In the Market for Wheels and Tires.

Hey everyone,

I will be in the market for new wheels and tires in the spring time or near future and would like to gather information on a good set up with stock suspension, and without the use spacers.

Wheels:
I'm looking to go with a 17 x 9 inch wheel, but i'm a little worried about the width, will that be too wide on stock suspension and will spacers be needed for the width of the wheel ?

One of the wheels I was looking at had a 0 offset. Another one was +15

I may get into some beginner off road trails next year that probably won't stretch the suspension too much, but if it does I can invest in some flatter fenders.

Tire sizes now,

I was looking into a 33x12.50R17 tire, (even a 32 if I had to keep it close to stock) or 305/65R17. Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs or the K02's. (need an all around good all terrain tire for summer and winter driving)

These all might noob like questions and i'm sorry for it, but this will be my first set of wheels on a jeep, I would like to gather all the info I can before my purchase !

My ultimate goal is to make my Jeep look different than it is now with a bit more of a wider stance, without the use of spacers. I was never a fan of the stock wheels it came with but knew eventually i'd be changing them when the time came to do my tires.

Thanks everyone. Have a nice day !

Drew
