Hello all. First thanks to the community for all of the info that is posted here. I spent weeks researching what would be the best wheel and tire setup for my 2013 JKU Dune and the info here was invaluable.
Dune seems to be a pretty polarizing color, you either hate it or love it. I was kind of "meh" when I first saw it, but I started envisioning what it would look like with black wheels and accents. I know this is all personal preference, but I also feel for Dune to work you need color matched fenders and top. I really feel the black wheels pull it all together. I absolutely love it now.
Anyway in my search for wheels I identified what was important to me..which was..
- wheel and tire assembly close to stock weight
- worked with stock suspension
- did not stick out too far past the fenders
- aggressive look
I settled on
ProComp 7069's 17X9 -6 offset
Toyo Open Country AT2's in 285/70/17 in P not LT (I specifically did not want E rated tires...I just don't see the need for such high load rated tires on jeep)
The stock 18" Sahara wheel and tire combo was 68.8lbs according to my scale (which makes sense considering they rate the spare tire carrier for 69lbs)
My new setup was 69.8lbs. I was very happy with that.
After install the TPMS sensors synch'd right up within 2 minutes.
So without further ado...
