Had our 13' Oscar Mike JKU about a year now. Ready to start Mods. Not a gear head by far. However not a mechanical moron either.
Like most normal working folk. We will be doing everything in steps for one big reason. You get what you pay for. But who the heck can afford to pay for the good stuff all at once? When kids for some funny reason keep asking to eat every damn day! and college expects you to pay them for your kid to be baby sat at age 20! LOL
Anyway the question.
We like the look of 35's. and the performance we are looking for. For what we will be using our jeep for. So that is the end goal for us.
Jeep needs tires now. But jeep not ready for 35's. (Going for the Zone 4" BTW) She wants to keep her factory fenders ( I say for now. She will change her mind I am sure one day)
If we were to buy an Aftermarket wheel that is the proper size for a 35x12.50x17 tire. I am led to believe a wheel that is 17"x 7, 8 or 9" wide. With a 5X5.0 bolt pattern and NOT more then approx. 4.5 BS is a proper spec for a wheel that will fit our tire choice and our lifted jeep. Are we correct so far?
Would a wheel with that spec that is known to be proper for 35" tires. be able to fit most any size 17" diameter tire from our 13 JKU stock tire dimensions, up to the 35" we want? And I must assume lifted or not. That the same wheel would fit stock height jeeps up to the 4" lift we are planning on correct?
Other then ensuring the wheel is of the proper 17" diameter, 5X5.0 Bolt pattern, proper width, and the approx. 4.5 back spacing. Is there any other critical spec's that need to be matched? Or if you have these 3. All the other numbers will fall into place? Or are there even more measurement's I need to be a wear of when picking the proper Wheel spec/size?
Does anyone care to impart real world wisdom or keyboard knowledge upon us. So we can not waste time or money starting off with the wrong wheels from the get go?
Add comments if you must. Info if you will.
We will accept it all. For the only way we are going to get this right. Is by asking here. And the only stupid question. Is the one you never ask.
Thank You all for who may wish to help us.
Lastly if anyone care our game plan is,
1)Summer top and Wheels
2) 4" zone lift
4) who knows by this point. At least the big 3 were addressed! LOL
