Jeep newbie needs advice with wheels
 
Hi,

I just bought my first jeep, a 2012 Wrangler Sport with stock wheels and tires. I don't do a lot of off road but I'd like it to look a little bit better.

Any advice on wheels/rims that would make it look better without seriously affecting my mileage?

PS: I'm selling the wheels with 200 miles on them. For 400$ they're yours.

Regards,

Guillermo

i like soft 8s my self and what ever flavor 285 70 17 for tire as you like.

Sorry for my ignorance but, is that much bigger that the Sport stock wheels?

i think the stock sport tires are around a 30inch tall tire or maybe a 31 and the 285 70 17s are about a 33in tall tire

Just really what ever look you want. But there are tons of wheels out there. Toyo makes a grea tire five star rated

Any tire you go with other than stock is going to kill your fuel mileage.....To make up for this you can run a cold air induction system and a chip to help you out
