35x12.5x20 or 37x12.5x20 tires on a wrangler?

Before you guys flame me for thinking about putting 20" rims on a wrangler, note that I don't even own a wrangler I just want to see what it would look like. There are trucks all over my city with huge meaty tires and giant chrome rims and even new wrangler unlimiteds with that whole theme going on, but I haven't seen a regular wrangler with them.

Also, this is probably going to be a stupid question, but how come you never see wranglers with crazy looking after market shocks on them?

You can use this picture as a reference to what I'm talking about, but on a jeep.
(Disclaimer: I don't really like the way this truck looks, I just searched "fox shocks" on google images and it came up)

wranglers TJ are made for offroad use.
these "bling-bling" shocks and big rims don´t offer an advantge.
tht´s why most people use normal shocks and 15" or 16" rims on their TJ.

yeah, leave those resevoir shocks to people running the baja 1000. They are only good for lots of high speed and repeated bumps/jumping. But it sounds like you want that "bling bling", so go for it. all that stuff can be put on the jeep. Its just that most people don't want them because it looks poser (because it is poser)

X2 doesn't help with offroad ability, it may even hurt because you cant air down as much with less sidewall , also personally even if you're going for the "cool" look i think the small wheels make it look better because you have that much more tire and it makes the tires look even bigger

having bigger rims will take up from the sidewalls. If you air down to gain traction, your tire will flex a lot and with bigger rims, it will hit the rim often. so it will have negative impact on offroad performance.



As the shocks go, those things are quite pricey and i know I and many other people here rather spend the money on something else than a pricey set of shocks that dont do much good offroad.
