Need suggestions,,,,

I have a 2012 JK, white and likely installing a Mopar or AEV 2.0 lift. I will go with 17 inch rims...not keen about 15's or 16's..just my opinion. This will be a daily driver an not used for off road. What size tire and type would you go with? What about the rims..what type and/or brand? Thanks

Gotta put the work in yourself...nobody can answer this question for you. If they could, we'd all have the same wheels/tires. Kinda like everyone tracing their ancestry back to Adam & Eve, if you believe in that.

Some good tires for road use are the Goodyear DuraTrac, BFG AT's, Kelly Safari TSR (sister to the DuraTrac). Falken, Hankook, Cooper...all make good tires.

For wheels: find something you like. You'll want it in 5x5 bolt pattern (also called 5x127 on some sites) with a backspacing of 4.5" or less.
