New2012JEEP I think that would look horrible, but you say you don't care. Plus I think you would lose too much tire width and footprint for it to be comfortable to drive. Stock tires are narrow

different tires

so in my recent first post i claimed to have 37" tires on the old hoss, but as some of you probably know it really sucks driving route 70 in colorado with something like that. i am wondering what would happen if i got some basic lightweight wheels with stock size tires for highway driving. would it be dangerous as far as the 4.5" lift making it too top heavy? i feel like my gas mileage would drastically improve, and i rally couldnt care less what it looks like. i'd like to make it to Moab, with my big wheels on a trailer, and do it in 5 tanks of gas instead of 10 (exaggerating, but barely). does anyone else do this, as in maintain a set of highway wheels apart from the playtime wheels? i imagine it to be beneficial, but just worried about any safety issues.

thanks!!
