I have a '17 JKU and am trying to get some new wheels/tires installed. I am being told that a 17" is the minimum size I will need for the wheel to clear the calipers due to being a newer model JK, is this true? Thanks in advance!
The 16's fit just fine with stock components... The issue comes when you start adding aftermarket tie rods, brakes, etc. The 16's do give more sidewall which looks good to me, and tires and wheels are both less expensive.
There are more options in 17's... It's a tradeoff.
