Bought new KM2's!! 35x12.50x17. now what?

so i was looking in my local classifieds and found These km2's with 50 miles on them. they were at discount tire and some guy bought them, didnt like the noise and switched them out to all terrains. but now i have to go from at 15 inch wheel to a 17 inch. Where can i find some good deals on wheels? i've googled desert rat 4x4groupbuy, quadratec, 4wd. Anwhere else?

What are advantages/disadvantages from going to 17 from 15? they will balance easier right?

2001 TJ, 4.5" RE, 1" BL, 35" KM2. Black is good.

they are bigger that is about it . Ohh bigger means bigger rocks now and more trails that will damage you hehe. Just get steelies for 50 bucks until you find what you really want!

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

X2 jdhallissey, just pick up some 17x9 steelies and go from there depending on which ones go for $60-$75ea.

The cheapeast 17" Beadlock I've found is Allied Steel for $170 ea.
After that the next cheapest is 17x8 KMC Enduro for $275 ea.

Make sure you get the correct Backspacing/Offset. Otherwise your probably going to rub a little.
