New wheels and tires!

After several months of searching I finally got new wheels and tires. I went with the american outlaw buckshot 17x9 and 285/70/17 terra grapplers from discount tire. They made me a heck of a deal and one of the wheels had a very small blimish on it so they gave it to me free. Can't say enough about their service.

A few observations after moving up from the 16" factory set up. The power of the jeep seems to be more smooth. Feels like it shifts more appropriately. I have also noticed that at 70 mph rpm is staying under 2500. With the old setup I would be running 2800-2900 at 70. Hope this will keep my mileage from suffering to badly.
