Aftermarket 18's lets see them!!
 
18's are not a very popular choice, but I am torn between them and 20's.

So lets see some aftermarket 18's and provide your tire size please. :thumb:

33's I decided that 18's are perfect. If going 35's and up I would do 20's on mine. Personally I'm going XD Monsters 18" with 295/65r18's. I've flopped on wheel design and tire size a bit, but will be placing order on this setup soon. Wouldn't mind seeing some 20's with 33's for reference (google, here i come).

I will be starting out with 35's. But after comparing prices between the 18's and 20's, the 20's with tires, will run me about $925 more!

I am looking at the 18x10 Moto Metal 962 with -24mm offset. But 20's are NOT out of the question!

Looking at pictures, the 20's seem to fit the full size pickup truck market better. The jeeps look smaller overall and 20's start to look too big for the body and size of it.

Anyone running 325/65/18 tires? I was looking to put that size GoodYear Duratrac's on mine.

How high is your lift? My wife has a JK that I'll be lifting and putting wheels/tires on as soon as her factory tires wear out

panthermark 05-15-2013 06:26 PM

I would do 18's before 20's....just from a $$$ standpoint.

Thats the size of Duratracs that I am running on 18x9 Fuel Rims

JEEPbug 05-16-2013 01:14 AM

Anyone with 295 65r/18 Duratracs? Any rubbing issues on stock height? I have a JKU Sahara with XD addicts but on the stock tires. Looking at these when time for new ones (if its up to me that would be sooner than later).

Always a smart-ass in every group! :nonono:

20's being a mall crawler is YOUR opinion and YOUR opinion does not matter to me WHAT SO EVER. It's MY money and MY Jeep, not yours. If you can't offer any advice, then get off my thread.

That's the look I am going for!! Your Jeep looks sick!! What is the offset on your wheels?

Kssting 05-16-2013 10:43 AM

Thanks. They are 4.5 backspace. With the 2.5 lift they work great.

Those are different but look cool! I haven't seen those on any GC's around me.

eightshb 05-16-2013 02:17 PM

Thanks an expensive option I guess they were on the jeep when I bought it. The tires were Goodyear T/A long trail (Street tire but same size as the Coopers I think dealer went with something that would keep it close to the stock 16" steel wheel and tire. Bought Jeep off the internet last June Brand new with 500 miles on it for $26,000 Sahara Tan

I see some snow in the background there. Do you have any issues with snow getting packed into the little holes or valleys on the wheels?

I live in MI and this past winter, I had to pull over a few times on the way to work because my steering wheels was shaking so bad. I got out to look at my wheels and realized snow had gotten packed in between the spokes on my 7-spoke Sahara wheels and that was causing the shaking. I had to take a screwdriver I had to know the snow out.

What inch lift are you running? I'm looking at 295 65/18 but no lift yet. Those look awesome!

Yeah we get a little snow in Northern Utah. I haven't had any issues with snow or ice building up in the wheels but I have had mud build up enough in the rims to throw off the balance.

You will love how the Duratracs handle in the snow.
