Jeep newbie needs advice with wheels

Hi,

I just bought my first jeep, a 2012 Wrangler Sport with stock wheels and tires. I don't do a lot of off road but I'd like it to look a little bit better.

Any advice on wheels/rims that would make it look better without seriously affecting my mileage?

PS: I'm selling the wheels with 200 miles on them. For 400$ they're yours.

Regards,

Guillermo

i think the stock sport tires are around a 30inch tall tire or maybe a 31 and the 285 70 17s are about a 33in tall tire

Hey there regarding wheels and tires? Check out jcWhitney.com they have some sweet Mambas priced from $117. to $150 six different styles. as for tires there are alot of them that will make you rig look very tuff. Just really what ever look you want. But there are tons of wheels out there. Toyo makes a grea tire five star rated
this is from Treadepot.com, Toyo Open country MT LT depends on size wheels you have and want. Good luck! Bear P.S Quadratec is having there annual tent event Saturday Oct 8th you can get half off tons of items there, even wheels. and 10% off alot of great jeep gear for the Jeep. go check out Quadratec.com.. Peace!

Any tire you go with other than stock is going to kill your fuel mileage.....To make up for this you can run a cold air induction system and a chip to help you out
