11 Jeep Wrangler Upgrade Ability
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have a 2011 red wrangler sport 4x4. Its a basic model and im looking to change the wheels out with Eagle Alloy 197 wheels in the super finish (black/chrome). What is the biggest wheel I can go to without putting a liftkit on my jeep and also when im selecting the wheel it asks for which off set i would like either REV or RWD. Wich off set do i pick? Thanks for any of help guys!

The size of the wheel has nothing to do with the lift. The size of the tire does however. 16" or 17" wheels would be ideal. Backspacing again depends upon the tire size, in this case, the width.

So if i got an 17 or 18 inch wheel what tire could i get that would be big but no to big to where i need a lift?

You would need a lift for anything over 33". If you are going wider than stock you should be looking at about 4.5" of back spacing.

Wheel and tire size are unrelated. You can have a 33" tire on a 15" wheel, or a 33" tire on an 18" wheel. Either way, 33" is all that matters from a "how much lift do I need" standpoint.

Thank you for the help.
