They have small ash trays. When the ash tray gets full I simply trade it in.

Someone needs to do some research

OP I'm begging you, please read through this forum in its entirety before making that kind of decision. Your making all these plans and it sounds like a. You've never owned a jeep before b. you have no idea what 37" tires means for the test of the vehicle and c. You know you want a jeep right? And not a hummer?

Nevermind the fact it would be a bit strange to put such large rims on a jeep, the issue at hand is i hear mud terrain tires do not fare well in the snow, so if anything search for all terrain tires. Also, seeing as apparently youve never owned a jeep before, to go to such a large size wheel is not an easy tasks and takes a lot of time, gutting the rig, and MONEY to do. The tires that come stock on all wranglers will do excellent in snow if you do buy a jeep. As a survivor of new york winters i can vouch for that.

Slightly different approach....I live about 2 hours from CHI town.....and my old TJ stock has never been stuck in the snow,,,it is no longer STOCK!!

My wife has a '12 JK on STOCK wheels and tires...and she has never been stuck here in the Fort we have taken it to MI just to "Play in the SNOW" and never got it stuck!!!

All that being said anything is possible it depends on the Driver and their level of skill!!

Chicago is where I was born and raised. My first job was driving a garbage truck in the city and when the rest of the city shut down because of snow, I was still moving, mostly. Even with the huge tires and additional weight of my truck, I managed to get it stuck, so it is possible for a Jeep outfitted the way you wish to get stuck in the snow. Any vehicle can get stuck in the snow if things go wrong, BUT you're less likely to get stuck than if you drove a Prius or some other weeny car.

Let's be nice....

OP,
1. Any vehicle can get stuck
2. It does not snow THAT much in Chicago
3. The wheels you are describing would not be a good set up for a Wrangler

What's wrong with 37 mud grapplers and why wouldn't it be a good setup

Or are you saying that based on the wheel and not the tire and who cares what wheels he is going to use

The reason you are not getting the exact answer to your question is because it is not a common setup you are asking about. You can get stuck in the snow with just about any set up. With such large wheels and tires you start running into a lot of other issues besides snow. But with enough research and money you could go with what you described.

So what you are saying is 37's on 17's mud grapplers is better then 37's on 22's mud grapplers in the snow

I like big wheels, but would not go over 20's on a Jeep, but that is just my opinion. I live in MI and my stock Sahara has not gotten stuck yet in over 2 years in the snow with the stock wheel/tire combo.

Here is a link with some pics of 20's.

OP your question should have been does mud grapplers work well in the snow , your wheel size has nothing to do with it in snow in the city

But since you put wheel size nobody is paying attention to your question , they just want to make fun about the wheel size

You can't just throw 37" tires on a JK without doing modifications to the suspension and/or fenders, regardless of wheel size.

35" is typically the largest tire that jeepers will use unless it is on a seriously modded dedicated off road rig.

No. Mud tires aren't good in the snow/ice no matter what size rim.

What I was getting at is you will need to make a lot of upgrades to run that set up. Quality lift, gears, ect. But I was also saying it can be done if you really desire it.

If you read beyond the title of the thread, the op is talking about a Jeep he hasn't purchased yet. Having to mod the Jeep to fit 37's is something he should be warned about. Moose5 already covered mud tires not working well in snow.

However, I am assuming the Sahara is not already set up with 37's and this is something he wants to add.

As others have mentioned, it goes beyond looking at the size of the rim.

Nitto's are heavy
22's are heavy
The weather in Chicago isn't really "need mud tires for winter" type weather.

Plus 37's bring in their own issues.

You are talking about things like sleeves and gussets, a possible re-gear, lifts, flares....ect.

Being that the OP didn't mention going off-road, this sounds like street Sahara (just my guess)....so I would not recommend 37" Nitto mudders on 22" XD's to just drive around on in Chicago.
