New to this Jeep thing!

Purchased my first Jeep ever. Have wanted one for years now.
2013 jeep wrangler unlimited sahara. (White)
I am looking to upgrade to black wheels and larger tires if possible.
I am wanting know what offset I will need on my wheels to avoid any rubbing on my tires. Also what is the biggest tire I can run without lifting the jeep without rubbing? Please help me out with any information that would be helpful.
Please attach any photos that would be helpful also.

Take a look in the JK part and do a search, tons of info. Here's the basics though as I understand it.

With a stock suspension you can fit 33" tires, but you will either need spacers behind your stock wheels, or wheels with less back spacing.

The back spacing will depend on the size wheel you want. If you stay with 17" or 16" I think 4.5" or so will work, but if you go to a 15" wheel you'll need 3.75. That's just what I think I remember reading, you'll want to double check that before buying anything!

Oh yea, and congrats on the new Jeep. I just got mine a couple weeks ago myself!

Thank you for the info. I want to make sure whatever wheels I use I can use the same ones one i lift the jeep. Probably about a 3inch lift with 35's.
