enjerhoo I'm looking at downsizing my wheels to a 16 or 17. Probably going with Duratracs. I'm not sure on the size yet but I am NOT paying $350 a tire so 18's are out.

One issue I'm seeing is that the 16's are all load range E. Overkill IMHO & too heavy but $265 a tire. So 17's are looking better but the wheels are $30 more each & the tires come in at about $305 so....

decisions decisions.

I'm pretty sure you can, albeit at the risk of tailgate damage. I'm running the stock spare until I get an aftermarket bumper/carrier.

2.5" Rubicon Express suspension lift. LOVE the Duratracs! look way more agressive in person than i imagined. pretty quiet and certainly smooth. for the wheeling i do, including winter weather.. they're great

pics in my jeep profile.. scroll down to "tires and suspension"

HRPinDC If you're planning to go off-road with it, I would go with the smaller wheels. JMHO of course.

No, tires for 18's are vastly more expensive. Stick to 17 or even 16" wheels. If you have a pre 2012, life is going to suck on 3.21 and 35's, just saying.

The weight, cost, loss of power and loss of fuel economy would vastly outweigh the benefits of less than half an inch of extra width (1cm).
