so i got a 2011 2dr, wrangler rubi....new rims going on next week have it narrowed down to 2 rims just need to choose which one going with the 17" option and they both cost the same price so...

my first choice are these:
Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels

the second are:
KMC XD798 Addict Matte Black Wheels - SummitRacing.com

also if anyone has a shot of there jeep with similar wheels or those specifically some pictures would be apprciated, that aside what rims does the jeep community think better of

I have the MT Classic Lock in polished. I want to replace them with the black though. I have always liked the look of the MT on Jeeps, so I'm kinda partial.

I vote for the XD. Both are nice though. I almost went with the MT Classic II, ended up going with ATX Slot Black.

I like the XD, but pretty sure they don't make a 16 X 8 which is what I needed.

Generally, peeps here choose smaller rims (15-16") w/larger tires, since the smaller rims AND tires often cost less than the tires alone would on 17" rims and larger.

Make sense? Talk about a poorly constructed sentence. Sheesh. :nonono:

Anyway, probably the most popular combo on this forum is 33" DuraTracs on 15" MB72 rims. In fact, I believe it's actually called "the combo."

But what do I know, I'm running 16's. :D

I DO think there are some folks running your rim preferences, though. They'll probably weigh in with some pics, eventually.

In the final analysis, it's your Jeep and you should build it the way you want it.

the main reason i want to stick with the 17 inchers it just the fact that alot of companies arent making tires bigger then 33" for 15 inch rims, im just seeing more possibilities and potential for future mods with the 17" wheels

Xds, the classics are just a spin off of the original aftermarket wheels people have been using for years. The classics are cool but to me seem played out Xds carry more personality
