New to the Jeep world!!
It’s 2021 Wrangler 80th Anniversary Edition.

Plan to get a set of RTX Zion bronze 17x9,
My question is:
1. Will -15 offset perfect fit with no lift? Or should I go for 0 offset? (Prefer negative offset for the aggressive look)
2. Since wheels are in bronze colour, is it ok to use in winter??
For tires, should I go for 295/70/17 or 305/70/17?? (Again, with no lift)
Thx for any advise!!

Welcome to your new addiction! What is the backspacing on the wheels? It's very important to know that in addition to the -15 offset. Then we can provide advice for question #1.

#2, you're fine, just try to wash off salt as soon as possible.

Regarding tire size, if you do not have a Rubicon, and do not want to lift your Jeep, you should go with 33 inch tires. While you may be able to fit 35s (again, not a Rubicon), but it would be very close to the fenders. If you have a Rubicon, you can easily fit 35s with no lift.

Run flat fenders and you can fit up to 37s no lift or rub.

1. Backspacing is 4.5

For tires, 33 inch was a bit smaller. Maybe I will go for 295 tire since it’s bigger than 33s but smaller than 35s. Am I correct??
Btw, its not a Rubi.

295 tire would be perfect. My KMCs had the same specs as your wheels. They will look great as well. Check out my build thread to see pics. Happy modding!!
