Looks great!

My original plan was to replace the OE Sahara wheels with black 17” rims and 33” tires, and black out all the badges.

However, once I got the Jeep I got to appreciate the fine attention-to-detail on the machined Sahara wheels and all the badging. So I embraced the bright work instead —still went ahead and got 33” tires.

No regrets. I was surprised by the outcome and am very happy with the results.

I too have come to appreciate the 5-spoke Sahara wheels. They typically look dopey because they're shod in minivan tires. But as you've shown, all they are missing is some stout all-terrain tires to make them look pretty legit.

What size are those KO2s? If they are the 255/70R18, all I can find are the black letters. I like the raised white letters myself. I ordered a Sahara in hellayella, and its coming with the Bridgestone Dueller AT tires in this size. Would much prefer the BF Goodrich.

They are 275/70R18, which works out to 33.2 inches —vs. 32.1 inches for the stock tires.

Discount Tire had them with the raised white letters in stock.

Thank you, that's going to be my first change. Just to be certain, there are no issues with stock suspension/no lift, and no rubbing?

At least the Dueller's aren't terrible looking, as opposed to some of the other minivan tires that the wrangler comes with. I fully intend to to put BFG KO2's on when these wear out, but the Dueller's are tolerable enough until they are worn.

None.

I got a 3/4-inch Daystar “Comfort Ride” leveling kit, I put it just for looks.

You're right, they aren't bad. That Sahara looks great! I can't wait to get mine! I'll live here vicariously until then.... :D

You're gonna love it! I would have gotten sting grey myself, but this was for my wife, who always wanted a yellow jeep. Now that it's here, I'm so glad she wanted color!

I see you're in Tuscon. A bonus surprise is that the yellow doesn't seem to show our desert dust, it almost always looks clean. The windshield and bumpers look filthy, but I don't even notice dust on the paint. In fact, that picture was from when it just came off the truck without being washed.

I'm now considering painting my house hellayella so I don't have to look at the dust build up.

My 2020 Sahara Altitude with 285/70R18 Nitto Ridge Grapplers with no lift. Doesn’t seem to be a problem.
