Wheels. . . asking for your opinion.

Which one do you guys like better? Between the two black rims in the center of the picture. If you notice, one is concave the other is convex in the center. They are 17's and I will probably go with either 33's or 35's.

2012 JK Sahara, 2 door, black with the 3 piece hard top.

Thanks.

I concur. The left side look like FWD wheels and may likely need spacers depending on backspacing.

Thanks.
I like the one on the right...is that an ATX wheel?

Anyway, why go with 17's? Tires will cost a fortune in that size. You could buy a set of 15" rims AND tires for about the same $$, or less, than the tires alone for 17" rims.

Just a thought.

Also, if you're trying to decide between 33's and 35's, here's some info that may help you:

With 33's you'll get better mileage. Either one will fit under a 2.5" lift. No need to go higher, and possibly end up having to buy a new driveshaft (necessary at about 3" and up).

If your '12 has a 3.21 or 3.73 gear ratio, it'll have trouble pushing the 35's, to the point that you'll probably wanna regear, eventually (~ $1500). If you plan on regular wheeling with 35's, you should consider getting a sleeve & gusset job on your front axle, so it won't get bent. You'll also need a new spare tire carrier...either a bumper/tire carrier combo, or some kind of stand alone carrier such as the OR-FAB.

Rims/Tires info

Hello Everyone. I am thinking of reversing the springs on my 91 wrangler, and keeping my 15" rims. Question: How high/wide can I go on tires? Jeep is stock, and mostly for off-road riding. Thanks for any suggestions....
