    It should work OK. Wont be much sidewall buldge to protect wheel. Iterco's websight lists for Irok radials that for a 12.50 inch wide tire to use a 8.5-11 inch wheel. for 13.50 wide radials a 10 inch wheel. Im no tire EXPERT but I think it would be OK. Maybe later on he can get some 14-15 inch wide tires. :saweet:

    I think it will work well. Here is my bro's Suburban with 36/13.50-15 Iroks on Eagle 15x12 wheels.

    I just re-read this. I think 15x12's will go well with the Iroks, but not on a Jeep.

    They will mount up and work fine, but the beads will come off easier and the sidewalls will be more prone to being damaged.
