Tire/rim size suggestion

I have 31inch tires in my jeep right now, but i want to switch to a new rim...im thinking if i run the same tires but with. 20 or 28 inch rim...what would work better?

What year is your Jeep?

Regardless, the suggested rim size if you want to do off roading is usually 15" - 17".

If it's only going to be used on paved roads, you could go with whatever size you want. I don't think many on here have gone beyond 18" unless they're running 35" tires or larger.

I saw a Jeep with 22s. It looked so stupid. If you want it to still look like a Jeep, keep smaller wheels. Why do you want bigger wheels, anyway?

I agree. Jeeps look best with small rims, large tires.

15-16" rims with proper tires (i.e. not low-profile ghetto-style shit) will be best.
