    Running 33x12.50R20 with 20x12 deep lip wheels on stock JKU

    The wheels that I've been wanting to get are Fuel Lethal 20x12 deep lip, however, i have a stock jeep. how bad will it rub and will it look stupid to have that much tire tread showing on a stock jeep? Wheel specs include -44 offset, 4.750 backspacing, and 6.06 lip size. Thanks.

    I would stay away from this combo. Regardless of offset and rubbing and whatnot, you are going to look like this

    I wouldn't even call this mall rated.

    If your going to go with a 33 inch tire, stick with a 17. You'll have so much more tire to protect your wheels on the trail, and it'll look awesome on your stock Jeep. You might have to trim your fenders though to prevent rub.

    I'm not concerned with trails, I barely even drive in the beaches around here.

    I think it all depends on what you are wanting your jeep to look like. I hated the 20s that came with my jeep but the guy I traded with loves them. I prefer 17s because I love the look of the sidewalls and I want to have better traction on the trail. If you like the 20s and are only seeing pavement then go for it, it shouldn't rub on 33s. I wouldn't recommend 35s on stock fenders with no lift.

    He's going to be lucky to look that good. Those are 9 inch wide, he wants 12 wide. Going to look like a low profile roller skate, so this really is a "It's your Jeep, do what you want" kind of thing. The good news is we may get a new pic for the kill it with fire thread. Still, I think most people would find more interest in seeing the results of someone taking a bedazzler to their wife's dildo, than this setup.

    Not to be a complete ass, but most members on this forum are off-roaders. Many are hard core off-roaders. You're not going to get any love for a street build.

    Either way- those will be too wide.

    What I mean is that I actually like gouging beadlock wheels on rocks, and smashing my skid plates. 20x12 fuels wouldn't survive scraping a curb parallel parking.

    I thought all that was part of wheeling. But I agree, 20x12 wheels not the best choice for a jeep unless your running 37s or bigger.

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.
