Wrangler wheels

I have a 2011 4-door sports unlimited and am looking at changing the wheels. I want something rugged looking, flat / matte black, with a negative offset. I'll probably go with 17" for size. Any recommendations?

There has been lots of discussion about this on the JK forum. Here is a link for the thread on Tire Sizes .... You may find interesting and informative.

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

For 17" inch wheels there are a couple manufactures building these...
Pro Comp
Dick Cepek
Rugged Ridge
And others who offer the correct offset and back spacing for your Jeeps.....
There is also a Thread or two on the JK forum about "The COMBO" ,


I suggest you read thru those threads too. They deal with tire / wheel size that fits with out going to Spacers and lift kits..... Have Fun !! "BH"
