    My vote is 17" like most have said for the same reasons

    Your center line is more about your tier size then rim size as a 35 on a 16 inch rim is the same hight as a 35 on a 17 inch rim and the rim is centered in the tier it puts the center line at the same hight

    I have had 16" for years and will be going to 17" on the next set of tires. Tire availability seems to be better in 17" with a better selection, 17" will let me do the big brake kit, as stated before
    Things are real tight at the caliper and rim

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
