Who has 15" Black wheels for JK.

I noticed that many people run 33" tires on the 17" wheels. Why is that? Isn't the lower rim diameter better for the offroading capabilities?

I used to have 15" black iron wheels on my Tacoma, they were cheep under $200 for all four. Anyone knows where can I find similar wheels for the JK Unlimited Rubi?

Very few 15" wheels will fit on a JK, I think some 16" will, I went for 17's & they fit great with no problems

Yep, what Julie said... Tires are more abundant in 17"s than 16" too....

I see, so the fitment of the 15" wheels is the problem. It is kind of strange, considering that Jeep is designed for off road driving and knowing that 15" wheels superior in the off roading to 16" and 17" wheels.

There is a lot of good 15" information in the thread linked below.

You would be surprised, a lot of 15" alloy wheels that have 4" BS or less clear the JK brakes.

15" MB72 Alloy VS 15x8 Steel..........
