New wheels and tires on my wifes TJ

Just got these wheels and tires for her for Christmas and finally had an off day to slap them on.. Let me know what ya think! Dick Cepek dc1's got the grabber at2s on them and a 11/2 inch spacers to set it out a little! Next stop.... A little lift kit to get it a bit taller! Not too much, she wants the stubby look! I'm lovin the jeep bug! Thumbs!

The wheel spacers that make the wheels stick out an unnecessary amount seem...unnecessary. The tires-sticking-out look looks ghetto and juvenile.

It looks nice now, but with a small lift it will look even better! Nice Jeep.

Everyone asks that; I dont have another set to put on her, and I cant go below a 35" tire. Im kinda stuck with them. I just bought a spare matching wheel (new) and a brand new Terra Grappler 35" to the tune of $500 :P

I've never been a fan of the big wheel look on Jeeps.. but yours doesn't look bad. Put some big rubber and a good lift on it and it will look real sharp.

Are wheel spacers a good idea? i am have a awful time trying to decide either to buy 15X8 ar23 wheels or buy a set of wheel spacers. My jeep machanice says not to buy them, but I need something so the tire stops rubbing. The wheel I have is a centerline 15. but there is 6" on the backspacing. the tire size I have is 31x10.5 bfg ta/ko. should I buy the new wheel or try a spacer?

New Wheels. New Wheels.. New Wheels...


Make sure you get them with 3.75 - 4.25in back spacing..

I got them and love them! No rub, nice ride and a wider stance! Looks great! You might want to go with a 1 inch spacer, but I have the 11\2 inch spacer and don't regret it at all! best money I have spent yet besides the dick cepek dc1's
