New jeep, new rims and tires

So. I have never owned a jeep before. So 2 weeks ago I took the plunge. I bought a new 2015 wrangler sport 2 door 6 speed. Hard top no other options.
After a solid 2 hours of owning it I knew the stock 16 rims had to go.
So after a bunch of research on here, and not wanting to do a lift anytime soon I decided to go with 265/70/17 Hercules Terra trac at ii.
The tires are as quiet as the stock ones. And the fit awesome. I went with mayhem rampage rims with a -12mm offset. I think they look perfect. No rubbing KS anything like that. Let me know what you think. Here are some pics

in two weeks you will be wishing you went to a bigger tire. I am not a fan of white letters out but that is a personal taste thing some like it some don't.

I would surely agree Jadmt, it is part of the upgrade epidemic. Getting bigger wheels and mud tires a never ending upgrade.

is that an all-season tire? would you but another set of snow tires for your ride?

Drive it. Wheel it. Replace if necessary... figure out what kind of terrain you want to wheel and go from there.

If you wheel it you will likely want to go bigger. No hurry.
If you wheel it in the rocks your white letters out will be white walls soon. Just have them remounted. They will probably need balanced by then anyways...
