Wheel and Tire Suggestions
Just had my TF Leveling Kit installed today, appreciated everyones input on the purchase. Pete at Healey in Beacon is great to work with.
The stock Rubicon Wheels and Tires look a little small for my 2 Door JK.
Wanted some suggestions for wheels and tires from you.
Thinking 33"s with 16" wheels possibly 17" wheels.
Wouldn't mind getting aggressive looking AT's but definitely thinking more MTZ.
Want a wider tire for stance as well, so thinking I'm going to get some 1.5 spidertraxx wheel spacers.
Pictures of your wheels and tires would be appreciated.
Also, forget the spacers. Just another part that can go down for a dirt nap, if not properly maintained. Also an unnecessary expense.
Since you're planning on new wheels and tires, just buy wheels with a smaller backspacing #. If you get wheels with 4.5" bs, you'll clear your lift and your tires will stick out about 1.75" farther than they currently do (given your current tires on stock rims). Go down to 4", and you'll get 2.25". Add fatter tires to that setup and you'll get even more.
The only time you'd need spacers is if you wanted to run bigger tires on your stock rims, and needed to push the wheels out to avoid rub.
One thing to look out for: Most, but not all, 15" alloy wheels will clear your brake calipers. Most of the 15" steelies will not. If in doubt, check with DTD...I think they've got a list.
For a while a popular pair on here was called The Combo: MB72s and GoodYear DuraTracs. I can't say enough good things about the DTs, but ultimately your choice depends on what you want to accomplish with your Jeep.
Be aware that the vast majority of 15" wheels have backspacing of 3.75" or less. This is gonna make your tires stick out a good bit. Some states frown on tires that stick out past the fenders. Just an FYI.
Also, tires that stick out a lot will sling roadcrap all over the side of your rig on days when the pavement's wet. Some peeps don't like that...
Good luck. :thumb:
