Stock Wheels

Just got my 2011 Unlimited Sport with Goodyear Wrangler stock wheels (255/75/17) and would like to get more "agressive" looking AT wheels without sacraficing too much MPG. I am also thinking about installing 1-2" lift. I don't do too much off-roadin but plan to get it dirty once in a while. Any suggestions? And of course I plan to get black rims too

Welcome to WF. The search option is a very useful tool.

Dude, did you just give him the "talk-to-the-hand-go-and-search" answer?? At least toss him an web address for one of your preferred tire or wheel sites!

Seriously though--the question has A LOT of answers. I'd recommend reading the forum for a while, looking at pics of other people's Jeeps, and just generally hanging around for a while. You'll start seeing things you like and things you don't. From there, you'll be able to ask more specific questions.

Just my two cents.

My suggestion is to drive it for a while as it is, before you start thinking about spending hundreds if not thousands on mods to a brand new vehicle.

Put on some miles, look around this forum and others, then decide if you really want to modify anything. If you do decide to mod, you'll have a much better idea of what and how.

And congrats on the new Jeep.

Try the search option at the top of the page for reviews and comparisons of lots of wheel/tires.

I'll second this. Your wallet will be much happier if you wait a bit. The stock Jeep is already great at general off-road environments right off the lot. It would be smart to do some playing around in the dirt first, and over time you may start to see areas that you want to improve, which you can then focus on, rather than throwing money in every direction right away.

Then again, you didn't ask for financial advice. But I still have stock everything (except rocker guards) and can't say anything about aftermarket tires.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Jeepin' First, learn the terminology, it will lead to much greater success in your modding and shopping for mods. Wheels are the metal things that the TIRES go on. Tires are rubber and are what you are asking about. If you go looking for aggressive wheels you are going to have trouble finding what you are looking for. The rims you refer to, would be the wheels.

I put 255/75/17 Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10s on my stock wheels last winter.
They are wearing great after two rotations. Got them cheap at Pep Boys.
