Wheels, tires, and lift

14 JKUR should arrive in a week or so. Interested in MOTO METAL Series 909 SKULL wheels, 17x9, with Nitto Trail Grappler M/T, 35x12.5x17 with a 2.5 BB lift. New to the JK world and plan on minimum off roading, unless I get hooked.

Any feedback on my planned set up?

My advice is to go cheaper on wheels since u plan wheeling. Nothing too flashy, no chrome, and easy to clean. Your wheels will get a scratch here and there if u plan on wheeling. Other than that, ur tires are great, but on the hefty side (expect a big hit on mpg). Good luck.

I just got my '14 Sport and ordered 20" Rockstar II's and Toyo MT's and a 2.5" AEV lift. Hoping it'll look good. Lots out there to pick from. I'm glad the Rockstars are solid black now.

Thanks. The wife just approved the additional funding, so need to strike while the iron is hot.
