sorry about the quality of the images, but here are 3 of my daughter's '21 sport s: one on factory tires/wheels & the other 2 with the method 309 grid titanium:
If they are at least 8.5 wide I would go with a 275/17's. Watch the offset, you dont them sticking out and I certainly would never use spacers, use the wheel offset. Just my humble opinion.I have it narrowed down to two different wheels and on BFG AT K02's or possibly Duratracs. My Jeep is a 6 speed and is mostly used on the road so I do not want my choice to make it less fun on the road. I also do not plan on lifting the Jeep so I don't want to get a set of wheels and tires and then think it doesn't look right so I need to lift it. My plan is to go with 255/75R17 because it's slightly larger but it doesn't seem like it's enough to make a difference in on-road drivability. I had 33/12.50 and 33/1050's on my TJ and it seemed like it just drove better on the 10.50s.
My two wheel choices are the Motegi MR149 MT6, they weigh 25.85 and are about $7 more per wheel
My next choice is the Motegi MR150 Trailite, 24.6 pounds
My dilemma now is both wheels are 8.5" wide and while it is within the recommended range for the tires I have picked it may be a little wide for those tires.
The wheels are available with 0 and +18 backspacing and I want them to stay even with the flares so I'm planning pon going with +18.
1) I don't plan on doing any off roading that requires much airing down and I know that would be a concern with the wider wheels and 10" wide sites but are there any other concerns?
2) I'm leaning towards the MR150 but which do you think looks better? I can't seem to find any pictures of these on Jeeps but there are tons of them on Taco's in this thread
255/75r17, they are a little over 32" or about 1/2" under the Rubicon tires. I have several sizes And widths on my 4cly TJ and 33/10.50 was the best by far. The skinnier tires seem to be easier to push and even seem to have a traction advantage in almost every situation other than maybe super low p.s.i. I think if I had a Rubicon I'd go with a 255/80r17.What size are those? Did I miss it somewhere. I ask because, I had the big tall and wide tires on my Jeep and I got tired of the rubbing and literally not being able to get to someplace because they rubbed so bad. I really dropped in size and I am much happier. Had it out last weekend, I think it handles a hell of a lot better. I might go down just a touch more. I like your wheels too, but be forewarned of rock knocks. What the hell, its a Jeep what are they for?
