So my question is... what do y'all think of this idea? I figure I could find some 5x4.5 16" Rubicon rims to fit the bill. Issues with backspacing? Anyone run this? Anyone hate this? Anyone want to start an internet forum fight over it??

Anecdotes welcome...

Edit: I'm going to move this over to the Tires/Wheels forum...

I think it would be a cool unique look! I say go for it...

Btw I'll have my 16'' Rubicon wheels for sell in the next week or so!

That99SaharaGuy I've seen some old Jeep offroadin' footage and those guys had thin tires. I think It's a cool idea... Only thing I'm wonderin' is how you're going to pull that retro look off with a TJ. But who knows, it might be suhweet!

Hendog Now that I think about it, I remember seeing 34x9.50's (or something) and thought that it looked kind cool on a Jeep. But I'm not sure how well it works once the pavement ends.

bink98xcab thats a 1 ton size and have you checked the load rating/ ply# may be really rough riding

Shelby427 Actually when I had my Renegade those style were the thing in deep powder snow.
We used the military lug type. They would plow through snow down to solid ground, whereas the ones that had the big mudders, would try and ride up on the snow.

It would be different from the big mudder style you see so much.

AC0QR Nothings wrong with the standard 31x10.5 or 32x11.5. I think the narrow tires might look cool, to me. Like Shelby said, old school military.

Just wonderin' if anyone has run the 235/85/16 (or 215/85/16) setup, and what they thought. InfernoGirl made a good point that they're all E rated (I found one or two 215s that were D rated) so they're going to be heavy & stiff - but from what I've read on other vehicle boards, ride quality isn't too badly affected.

Shelby427 Wouldn't it look old school military then? Kinda like say WWII Jeep style. 700/16's. ie: Rat Patrol or M.A.S.H.

Hendog I think 9.5's are kinda thin...

What's wrong with 31x10.5's or 32x11.5's?
