Over 10 wide wheels (no pizza cutters)

Not with those 12.50 tires. A 12.50 is already too narrow for a 12" wide wheel because if you try to air down to get better traction like in that snow there you risk loosing a bead. If you do go to a 14" wide wheel please use a 15.50 tire at least.

When you go with wide wheels and tires, does it eat ball joints faster?

There are some rocks here in AZ that would eat your wheels for lunch and leave you crying on the side of the trail.

Yeah, those moon rover wheels would be great at the mall, but the stretch and poke look should stay on the stance cars. But, to each their own.

I cant say that I hate the look of those, but I am all about practicality, and they are definitely not practical or usable

Well this thread definitely makes me happy I don't have anything wider than a 10" wheel. I come in a 9.5" if I remember right. Over 10" just looks retarded IMO, bead poppin, rim eating good time off road though I bet.

Im sure the rocks would eat my wheels up. Thats why you need 2 sets of wheels and tires. I like the wide beefy look. My wide wheels and tires are great for where I live. Lots of beaches and dunes to drive on.

Exactly - you hit the nail on the head. Also, unless you're running 40+ tires, 20" rims just scream poser. But hey, it's their Jeep and they can feel free to look stupid. I wouldn't drive it.

Inner beadlocks for 20x14, I will be able to air down with the best of them.

As far as tearing up my wheels, I most likely will not be putting them against a rock, I plan on buying re-centered hummer wheels for that, until then I have my wheeler vehicle. I am just a fan of the wide stance look for my daily driver.

Cute Samurai.

Oh so you have the Stauns on your JK wheels? Oh but wait you're "going to get" H1 wheels..You should run the Stauns with the H1 wheels, that'd be super-dope bro.

My samurais are cute, both are locked front and rear 6.5:1 tcase gears, EFI 1.616v engine swap in one and EFI 1.3 in the other, Spring over, Yj springs, Missing links, YJ springs, 5.12 tracker gears, custom front housing to use a rear tracker 3rd member, 10 wides, one on 35x14.50 Race goodyear MTRs, the other on 33x12.50 BFG's (built for my dad). They will go anywhere I point them.

Dont have the Stauns or Hummer wheels yet, Stauns will be for my beach runs, beadlocks will be for when my kids are old enough to go actual wheeling in the jeep.

I like Samurais for how light they are but they are scary narrow if on stock axles and lifted enough to run 35s even with 15x10s. There is one around me with 35s on 15x10s. He is open front and rear so it honestly is not that capable but what scares me is that it is very unstable even when mildly off camber due to combo of narrow track width vs CG and very short wheelbase vs CG.

You do realize that in deep sand, for a given tire width, it is better to have more sidewall (this normally translates to a softer more flexible sidewall) and a wheel that is a little narrower vs the tire so you can air down to get a wider contact patch without worrying so much about loosing a bead. My 40x13.50 17 trail grapplers have a nearly 16" wide contact patch when aired down to 9 psi due to the big functional side lugs and groove that allows the side lugs to make contact with the ground and I do not worry much about them coming off the bead at 9 psi even without bead locks because they are a lot wider than my 9" wide wheels. Would they look good on a 17x12 or 17x14? I am sure they would, but they would not be as functional IMHO.
