Will a 33x13.5 fit a 15x8?

I'm gettin new shoes for the whip (aka, new meat on the Jeep)... I like the 33x13.5 interco LTB advertised at natltire.com for $119. People run a 12.5" tire on a 8" rim all the time; would the extra inch make a huge difference? It looks to me like they count that sidewall lug as part of the width, so I doubt it's truly a 13.5" tire near the bead. Any comments or experience with this?

I don't think it will be a problem. The tire will not put quite as big of a footprint on the ground and you will run a little less air to make it sit flat, though.

Yep, they'll fit no problem, especially since the LTB's tend to run a little smaller than other Swampers.
