Now I am wavering back and forth on Black vs Argent. I have the Sahara in Natural Green Pearl and always thought I would go with black.....but those Argent ones are making it hard!

I love those tungsten BR Vipers - it'll come down to either these or XD Addicts when the time comes.

Thanks Z! I haven't seen them on many jeeps (which I like). The color matches pretty well with the billet too. They're not cheap, but not too expensive either. Good midrange wheel.

So now I am getting conflicting information from Goodyear dealer. (He did not seem to really know).
I currently have the 255 70 R18 stock JKU Sahara tires. I am looking at AEV Pintler wheels with GY Duratrac 285/70/17 (11.5). No lift.

Is this or is this not an equal or bigger tire than what I have? I'm not going smaller that's for sure...what am I missing here?!

285/70/17 is roughly a 33" tire

Your stock 255/70/18 is roughly a 32" tire

I went with AEV Savegre, Duratrac 33's (285/70/17) and a 2" lift. Couldn't be happier.
