|rbraden1970||I have a 2003 with a 2"BB lift, 1.25" Body Lift, 32" tires and american racing wheels. I went this route so that I didn't have to deal with a transfer case drop or an SYE and drive it every day.|

|gjeppesen||I'm all for buying American. What wheel manufacturer's should I stick with? Any comparable to pro comp 7069?|

|somis||When your buying a tooth brush it doesnt really matter what brand or where its from. But when you're purchasing car parts that you depend on, buy American. 99% of the time American stuff is reliable|

|dmblair||Just had a conversation with a guy today on this subject. We got on the rim/tire subject and he got some pro comps rims less than a year ago. He told me to stay as far away from them as possible. Being here in the salt belt they didn't even last one winter...a mild one at that! The corrosion on them was insane. I couldn't believe it. That really turned me off in a second.|

|gjeppesen||Ok so looks like OME lift, 33" tires, 16" rims, 1" MML, 1" BL, and OME TC drop. Am I forgetting anything?|

|gjeppesen||I'm only looking at PC wheels. A ton of people have them and haven't seen one complaint.|

Not trying to bash anyones stuff, just trying to save people from spending money on Chinese equipment. Many companies are outsourcing these days so its common to come across companies that are actually manufactured in China and assembled here. Shocks, thats no big deal, im sure they work just fine. I have just heard terrible things and have had buddies that purchased the stuff and it failed on them very quickly. BUY NICE OR BUY TWICE.

|BrianJC||Mind if I ask - to enlighten both me and thread owner - what are the issues with Pro Comp and SkyJacker? (I inherited SkyJacker lifted TJ, or at least it has the SJ Hydro 7000 shocks)|
|05-03-2012 05:13 PM|
Pro Comp and SkyJacker is junk stay away from anything from them. I have a Rancho lift (but purchased it in 1997 when it was still the original owners) and have never had any complaints. Ive heard good things about OME and Zone. Bilstein 5100 shocks are a good way to go also.
I have 16" AEV wheels and they work great. Yes they are a little skinnier tire width but it makes it cut through the mud great. Its all preference there.

|Knowledge97||Another thing to consider is the loss of performance you will notice going from stock tires to 33's.|
|05-03-2012 04:51 PM|
In many cases the reason why you are seeing bigger diameter rims on vehicles is because of bigger braking components (drums/calipers) that need the clearance. Personally I wouldn't go to a larger diameter rim unless I had to. Stick with 15"s if you can....but if you like the looks of a bigger rim, thats your call.
|05-03-2012 03:44 PM|
|gjeppesen||Ok why 33's vs. 32's? 16's because seems like things are going that way (bigger).|

|Dextreme||2" OME, 1" Body Lift and 33's would be a great combo IMO. But why the 16" rim consideration? I'd stick with 15" personally...tires are cheaper.|

Need Opinions for Newbie
I have a completely stock 2003 Wrangler. Would like to add a small lift, larger tires, new wheels, etc.
I do a lot of highway driving but want something for non-difficult trails.
Looking at 16" Pro Comp 7069 wheels and Cooper S/T Maxx tires. My dilemma is 32" or 33" tires and what would I have to do and do it right. I was considering OME 2" lift but need opinions.
