That all depends on your gearing and motor. I think I got 18 on 31's and 17 on 33's.

Need Help with Rims and Wheels!

Hey. I just bought a 98 Jeep Wrangler TJ. The guy before me put a body lift on it and is runnng 33s on it. My dad doesnt want me to have 33s just because I am new to driving and such also, they hit the wheel well when I lock the wheel. I also heard that buying wheels for 15 in rims is more expensive because they are less common. Is this true or is it just a myth? I want to run 31' s on it so I was wondering if for moneys sake it would be a good investment to rid the 15s and get something like 17s or if it really makes a difference at all. If it does what wheels/tires would you recommend as a DD and some light trail driving? Ill add a photo so you guys can get an idea of what is on it and the body lift.


Thank you so much.

Adam
