What rim/tire size would be best for my 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport?
I just got a Jeep two months ago. I found a job so I can customize it.
Rockstar rims have always been a dream to put on whatever vehicle I got.
All I have now are the stock rims and wheels.
What size looks and operates best for a Jeep?
You must OBEY the door jamb sticker...it says what size tire belongs on that~ there are three reasons why you should not stray from this specified size: 1.) the suspension is engineered around this size any OTHER size would not make it handle on the road like the specified size. 2.) the VSS or speed sensor would not be chalkin' the miles up correctly and not doin' the speed limit will get you in trouble 3.) the insurance company would sure like to know what size tire you had on there AFTER the rollover crash~
disregard the above. obviously you want it to perform differently than stock or you wouldn't have asked. just remember it may handle differently if you put larger tires and wheels on it. you can have the speed sensor adjusted.
On a JK with stock suspension it's all about backspacing. Many, not all, aftermarket wheels with 4.5 inches or less of backspacing can fit up to a 35 inch tire under JK fenders. Personally I feel 33's are a much better choice for reasons like fuel economy, clearance, handling, acceleration, cost, and some others. Your call though.
