Tire/Rim Advice

I'm moving out Colorado soon and want to have my JK as ready as possible. Already got the lift and working on getting a new front/rear bumbers so I figured I'd need to upgrade to 35"s and get rid of these stock rims but I have no idea which ones would be best for out there? Any suggestions? It's my daily driver/weekend novice warrior if that makes a difference.

cheers
John

I'm saving my nickles for AEV Beadlocks.



Or, a more affordable 16" non-beadlock.

for daily driving, the wheel really won't matter. get what looks best to you, and fits the vehicle and size tire you want to run, and has the correct backspacing.

make sure you get wheels with valve stems deeper in the rim i rip one off every time i go wheelin

Thats ill cause they act a different way with me
I feel like no body wanna playa with me
thats real cause they treat me
like a stain on their clothes
they treat me like i got a red nose

I'm moving to Colorado Springs. Air Force decided that I've spent enough time terrorizing people overseas.

Thanks for the link. I think I'm going to go with the Cragar soft 8s. Still undecided on the tires though.

I like the AEV Pintler wheels too, nice lookin alloy and a deep protected valve stem, and you can get them beadlocked or not beadlocked.

Otherwise, The Rugged Ridge wheel that is coming out soon isn't too bad looking.

They'd look nicer if they cost less....
I like the black with machined lip but the RR price is just too steep for a cast wheel.
