" rim (at least for a CJ).
