h2oman I have the same color combo and I do like the little bit of silver (instead of all black) on those rims. Those look great on there and is what I am after but I do not want to lift it so I`m afraid to go any bigger than stock on the tires....choices...choices.

Osage Orange Thanks all! I went ahead and ordered the AEV 2" Spacer Suspension System this morning and was cognizant enough this time to ask for my military discount which alleviated some of the shipping cost.

Looks great man! Love the wheels.

As for the lift, all you need is something like the AEV 2" lift or even just a TF leveling kit ($130) to make sure you clear the tires if you wheel hard off-road or want to disco your sway bars.

BobU05 That looks great. I think I'm interested in a setup similar to this.

The product code on my Discount Tire receipt is #62324. Since I'm not a wheel and tire subject matter expert, I consulted their Jeep guru on which rim would work best with that tire size on my JK. He gave me 2 choices; one rim BS/offset that would put my wheels 2 inches outside the fenders or one that would set my wheels flush with the fenders. I chose flush as I'm going for a more conservative build. PM being sent your way..........

4fit Very nice! I know I say it every time someone posts those wheels, but I'll say it again: IMO, those are the best looking wheels on a JK.
