Tire and Wheel guys . . .help a noob :)

Hi Guys,

Got a 2016 JKU Willys AT (Billet) on the way. It comes with 3.73 gears and the Rubicon Wheels and rubber.

I'm getting a 2.5" lift and (I know Go Big or Go Home!) likely will opt for 33" tires. This will be a daily driver for me, but I want to be able to have a "one tire" that does it all . . .sound familiar?

I'm thinking about ditching the gloss black rubi wheels and getting some flat black rims but I had also considered keeping the rubi wheels and putting 33" rubber on them . . .not sure about the options. So, what to do?

33-34" rubber . . .

strong durable rims (preferably lighter is better) . . .

Like a tire that will be durable and perform well on road or off (not really a crawler, but more of a trail/overland guy)

What should I be looking at ? I know that most prefer 35" but not me.

What would still keep me looking like a jeep without killing ride and gas mileage?

Thanks in advance!

Tbird

Congrats.
Strong/durable wheels, look into "forged" wheels. For tires, get all terrains.
I'm averaging similar if not better mpg on my 35" KO2's as opposed to the smaller km mt's that my Willys came with. 17-19mpg and 320-350 per tank. 4dr hard top, 6spd, and a tad of added weight.
