banks316 Don't forget about the cost side. 33's for 15in rim will cost less then the same tire for 17in rim. I ran 15in with a set of 37 iroks. To get the same size iroks on my 16.5in rim is almost $200 more per tire.

89YJ4Life Yea your Titan looks sweet lol. Yea I have always liked the beefy look when you go with a smaller rim like on your Jeep but I have found that I am limited to a variety of rims if I choose to stay with a 15'. I am not much of a rock crawler but I find myself going off roading through the mountains quiet a bit over summer and winter. So I think 17' wont be to bad then. Thanks for the reply!!

Rockintheislander It's about what you like and what you're gonna do with it. If its gonna be mainly a driver and only off road on occasion then the 17s would be fine. For rock crawling, not so much. I like the look of lots of sidewall on my jeep. It has 15" wheels and 33's. But my Titan has 18" rims and 32's and they look way better on it than my jeep wheels would.

What size rim???

So I have an 2.5 89 YJ with a 4' RC lift and I am looking into upgrading my tires and rims. I have 31' right now with a 15' rim. I am going to go with some 33' and was planning on going with a 15' rim but I have found some pretty sweet 17' rims. What do you all think? Would I not have enough side wall with a 17' rim? Would it be to much rim? Let me know. Feel free to post pics.
