Anyone running aftermarket 16 inch rims on your JK?

Not a big fan of the 17 inch factory rims and I really dislike the 18's on the Sahara. I am gonna run 35's on 16x9. Is anyone else running this set up and if so your thoughts/pics. Thanks.

I've got no use for 35" tires !!

I run big 33" tires on ProComp 8089's wheels, that are 16x8" and also have the same in 17x8", about 26 lbs

The lift is the RC 2.5" (steel) spacers !!

I'm very satisfied withem, no TPMS xmitters and I've used the AEV Procal module to set my TPMS "alarm" point at "0", so I don't have any chimes (ever) of dash icon !!

I much prefer the look of a 16" rim over the 17's or 18's. Very nice! I imagine most people are running with 17's though.
