I want those wheels...

OK, Here it goes...
I have stock 15" wheels and tires on my 2000 TJ, (TJ is stock for now)
There is a set of rims (BELOW) that I want to get but from what I can tell, they start at 18"
Is this impossible? What would I have to do to get there? Probably a lot!
Can I go up to 17" wheels if not?
Is 17" more common than 18"?

Thanks in advance for possible answers to all of these questions!

17's are stock on a Jk with 32's. So not uncommon. I wouldn't run 17's/18's with a
31".
Would look foolish anyways IMO.
Besides smaller wheels are becoming more popular, price and better off road are
factors to consider.

Nice wheels though .

Right on! Can 33's go on a 15" wheel? My long term goal is a 3" lift. I was thinking 17" with 35's? But I haver a feeling with my limited knowledge that I will have to stay at 15" with 33's on my TJ.
Thanks for the response!

You bet they can. Here is my 33x12.50x15 on a 15x8 wheel



In my opinion the more sidewall the better, but even 18" wheels on 35" tires doesn't look too bad.

Here is an 18x9 wheel on a 35x12.50x18 tore on my brothers truck. Doesn't look bad, but with that big of a wheel you can't air down as much



Not sure of the dimensions on this one, I think 17" beadlocks on 35" tires? Looks sweet though. 33" tires are MUCH more affordable to run though.
