looking for guidance on lift kits and tires!

Hey Everyone! Greetings from Virginia! Last November, I used all of the money I had been saving since I was little to buy my beautiful 2010 2-door wrangler sport! After recovering from that purchase I am not ready to start building it! I have done tons of research, now im just looking for tons of opinions!

Firstly, I was considering getting 33" duratracs but after reading some posts from memebers, most have said that they have loved them and then gone ahead and purchased 35s a few weeks later. Being young and not being about to come back like that I was wondering if I should just go for the 35s and if Duratracs are the ones I should get.

Also if I do end up with the 35s, would I have to get a lift kit first? I have heard that JKs need to be lifted 4" to prevent rubbing. If i do need to lift it, what lift kits/brands do you recommend? (links to pages would be awesome!)

Then, I was thinking about these wheels, Black Rock Wheels 997581240 - Black Rock Series 997 Type 8 Steel Wheel in Matte Black for Jeep® Vehicles with 5x4.5 Bolt Pattern - Quadratec
what do y'all think?

Welcome to the Forum

I would start by posting your questions in the JK section of the forum. You will get responses from those that are more familliar with your model. You should also check out the lift "sticky" in the same area for more details about lifts specific to the JK.

The bolt pattern on the JK is 5x5.
I have 5x4.5 on mine, but have 1 3/8" wheel adapters. Which, in my opinion make the wheels stick out too far and I want to get rid of them.
I would look around for a 5x5 BP if I were you.
As for lifts.. I am in the same boat. I'm thinking about the 3 1/4" lift from rough country

Oh yeah! Welcome!
