Anybody runnin' a 15x10 wheel on a late model 'zu? Just discovered that I can save about $400 if I go to 15" when I upgrade to 33's (hopefully this summer!)

PS they're 15x10 with 3.75" backspacing

I could go with a 15x8, but I'm not sure if a 33x12.50 will work on an 8" rim

I have 33x12.50 mts on a 15 x10 wheel off my 91 trooper, running 33x10.50 ats now, but use the other when needed. I will dig up some photos later if you like.

So theres nothing bad about a 12.50 on an 8" wheel?

It really is unbelievable how much cheaper 15" tires are over 16"!

Yeah, that's why I still have 15s.

I have 15x8 wheels (3.75" backspace) with 35x12.5x15 tires. I think 8" wheels are better than 10" for off road, the curve of the sidewall flexes better and protects the wheel better. For on-road handling, 10" would be better.



IMO for 33s I would get 33x10.5, and 15x8 wheels.

Thanks for the input guys
I don't think I want a 10.50 tire, I would really rather go with a 12.50
But well see!

Backspacing?
Looks good by the way
Makes the vx look less like an alien and more like a really badass alien :)

The VehiCROSS was always intended to be a limited production vehicle. In fact, Isuzu used (relatively) cheap ceramic molds for the sheet metal, which can only produce a limited number of panels before wearing out.
