My top three choices are in no particular order, @Discount Tire , @Northridge4x4 and @Quadratec. My most recent experience was with Discount Tire and it was an absolute pleasure.

Had one experience with Custom Offsets and it was a complete disaster. This is a warning to stay away from Custom Offsets.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about your company from this forum but can’t find you anywhere in Massachusetts or New England area. Am I missing something?
This has been my question for a while. But unfortunately, we don’t have one near us. 🤷‍♂️🙄

Nearest one to me is a couple of hours away, but I sent a PM to @Discount Tire on here. They were awesome in putting together a set of 5 for me - 37 Yokos, Black Rhino wheels, TPM. Showed up at my door well packaged and ready to go. Price was right also.

You can use discount tires online site, they will mount & balance, then ship your tire/wheel set to your door, and often times their online site is cheaper :)
Here's the link

where do you recommend buying wheels? My brother got a complete set of wheels and tires from CO, but that was kinda a nightmare.
I have for several years now used and recommended Tire Rack when shopping for wheels and particularly tires. Have a look 'round on their site and compare their offerings to the other vendors mentioned in this thread. 👍

All sites ask to put in your year make and model of vehicle. When I put in JLUR it only offers the 33’s (285) but I want 35’s(315). I know there is debate for off road use but wondering why you can’t build with 35’s. Should I be worried about that?

Huh, interesting… Do I need to worry about issues once on the Jeep?
Need to do some research as far as what offset/backspacing you will want based on the overall look you're after and more importantly the suspension clearance. Offsets that are too negative will poke out like a skateboard, and offsets too positive will be tucked too far in which might cause suspension/fender contact with a flexed suspension.

Also if you plan to lift your Jeep further take that into consideration as well, the higher you go the further out your wheel needs to be to allow that higher arc of suspension flex.

Thank you for your reply! I think I have the backspacing and offset down but wondering why you can’t put your vehicle info in the search engine of these wheel sites and allow a 315 tire. You have to put in specific options you want in wheel and tires. Does that mean the business won’t stand by your purchase because your going to a 315 rather than 285 that they only allow on their specs of the JLUR? I probably should be asking them this..lol.

Some sites won't let you go beyond the OEM tire size, I would just order the tires and wheels you like and not enter vehicle info, that complicates things most of the time if you already know that a certain tire/wheel will fit fine. A 315/70/17 won't be a problem on a Rubicon, just need the proper offset. Should be fine w/ a 17x8.5 +20, and less positive as you add any additional lift.
