34ís on 20ís

Tried to google and search here but canít find 34ís on 20ís.. I donít take it off road, itís pleasure weekend toy for back roading with the doors off... I like the way a 20 inch rim looks but donít want 35ís to kill the power and mpg. It already gets poor mpgís lol. Read 33ís are great but they look too little on 20ís, so compromise with 34ís if I can find a pic... other wise going with 33ís on 18ís they said 35 will only drop ur mpgs like 1.5 mpg, that sound right? Thanks for the help, rims Iím wanting on fuel vapor with that bronze tint

34's on a 20" wheel will give you VERY LITTLE sidewalls to protect the rims. A simple pothole can damage the wheel. I won't even comment on 20" wheels...

A 20 on a 37"+ does not look bad (and can function). And build it how you like it, other's opinions are not writing the check for you. I will say, you might want to consider the ride being rougher with a 34 on a 20 as opposed to an 18 for example. Just not a lot of rubber.

"Don't want to go to 35's and kill the gas mileage". I could be wrong but can't imagine there would be a noticeable difference between 34's and 35's. The damage is already done....

Especially with a whole bunch of reciprocating wheel.

20s aren't my thing, but it's you're jeep and you admit you don't off-road so do whatever you like. I will say that since you want it to perform on pavement and get not terrible mileage, I would think you could find a pair of 18s you like and be happy with them. Will match the 34inch tire better and thus probably look better too.
