One thing a lot of folks do is ditch the 17's / 18's and buy 15 or 16 inch rims. Tires for those are much less expensive, and there's a far greater selection. In fact, you can usually buy a set of 15's and tires for close to the same cost as buying 17" tires alone.

Just a thought.

Almost all of the 16's will fit. Check on any 15's you like...some of em won't clear the brake calipers. The Discount Tires Direct rep here on the forum can tell you what'll work and what won't. Either way, you want 4.5 backspacking (or less...the smaller the bs #, the more your tires will stick out past the fenders. Most military bases have rules about that, so you might wanna check. If in doubt, get as close to 4.5" bs as you can).

With 15 or 16" rims with 4.5" bs or less, you'll be able to fit most 33" tires under your Jeep w/no rubbing issues. A simple leveling kit or even a 2" BB are just about perfect for a 4-door w/33's.

Good luck, and Semper Fi!
