HELP: Time to replace the 36" Super Swampers my Jeep came with...
Hey guys, I'm trying to get the new Jeep in proper order and my dilemma is this, I like the look of the 36x12.5xR16 Super Swampers but it has the stock gears (pretty sure) and remember reading Skyjacker recommends a min. of a 17" rim with that size tire due to the 4" lift. I assume it has to due w sidewall flex and whatnot for handling?
-go down to a 315/75/R16,
neg= more wheel gap and less of an aggressive look.
-Just throw on a new set of 36"s and keep the rims,
neg= potential gear damage? less ideal tire/rim ratio?
-Trade my 16" rims & tires for a set of 17"s + cash and buy 17" tires?
Your opinions are welcomed as I have some time to work this out. I just don't want to make an expensive decision w/o doing a lil due-diligence first.
Thanks a lot !!
