I want to upgrade my new rubi x wheels and tires

I was hoping someone could steer me in the right direction.
I will be getting my new rubi x sometime near the end of October says Jeep.
Was wondering how much I should sell my new stuff for or if I should just upgrade after I demolish the stock bFG muds?
Also what are some recommendations for 33" and wheels. I like aluminum for looks and weight but if that is a mistake I would really like to know so i can avoid the possibility of being stuck in the mountains with a broken wheel. I will have the spare at least. Thought's anyone?

sweet ride. tires are very use and need specific, depending on how you are going to use your rubi and in what terrain will dictate your choice. my best picks for tires are the goodyear dura trac or the Interco Trxus MT. two very versatile tires. they work well every where. the Goodyear will last longer then the Trxus MT but the Trxus will out perform all but the Goodyear MTR. you can drive on the highway in relative quite (which you don't have now) from slick roads, ice, snow, rocks, sand they both work very well.
wheels- you will want to use a 17x8 or 9" wide wheel, with a 4.5" backspace.my best choice is the Interco Birddog. to make this short it's a wheel designed to work and some even say it looks good. if looks are more important then function then any wheel will do. good luck and good wheeling

I looked at that wheel and your right. Looks like a great wheel and I want. not thrilled with the design but love the function. May get those interco tires as well M16 33x12.5
