|HK_Runner||17s. I chose them because I could get C-rated 35s for them as well as enough room to upgrade brakes.|

|traitor08||I have 17's. Good options on backspacing and still have plenty of sidewall. I would have to thank Jason on my setup. Still need to email him pics.|

Rule of thumb on the JK's is 17" or taller with 4.5"BS or less bs. Anything under that and you could potientally have problems.
PM, email, or call us if you have any questions my friend! We can help set you up with new wheels and your new Duratracs!

I think tires are cheaper for 16, but there may be different tire models or brands between the two.

|estedre||Personally i would pick the wheels i like then go with what sizes they come in. once you decide on a wheel you may find they are only available in a particular size which will narrow your decision.|

So, so far I've been advised to use 15s, 16, 17s, and 18s.
This is why I love the Jeep community...everyone has their own spin on what they prefer. Keeps us all unique.

I love my 15s, but I'd say 16 is a great balance between all the variables.

|Sgt93||18's are perfect with 35's.|

16s would be my preference. Keyword: My.
For 35s, anyway, seems like the perfect balance for weight, price and performance, in terms of how I use my Jeep.

I'm running 325-65Rx18 w/2.5"lift. I keep about 26-28 #pressure. A bit bumpy but not bad.
Great off road @15#

I don't see me going higher than 35s at the moment as this is my daily driver and my only vehicle. After she's paid off and I have another vehicle in the garage anything is possible.
My beloved duratracs don't come in 35x15x12.5 as far as I know thus the reason I'm having to change wheel size.

|brianb||Whetstone, what bumper is that. Could you send me a couple pics of your jeep from the side, im digging those wheels and bumper. Is that a 2.5" lift? Sorry for the side bar...|

Depends on what you want. I have 35s on 18s and really like how it drives. Less sidewall will give you less 'roll' and not feel as squishy on the road, but there are probably some extreme rock crawling situations where you would benefit from having more sidewall.
|05-09-2013 05:26 AM|
16's but if you ever plan on 37's 17's.
I hated 15's with 35's. drove sloppy and my synergy tie rod did not fit
