Help with Jeep Mods PLZZ!!

hi everyone,

so here is my situation. I have a 2015 Jeep Rubicon Hard Rock Unlimited in black. I know that its probably not recommended but i am in love with the wheels on these two pics. i really need some help in getting my jeep to look like this.

I was able to tell that the wheels are black rhino sidewinders 20x9
with Toyo Country Mud Terrain Tires.

now here are my questions:

1- based on the pic what height lift kit is needed? i love the clearance and don't want it to be any higher than this.
2- regarding the lift kit do i need to get anything specifics like shocks etc...?
3- can anyone tell what the diameter is ? 35? and what brand lift kit you recommend? im looking for the best
4- is there anyway to get a thicker side wall and maintain the 20" wheel with minimal lift?
5 - i've read about something called a -12 offset does this seem like that?

ive tried to go to 4wheel parts for help but they seem to want to shove pro comp down my throat and are not eager to help me once i chose this brand wheel. any suggestions on where i could get this exact set up done on my jeep?
any guidance is appreciated.

Jeeps flex. A lot. Just from the looks of the pictures provided, you'll need a few inches of lift so the tires will clear the wheel wells. Maybe something small like a Teraflex 2.5 inch lift kit (shocks included). Something like that.
It will be difficult to find mud tires with 20 inch wheels.

The picture is from a website butler tire and the center cap has a big B on it. Have you checked their site for the rim?

Sorry, you just bought a JKURHR that costs close to $50,000 and now you want those wheels?

Seriously?

@jeepmonkey1 since your SoCal, I advise you to attend the KMC jeep festival this weekend at Long Beach on Saturday. My jeep is gonna be there at the show and I can help you with all your questions. Also there's a jeep meet in performance plus in Long Beach at the last Friday of the month at 7pm. The shop can give you great deals on your wheels/tires, plus you get to see all the modded rigs to help you on your quest,

Answering your specific question, another approach would be Flat Fendering the Jeep. You will attain the clearance you'll need to avoid body damage.
Just a thought.

That Jeep needs a lift, at least a 2.5

1 - It doesn't look like there is any lift on the Jeep in the picture. That is how you get the look you're after.

2 - If you wanted to put a lift on the Jeep it will ride, handle and generally work better than the one pictured, but the look will be different. You'd want a 2.5" lift or more. With that I would suggest longer shocks

3 - They look like 35's to me.

3b - If you were going to go with a lift, Coil Spring Spacers would be an inexpensive way to go if you don't necessarily want to wheel the Jeep.

4 - You can get more sidewall by going with bigger tires or smaller wheels.

5 - You can ignore offset when talking about Jeep wheels for the most part. We deal mostly in back spacing. You'll want 4.5" of backspacing or so with 35x125.0 tires. That'll keep them from rubbing when you turn lock to lock.

I hope that helps answer some of your questions! I based them on the assumption that what you liked was the low lift and big tires/wheels. That is what gives the Jeep pictured a unique look, but also makes it less functional even for on road driving. A small lift would give you some function back.

Let me know what other questions you have!

-Ryan

Yeah I agree with xtryan, I have 33's with no lift and it looks like this. Surprisingly no rubbing on pavement. Haven't wheeled yet, but I know I'll probably need at least a leveling kit. But it's a tight looking jeep
