Went with Mickey Thompson Classic III wheels and some Dura-Tracs. Wheels are very similar to the ProComp wheels but these have a glossy finish as compared to the matte finish.
Shop B is very close to correct. The outer edge of 20x9 wheels with 5.0" backspacing will be approx. 2.6" pushed out wider than stock wheels.i am getting so much conflicting information on 20x9 0 offset wheels when compared to my 18x7.5 wheels.
Shop A says they'll be flush
Shop B says they'll be pushed out 2.5"
Shop C says it'll be about 1" out.
Tires that I'm planning are 275/60R20 (33x10.8) or 295/55R20 (32.8x11.6). Backspacing goes from 5.98 from stock to 5" with the wheels I'm looking at.
One picture looks like they push out a good amount, the next looks like they are barely outside the fender well. State inspection fails on anything more than 1", but that said, my inspection is in 5 years.
yeah, i'm looking at wheels with a +18 to +20 offset. I don't have to room to keep 4 tires to be used for 10 minutes every 2 years...so I gotta get something that will pass inspection.Shop B is very close to correct. The outer edge of 20x9 wheels with 5.0" backspacing will be approx. 2.6" pushed out wider than stock wheels.
definitely true with high speed sports cars where excesive braking will generate lots of heat but with Jeep steel rims work just fineIt is important to have aluminum and large openings not with chrome or otherwise because aluminum wastes heat and maintains the efficiency of brakes.
I like the ratio of of wherl/rubber with 17 inch wheels and 35 tires.Advice for an old man please....There may have been information on this earlier, but I thought I would ask again. sorry
I picked up my 2021 Rubicon yesterday and I would like to put on new wheels.
I am NOT going to do a lift kit because I am 70 years old and stock is just fine for me.
But I do like the look of Fuel Beast Wheels and was thinking of getting 18" wheels. I was going to put on the Toyo Open Country A/T tires
I live in Chicago and will use if primarily in the city so dont want too rough of a ride. But I am also taking it often to my fishing cabin in Wisconsin where I have to use some old forest service roads plus cross a couple streams to get to my favorite fishing holes etc.
Can anyone offer friendly tips and suggestions to and old man on my wheel and tire size and type of tires.
