I Like the overall build except for the wheels and low profile tires are kind of pimp daddy.
But that's just my humble opinion. It's your rig, and if that's what works in Alabamy, then Roll Tide!!

Wheels

Overall like what you've done with lift and extras, but the wheels aren't my personal style, but I'm not bitching it's your money and if you like it that's what matters. I just personally hate chrome, and know for a fact that set up isn't going to see any rocks/mud, at least not successfully. Nothing wrong with larger rims as long as you have the beef in the tire to offset it. But if it's for the road only I see nothing wrong with that. Enjoy it brother!

I like it. I think the JK looks good on the larger wheels. Most will say they aren't right because they don't function as well as other wheels...but one persons "functional" is always different than another's. Only thing I'd change is the chrome, I'd go with a shiny black powdercoat but like you said...some people don't like black wheels (I'm the opposite). I like chrome on a big red HD truck.

All in all I think it looks sweet! Tint the tails and the windows and it'd set it off.

Definitely a different look! I always say to each their own. I'm just curious, mounting 325's (about 12.75"?) on a 14 wide rim must have been a bear for the shop! I would also be concerned about curbing/damaging the rim.

How's the ride with those?

Thanks and exactly. To each their own. Yes, the tires are 12.8 inches. There is a YouTube video that shows how they mount them. And yes I need to stay away from curbs. The ride is great. Thanks to the RK lift and fox shocks.

I have see hundreds of 12.5 tires on 14 inch rims. Mostly trucks very few Jeeps. Since most jeeps are for off road. You wouldn't want to lower the tire pressure on those tires and try to rock crawl. But I'm staying on the street with plenty of air in them. And again. They are legal for my state. The local police think the Jeep looks awesome. To the everyday person the Jeep looks awesome. Only the people on this forum think it looks stupid. But I live in the real world not on this forum. However, I knew the people here wouldn't like it. Last I looked we still live in a free country. I have the freedom to put whatever I want on my jeep.

How's the ride? With such a small sidewall, I imagine it's pretty rough when you hit a speedbump or pot hole. What's the backspacing?

What do you have planned next?

Cheers for making it your own.

I dont think anyone on the forum was saying it "looks stupid" - just that it wasnt their personal style and most are giving you props for being unique. Just voicing some concerns.

Its been a few years since I was on the car show circuits (lots of previous vehicles of mine - mostly contemporary muscle) but when I was - I saw quite a few very low profile tires mounted on very wide rims. Was very common - just never saw them quite that large and this is the first I've ever seen on a lifted jeep. Again, definitely unique!

Actually the side wall is 6.5 inches. Not as small as it looks in the pictures. The factory tires only had a 7 inch side wall. The off set is -76 mm.

I plan to stop spending money and drive it. However, with that offset the tires hit the front bumper. No big deal, I already had some bumpers picked out. The Aries bumpers are going on next. The bumpers should arrive today. A M8000-s Warn winch is on the way too. Later I may get rear tail LED lights. Front LED lights. Maybe a Superchip Trail dash, if I trust it. Which I don't right now. It's a toy. A big boy's toy. But at some point I'll be broke. It's one of a kind and I like it. Thanks

Actually a few people did say it looked stupid. Their posts were deleted.

And exactly. I wanted something people have never seen. I went for it and did it myself. I installed everything on the jeep but the gears.

Thanks to the people that gives me props for being unique. That's what makes us all different.

This is the greatest thing about a Jeep. It's yours to do as you please. Whether it crawls the malls or the rocks. If they all looked the same, it would be just another vehicle.

I know ya have a few years, but may want to keep a couple of the factory tires around. Not sure in Alabama but in Colorado, they wont do an emissions test if the tares are larger than 34"

Good luck with your build!

wowza! That last pic made me do a double take! I think it's awesome that you are doing what YOU want to do and not what others think should be done. Good luck with your continued build

As long as you show an insurance card, you're good here
We don't have any kind of vehicle tests.

Just out of curiosity, what's the purpose of the winch on your jeep?
