Hello all! I'm looking at getting a set of wheels(17") and tires(32"-33") for now, and when I have the money jump up to 35s or 37s. So my question is what would make a great combo now, so that later all I have to do is buy some new rubber? Current setup is stock everything, wheels are 17" with 225/75R17 on them. It's on a 2013 2 door JK.
I know with bigger tire I'll need to lift a little to be able to flex, any recommendations?

I see some people running 16" and 15" wheels on a JK is that better or is it just to save on tire cost?

Any help is appreciated.

Helps with cost and helps with airing down.

Thanks guys, I will eventually go to 37s that's why I wanted to start with 17" wheels.

Will there be any issue with rubbing at 17" and 32" combo?

2.5 lift with 35/12.50r17 with 4.5 back spacing should be just fine...
