new tires and rims

Hello all,

i own a 95 wrangler, looking into getting some new tires and rims. i figure owned the jeep long enough it's time to have some fun. 1st since it's stock hight goin to get a 4" suspension lift on it.

the rims i was looking into getting are Mamba M2 17's



tires i was looking at are the BF Goodrich All-Terrain



i was told the size i should look into getting are 275 65 17.

i was wondering if this is the correct tire size or if i should look into another size. and if there is something i should worry about and need to look into. i don't want to make a mistake in buyin these

thanks for any help and info

Both may be good products but make sure you buy eveything matching, you have 17" wheels and 15" tires pictures that just won't work.

what kind of Rims are you all running in 15's. i still would like to use the BF goodrich tires but think i will go back to 15's. i see alot of ppl say tire size is 33 12.5 15. i don't know how well this would work on highway. a friend is telling me i'll get way to much tire roll. and thats why i should go w/ bigger rim's

i'm a noob w/ this stuff for me jeep. right now it's my everyday driver so it will get little off-road use, other than in Aug when i go to outterbanks and take it on the beach.

Smaller wheels equals less you pay for tires. 17 inch tires are pretty pricey compared to 15's.

Thats a lot of rim for that size of tire. I wouldn't worry about tire roll, the jeep is no sports car so cornering issues are not a concern. 33" tall tires run very well on the street, thats what I and many others here run.

should i go w/ a 15x8 or 15x10? looks like 15x8 are easier to get since place i called said the 15x10 had to be special ordered. from talking to others tire choice is 33 x 12.5 x 15does that sound correct.

15x8 is your best choice for the 12.50 width. If you wanted bigger rims a 16x8 would also be a good choice if you are running at least 33" tall tires. IMO

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.

i would stick with 15" wheels. i have these all terrains on my black one now, they are 32x11.50r15, so they are 32" tires. they would fit well w/ a 4" lift. they are too small for the 6 to 7 inches on it now.

i'm thinking of selling these, they're about 6 yrs old but have less than 10k on them, and the spare is brand new. let me know if you're interested
