Hi,

Thanks for doing this write up. I was looking at the MB TKO on your website and I only see 15x8 option with no 7" option. Has that been discontinued? Also, it was my understanding that it is not safe or wise to run 235 on anything smaller than 8" wide wheels. I see you guys did a fit of 235 on 7"; so it is okay to do that? Just want to make sure before I decide on 225 or 235 because I can only fit 15×7 without a lift? I'll be doing the PWM as well.

Thanks in advance for all the great work you guys do. I'll certainly be purchasing from you once I decide!
Hi, coop0606-

Yes, unfortunately the 15x7 MB TKO is no longer in production as is the 15x8. This is also the case with the MB Chaos 5.

If you plan on doing the PWM, then you can go a little more aggressive with the fitment, such as 15x7 with -6 offset or even 15x8 with 0 offset. With out a lift though, you'll want to stay conservative on the tire size.

Speaking of tire size, 235/75R-15 is safely run on wheels 6-inches wide to 8-inches wide so this size works great on 7-inch wide applications.

Quick update.
First off, thanks for all your help within this thread!

I ended up going with the Unique 297s 15x7 wheels with 0 offset and 235/75/15 (29, 9.25) Falken Wildpeak AT's.
I did the PWM before getting the tires and its just enough space to clear without rub. No lift.Love them! Thanks again for everything!

Long time since anyone's been here but here goes...if I have a 1.5 inch Lift can I fit 29" tires with the unique or cragar rims (if they're still avail). Also I'm not ablue to pull up the cragar rooms o the discount the site. Any suggestions there? Looking for the best option.

Welcome to the site @Randimlifter!

The 15x7 ET0 Cragar Soft 8 and Unique 297 are both still available however, we only have the Unique listed online. We can order the Soft 8 if you prefer.

15x7 Unique 297 | Discount Tire

A little earlier in this thread a member fit an 8-inch wide wheel with 29" tall tires without having to modify much. With the narrower width on the 15x7 coupled with the 0 offset, you may be able to clear 235/75R-15 tires with minimal modification. Unfortunately this is grey area because much like shoes, tire brands can run bigger or smaller, even in the same size. 225/75R-15 should fit great.

Randimlifter,
You might have to trim the pinch weld to fit that size. I’m running a little bit bigger tire than your planning but have
no lift and with minimal trimming I have no rubbing. (And 1.5in spacers help too)
