Rim sizes

So I have a 07 Jeep Wrangler unlimited Sahara 4x4 and it doesn't have a lift. And I'm looking for new rims for it and I ask the tire shop if I could run 20x12 on it and they said no, is that true

55 pound wheel plus your tire will be easily over 100 lbs.
With proper backspace you can. Not that you should but you can

Just know upfront that heavy wheel/tire combos will make items fail quickly. Ball joints, axle shafts, unit bearings and more. Again, you can do it, just understand the true cost of doing it.

Also:
  • Rear tire holder can't support that much weight (85 pound max)
  • Should upgrade brakes


EDIT: after you posted 33" Toyo MT, their approved rim size is 8.5-11". weight is 71.7 lbs for 126+ pound combo.

Yes.
You'll be ahead in the long run if you research, research, research. Think about total weight of the wheel/tire combo in relationship to the "look" you want, or the type of off-road performance you want. I speculate you're after "look" with a 20" wheel.

There are plenty of 20" that will fit a 33" tire, 4wp shows 192 wheels that are 5x5, 20"x9" HERE

Also I would consider a lighter tire like a Duratrac. Shoot for 85 pounds or less total weight.

Good luck!
