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

JKBrad I found a guy selling brand new 2013 Rubicon wheels and tires. Made my base Sport look a lot better. All 5 wheels and tires, with sensors included were cheaper than a set of new wheels and tires from the local Discount Tire.

Senior Chief Welcome ...
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.

Cheers

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.
That's just what I did. I am using the stock tires, and I just bought the black wheels at Amazon with free shipping. Pro Comp Alloys 7069 Flat Black Wheel (16x8"/5x5") (same wheels at quadratec but cost more and no free shipping)
