Show me some stock steelies on burlier tires?

I'm looking at used JK's and a number that fit the bill come with the stock steelies wheels. I'm generally inclined to budget for a set of take-offs (Rubi or Willy's) but I'm curious to see how the stock wheels look with some burlier tires (prob not over 33's - don't intend to lift/regear immediately).

These wheels: https://file.kbb.com/kbb/vehicleimag...89_480x360.jpg

I'm kind of late to this thread, but....

My Sport came with black steel wheels. (There were three tire/wheel options for the Sport in '16.. 225/75-14 on silver steelies, 245/75-16 on black steelies and 255/75-17 on the five spoke aluminum wheels).

I replaced the tame stock Bridgestones with a set of 245/75-16 Goodyear Duratracs with a more aggressive tread. The shot below shows how they look. (Since then I've ditched the steelies and installed a set of 17 inch Rubicon take-off wheels with spacers and 285/17-17 Duratracs

at what point should a person change the spare tire carrier? I just plan on running tires like the goodyears above, stock size just beefier tread.

Here it is as it sits today.. I actually wanted a set of 17 inch black steel rims, but I came across the Rubi rims on Craig's List for $200. They had KM2's mounted with about 70% rubber left and they had compatible TPMS sensors. I removed the KM2's and replaced them with Duratracs. I sold the KM2's for 50 bucks, so the total cost for five rims with sensors was $150

Wow that’s a steal. I have been hoping a deal like that falls in my lap for the JK. I bought black Rubi takeoffs for the WJ two years ago but those were just rims for $400.
