I paid about $184 for each 17" wheel (about $1,000 with shipping)
and about $320 for each 35" Duratac (about $1,600 mounted and balanced)
I purchased my Teraflex 2.5" lift with shocks off Quadratec for about $750 shipped.

I walked into the shop with my wheels and lift. They charged me about $300 for the lift install and the above stated $1,600 for the tires. Total, it cost me about $3,100 for everything.

You can find wheels and tires both cheaper and more expensive. Depends on the look you're going for. I think Quadratec is having a few wheel+tire package sales right now.

Best bet is to call some tire shops around you and just tell them "Hey, I found this tire online for this price, can you beat it?" or "This place told me this much, can you beat it?" Don't feel bad trying to get the cheapest price, most shops charge too much for this stuff anyway!

I don't know much about Jeeps, or cars in general, and I don't want to get ripped off. I tried looking on Ebay and Amazon and they seem to be cheaper, but it doesn't include the lift which is needed, or the installation. I would appreciate every serious answer this could get!
You should be very thankful you found this forum before you wasted that much money and ended up with the ugliest Jeep on earth. Never go back to that wheel shop for any reason. You need to use the search on this forum to look at some wheels and tires.

So you should be okay with larger tires and your gas mileage may only take a small hit. Also, is this a daily driver or a weekend vehicle?
^This...
The only exception to the above post is that you will probably need a re-gear anyway on a pre 2012 if you are even thinking about 35's.

Total ripoff. Don't waste your money, especially on 20s. Do yourself a favor and PM discount tire, and ask for the combo. 33" Duratracs on 15" wheels. Your rig will look great, perform well, and it will cost you (with rebates and such) around $1600 for 5 wheels/tires/tpms, mounted, balanced, licked clean, and shipped to your door.

Your end result will look similar to this...



P.S. I like 20" wheels on a Wrangler....so long as the tire is AT LEAST 40".

peanut09 I wouldn't get 20's with 35's unless you really just like the look of that large rim and a little harsher ride. with that small of a tire its a lot of rim for an offroad vehicle so if you wheel it expect that the rims will get beat up.

Where did you get this package from?

Baldmtn Mine is not a daily driver, just for fun in the woods with the family- our new hobby. Ride was not a factor, however I will say so far we were impressed. I think the ride has a lot to do with what lift and shocks you get.
03-17-2013 12:18 PM
markwoodlief you are going to hate the ride with 20" rims.. not enough tire to absorb some of the shock of bumps, etc. It'll look ok, sitting in the driveway. I found out the hard way by putting 24's on my escalade ext years ago.. looked ok for a few weeks, then the rough ride got to me.
03-17-2013 11:52 AM
Baldmtn I guess it depends on your budget and how much money you can spend. Sounds like you have some limitations on money. If that is so, then everyone above is spot on. I love my 20's but specifically got them because everyone was doing 18's around here. The dealership here has a local guy putting 3 in lifts and 18 in matte black wheels of various styles on stock jeeps and marking them up $10,000 and they are selling. With all that said - nothing worse then spending your hard earned money and seeing 5 just like it. Don't follow the pack.....

DJL2 I'll throw this out there: if someone recommended 20 inch wheel for 35 inch tires they "saw you coming."

There are only two reasons to do this:

1.) you LOVE the looks of a 20" wheel - good for you, shop around.

2.) they LOVE the idea of how much more money they are going to make selling you a 400 dollar wheel and 400 dollar tires.

Honestly, 4000 bucks is 800 per wheel/tire. You can get a decent, name brand 17 inch wheel for 200 bucks - even if you spent the same on tires that would still net you a savings of 1000 dollars. Think about that. More over, your tires and wheels would be lighter and your tires less expensive. That'll save you money every time you buy new tires or fill your gas tank. The extra 1.5" of sidewall might even help you out off road.

Just things to think about...

MistiC NiNja sounds like they probably had the wheels/tires in stock which is why they suggested it. Did you go in there wanting 20 inch rims? Like the others have said very big and expensive. Tires are progressively cheaper the smaller the rim diameter, so if bling bling 20's aren't a deal breaker, you should check out 16's or 17's. Go with AT's if you are mostly staying on the pavement and read up on the forums.

I just picked up some wheels from Discount Tires and got a pretty great deal, weren't any promotions going on but the manager knocked $300 off the price and I still got the manufacture rebates and car care one credit card rebate.

Do some research and then feel free to ask about opinions on a wheel / tire combo. Forum will be able to provide you with a lot more direction.

$4K for wheels and tires sounds crazy for some rockstars.

What these guys said. Do yourself a huge favor and don't buy wheels larger than 17". You will save yourself serious money long term in replacing tires. 15" or 16" is better. Next, get the best price you can find online, mounted, balanced, and shipped. Then call Discount Tire Direct. They will match any other online price. I don't know about wrangler forum, but if you are on JK Forum you will also get a $50 instant credit/rebate. You can put them on yourself. It's generally the best deal out there.

Pay heed to the folks above.

Binx Dont do either. 20's and rockstars...lol Sorry, both of them look horrible, especially together. Thats like putting 20 inch chrome on a civic. Your gonna pay out the ass for rims and tires at that size . The smaller the tire and wheel the smaller the price. Like above what are you using the vehicle for. Thats the best way to decide what to run.

kjeeper10 This^

Spend some time here on the forum. Willing to bet your plans will change
2.5 is enough for 35's. doesn't matter how you do it. Budget boost or a coil lift will work.
We have venders that give discounts to members. Check Discount Tire for tire and wheel pricing. Smaller wheels cost/weigh less and tires do as well.
You can lift and add tires and wheels for that amount of $$$
As mentioned you may want to regear the differentials as well. A pre 12 auto with higher gearing is going to have a hard time moving those tires.
Research research research
