Wheel Change Suggestions

In the process of ordering some new wheels and was wondering what the largest wheels I can put on it are without lifting/doing anything to it?

I was looking at some 20" with some 305-50-20's

Are these too large for my JK?

Do you have any other size suggestions?

Thanks in advance

It's your Jeep, so do whatever you want. But, for a lot of reasons, it just isn't a good thing to do if you want to retain your JK's off-road capabilities!

Most on here are not fans of the "large" wheel. People on here will tell you to go with a modest 15"-16" wheel as is most optimum for off road. I have the stock 18's and will change these out to either the same size or might drop down to 17's. If 20's is what you want, they will fit but ur gonna cut it close with a large tire. Any wheel shop will tell you the best size tire for 20's so I'd start there.

I currently have 15's on it for off-roading but considering I live in Miami I want to swap them out for the summer for just cruising around.

Thanks for the suggestions
