2020 Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition
Hello everyone ,
I have been looking around for wheels and have called some places and I am definitely unsure on what wheels I can Install on my Jeep. They cannot give me a definite answer if a certain tire size will rub.
My Jeep is the 2020 unlimited sport Freedom Edition 4cyl. TURBO ( test drove 4 and 6 and this thing hauled ass. I would say engine is louder than 6 if anyone would like to know)
The Jeep has stock 245/75/17s. I would like to know up to what size rim can I put on it and tire. I like 33s but don't want a SMALL rim. I am not lifting the Jeep.
I will attach a picture of my Black Jeep and another of a Silver one with the look that I like.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
TIA

Looks like you're leaving towards 20's. I'm not at all familiar with that, as I'm a 17 guy. Just a heads up, the larger the wheel, the heavier the combo becomes. The shorter sidewall will result in a harsher ride, even with a C-rated tire. If that wheel size pushes you into a D or E-rated tire, it will feel even harsher. Again, just food for thought.

By the way, congratulations on your awesome looking new Jeep and welcome to the community!

Hey.
I def don't want 20s. I would be happy if I can have 18" rims with 33s. That would work for me

If you want 18s I'd look into a 18x9 w/ a 0 offset, here's one example

For tires a 285/65/18 would be ok, anything wider and you'll have to go with a negative offset wheel and you'll get some poke outside the fenders. Here's a link w/ your current size and those 18s w/ that 0 offset
https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?wh...-65-18X9ET0&fcl=2in&wcl=1.25in&scl=2in&sr=0in
17s are a lot cheaper typically w/ better selection of wheels & tires FWIW.

Oh OK, 18 and 33's is definitely a better wheel to tire sidewall ratio for an off road vehicle. Another small heads up, is there are more wheels and available tires in the 17 size, if you run into any hang ups searching the 18's.

Looking forward to seeing your before and after shots.
