I've just begun looking at rims, currently like the MB 72 but not sure about size or tires.
I will mainly use it for DD, but will do easy to moderate off roading probably once per month.
I live in California, don't have any bad weather to worry about. So if I read correctly, sounds like BFG AT tires would be a good choice? I want a tire that will last long. Prefer not to be noisy, though my hearing sucks anyway...
I have a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited with 17" wheels. Just wondering what will fit with no modifications (not going to lift it, etc). Also, how much should I expect to spend for tires? Looks like the MB 72 runs around $100 each.
What size wheel are you wanting to buy? 15, 16, 17? Without a lift a 32" will bold up no problem. If you want to push the limits you can run a 33" tire but you may need to make some minor modifications to keep them from rubbing.
Im in the same spot you are. I've been researching wheels and tires for a couple weeks now and I've come across the TRXUS STS. I've read good things and they seem like a great all around tire [except for mudding, i've read they are not the best because they don't self clean]
Not sure yet, barely beginning my research. Will all 3 fit on a stock 2012 Wrangler Sport Unlimited? Is there much of a price difference between the sizes?
I'm trying to ball park what my budget will need to be. At this point looks like around $1500 for 5 wheels.
Rims = around $100 each
Tires = around $200 each
Yes, 15, 16 and 17" MB72's will fit the Jk without the use of spacers. Any of the steel options in 15 will require a wheel spacer (est.$100). (16 and 17" steel wheels may or may not require them, these are hit and miss but most require them.)
$1500 is doable for 15 and maybe 16" alloy wheels and tires depending on the combo you choose. 15" wheels are great if you don't think you will ever go larger than a 35" tire in the future. If you think you may want to go larger than a 35" tire than I'd suggest going with a 16" or 17" wheel straight out of the gate. Tire options larger than 35" are not very common for 15" wheels.
Just bought 5 BFG A/T KO's. 31x10.5x15. Mounted, balanced for $1000 on 2004 TJ. Road ride is much better than mud terrains I had. The only problem was the spare bumped up against the 3rd brake light. One inch wheel spacer solved that problem.
