Wandell Thanks guys. My daughter helped pic out the wheels (since she gets to drive it also next year). I wanted a black wheel, but she didn't want solid black so we decided on these. In my haste, I didn't realize these BFG's were an E rated tire. I was thinking they were D I was worried about the ride going from the OEM P rated Goodyears. But we set the pressure at 40 psi (what I've always ran in BFG's) and they seemed to ride fine. Last night I dropped the pressure down to 35 psi. What are your thoughts on going lower than 35 psi for daily driving on an E rated tire?

Finally, new wheels and tires installed

Well, my new wheels and tires were finally installed this afternoon. The dealership installed my 2 inch budget boost last Thursday and took the JK to the tire shop for installation of my new 305/65-17 (33x12.50) BFG AT KO's and Eagle Alloy wheels. Well, Eagle screwed up and shipped the wheels with the wrong bolt pattern. They promised to overnight the correct set to us for Friday, but screwed up again and shipped them to the wrong address! Needless to say, I was not happy having a vehicle I've owned less than a week sitting at the tire shop for two days. Anyway, the wheels arrived today and the shop got them installed. The wheels are 17x9 inch Eagle Alloy 197's with 4.5 inches of backspacing. They fit great with no rubbing (on the street anyway). Here are some pics of the JK, the wheels and a couple shots to give people an idea of the stance with a 305mm (12.50 inch) wide tire on a 9 inch wide wheel with 4.5 inches of backspacing.
