Very valid question, with a wider rim you can mount a wider tire

|Jekyll||Thanks guys I appreciate the tips. Do you know if you have to stick with the 17x8 in rims or can you go up to a 17x9. Or is there a reason for having a 9in vs an 8in? I apologize for my ignorance regarding tire sizing so if anyone has a good link for tire sizing for dummies I would appreciate it.|

I lurked around here for a few months prior to getting my Wrangler Sport. My mods are in my signature.... I tried to use the search function as much as possible and found it priceless.

New Wrangler owner and new wheels
I just purchased my first Jeep Wrangler. I had an old Grand Cherokee that I ran into the ground for 12 years and finally got my dream car. A two door standard drive Wrangler Sport S.
After having it only for a month or so I already have the itch to customize it a little. I am mainly using it to get to places to mountain bike/camp in the mountains or going and driving on the beach so I am not doing any serious off-roading. I do need to navigate some pretty rough stuff in North Georgia but again nothing too crazy. I wanted advice on what wheels and tires to get. I want some black wheels and if I can use the stock tires until they need to be replaced. I am not wed to this idea but it seems like an economical option.
Anyway thanks again for any advice.
