Vici There's a new Discount Tire in Broken Arrow (Tulsa) that has good prices. If you're ever up this way you might check them out.

He already has, said he did good on the interstate at 70 mph. It has full width one ton axes under it. The worst thing he has going on that Jeep is, that it only gets about 5mpg due to the V-8 under the hood with enough horse power to do burn outs on those 46's.

20's go on escalades and dump cars like that, not jeeps
Why do you say it can only be driving in bogs?

But the truth of the matter is that when you're at 35" or below tire sizes, really anything from 18" down is fairly typical. 17" and down is especially common. Most JKs come with 32s on 17" wheels, for example.
That's pretty much on the button why. Plus tires are cheaper for 16 than 17's

hagler123 Wish I could find that silver jk 4 door that's ridden around town and blow it up cause it had 22" wheels or bigger with thin tires

Brew OP, time for you to do some Googling and some reading on here. No need to ask a bunch of questions about tire size and lift options for 33s. These questions have literally been asked and answered hundreds of times on here already.
11-28-2012 10:58 PM
PDXJeeper I forbid you you put anything larger than a 17" wheel on your jeep. Even 17" is pushing it with the size tire you want to run. Just playin, do what you want.
11-28-2012 09:23 PM
2006rubicon88 16 is the biggest you should put on it if you intend on actually offroad with the thing. 20 on a jeep are LAME
11-28-2012 03:08 PM
Vici Less rim more rubber. Where in OK are you?
11-27-2012 07:47 AM
gmiller0737 15" Gets My vote shop Craigslist you may find a deal Stock Jeep "Cnyon' wheels are 15x8 and would be fine for 31-32" tires
11-27-2012 07:38 AM
WahooWolfe Tires are much cheaper too for 15" wheels. All other comments have already been made. Stick with 15"..............

Speaking of racing tire on a mini van... Saw that earlier this week wish I had a picture.
Oh, and 16's max.
