|mrbigjeep||get OME shocks coupled with some spacers and it will ride great and give you a 2" lift (depending on spacer)...you don't need beadlocks...and the wheel choice is up to you...if you think your gonna damage them or you'd be real mad if you did then get the steelies...otherwise, alloy and aluminum wheels are nice...i like the eagle alloys, mickey thompsons, and the pro comp wheels.|

Thanks for the answers. I will look at the fine print on my warrenty but can't see tires being a problem. I'll just keep my stock wheels and tires and switch them out when I need to.
Now the next set of questions...
Which wheels are nice? I know wheels when it comes to cars, but I have no idea about 4x4's. I don't feel like spending a lot, especially since there is a better chance of dinging them up.
What is the difference between regular wheels and wheels with beadlocks? Is it important and worth the extra money if I am not doing any hardcore off-roading?
With budget boosts, does it sacrifice ride quality and if so how much? My only concerns if the wife complaining and that this is my daily driver.

|Rawkon||make sure you check your warrenty small print. On my extended warrenty It stated i could not change my tire size X amount of percent from what came from the factory on the jeep. My warrenty was voided for having 31s and i got my money back.|

The goodyears blow. Get BFG All Terrains and you'll love them. You can lift it without voiding your warranty, unless the lift causes the break, and then you have to pay for the fix. So, get a decent lift and you won't have to worry. The offset is up to you. 31's will fit on stock wheels with no rubbing and no lift.
My advice is to wheel it as is and THEN upgrade what you think you NEED to.

31's will fit nicely with no lift
depends on the width of the tire but some run as much as 4.5" Backspacing with no problems.
i run bfg mud terrains and like them

Couple of Newb questions...
Not sure if it is okay to post here or not but I'll go ahead anyways...
(2006 Wrangler X)
1) What size tires can I fit on my jeep without lifting it?
2) Can I lift it without voiding the warrenty (I have a 6yr/60,000 mile, so it will be awhile)?
3) Which offset is ideal when buying new wheels?
4) Best tire for light offroading and minimal road noise? I like the goodyear wranglers that came with it. I don't need a rock crawler tire, just something that will work with the answer to question 1.
I believe that is all for now. Any help would be great?
