Need advice for 22" rim with 35" tire

Just bought an 08 Sahara today. I'm looking to throw some 22" wheels with 35" inch tires. Any recommendations for such. Also need a lift kit I assume?

Probably the best advice I can give is to just not do it... Jeeps look better IMHO (much, much better) with a smaller wheel and more tire. I'm going to go out on a limb and say most Jeepers feel the same way. Your 35" tire would look much better with say... A 17" or even 18" or 19" wheel than a 22" wheel...

And to answer your question, a slight lift would be advisable. Doesn't need to be huge, especially if you aren't taking it on any kind of trail run. You could get away with a puck lift (or budget boost, whatever you want to call it). You should also consider flat fenders

Yep, I prefer 17's, but I think 35's still look good on 18's, and the tire selection is still pretty good. Big wheel Jeeps are not attractive... Big tire Jeeps are beastly.

You will want something with about 2.5" of lift to run 35's.

Here is a way to do it economically:

Rough Country 2.5" Series II Suspension Spacer Lift Kit without Shocks - RC-634

Now, here is what you should do... Read these:

Prefect lift advice! Thank you! Personally I fell that the bigger wheels look more refined. I don't plan on mudding, trailing, or rock climbing in my jeep. Thanks for your input!
