I just swapped the 2012 Sahara factory 18" wheels and Bridgestones for 285 70 17 Goodyear Duratracs on AEV Pintlers. Also added a 1-inch aluminum leveling kit in the front from Ready-Lift which flattened her out without lifting. Did not need spacers due to the Pintlers' backspacing. Love the results. The tires and wheels look great. There's a little bit of a hum from the tires at 60 mph and above, which is not obnoxious at all. And there's no rubbing at full turn either way. I looked at several tire brands, and I'm really happy with the Duratracs.

They're in my camera, and in my photobucket account, but I have no effing idea how to move them to the WF. I think it has something to do with knocking down the size before importing them to the WF. Very frustrating! Is there an optimum size for transferring them? I'll work on that this week!

Any pics folks?

I am in the same boat here. I dont want to raise it but I want it to look aggressive. I think I want the Duratracs but I want as tall as I can go and I want them pretty wide. I too have a 2010 Unlimited Sahara. Factory wheels are 18" but Im willing to swap over to whatever set it up higher, makes it look mean, but doesn't require a lift. If you fit into this category can you post some pics please?

Ahhh, the rolling construction sign. Lol. I saw that color at the dealer and just can't picture driving something that bright every day. Looks good though.
