WOW! took my 13 Rubicon thru Benbow jeep trail in Montana. It did awesome, but I want more!

Not looking for looks want to go Cheap.(only in it for fun don't need 20")

I know I need a lift and 4.5 offset.

Well, first off congrats on the new Jeep and welcome to the Forum! It seems like you've done a little research one the form already which is good. What kind of wheeling are you planning on doing with the Jeep?

Unless you plan on airing down to 10 or less PSI for some serious rock crawling beadlocks might be more than you need. A lot of beadlock wheels are heavy and will rob you of power and gas mileage.

The most popular sizes for the JK are either a 16" or 17" wheel. Obviously you'll need to get the right bolt pattern for the Jeep. (5x5) You also want to be mindful of the backspacing of the wheel. For a 12.5" wide tire, a backspacing of 4.5" or less should be enough to avoid rubbing at full steering lock.

We offer a full line of Wheels for your Jeep. Do some looking around on our wheels page and let me know what you think. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll be happy to help.

-Zach

I went 35" Toyo MTs on Hutchinson Rock Monster wheels. Both are awesome and it's for my '13 10th Ann Rubicon. Best of luck.
