I have seen this question asked here many times, here and on other forums. The answer is always the same-Why would you want to. I just wasn't ready to give or throw out my brand new BFG 255/75/17 that came on my jeep the stock rubi wheels are another story I call them off set from hell what was jeep thinking with these.
So yesterday I switched the stock tires to my ATX teflon 17x8, 0 offset wheels.
I was thinking they might not look right but I was wrong. I think they look pretty good. I like the tire off road they bit really well in most cases as good if not better than my buddies bigger fatter tires.
So here it is
With the "Free Tires For Life" deal I got with my 2011, it will be a while before I'm ready to upgrade to larger tires. And when I do, I will probably go tall&skinny to save weight, this time around.
However, the silver wheels HAVE to go.
From what I've been told, and read on the forums, these tires will not fit a 17x9 wheel?
I'm having a hard time finding black spoke wheels I like in 17x8. Though I will admit, your wheels look great!
Free tires for life? What the heck is that about? I could've saved $2500 on my last set!
Seriously, though? Offset from hell? What was Jeep thinking? What's wrong with them? Heck, there are many other parts of the JK that need to be complained about before the wheels.
My stock wheel are on Craigs list since early yesterday, I have 700 miles on 4 of them 0 on the 5th 1 and got one call and he offered me $200.00 for them. Must be no one wants them and the dealers get $110 each but I don't know how.
I just wanted to post what stock rubicon tires can look like on aftermarket wheels.
And the dealer i got my 2011 from has a deal going. Do your oil changes and tire rotations there, and they replace the tires free when they wear out.
I know a lot of you do your own oil changes, but with all the other things going on, I don't mind giving them a few $$ to save ME a lot of $$ later.
Oh, and if I decide to go with different sized tires or different brand I get a $175/tire credit toward the new ones. I felt it was worth it...especially when I move up to 35s at almost $300/tire.
