Opinion on wheels

Hey all im new to this forum and new to the jeep world i just got myself a 2012 wrangler sport. Not really looking to do off roading but i am looking to get new wheels but also keep my stock tires which are 255/75-17 i would really like to put black wheels on it but i havent found any that fit those tires i dont no to much about wheels so if anyone knows about wheels that would fit my tires i would greatly appreciate it.

5x5 bolt patern. since your sticking with your stock tires off the stock 17 in rim you will want 17x9's. and look for a rim in the 3.75-4.5 back spacing range as so when you go to a wider tire then stock you will not rub when turning. 4.5 is pretty much ideal I think but any rim with that bs range will work great

I've had my Jeep for a little over a month, and I have been agonizing over wheel choice since the first day...it's brutal. Thought I had one picked out, only to find out that the smallest size it comes in is 18", which I don't really want.

There are not nearly as many wheel choices for Jeeps/trucks as there are for cars, which makes it harder.

Good luck!

4WD.com has a good selection. If you like the style of the rims on your Jeep, Moab makes the style in black.
