    If you are posting here, there might be a very good chance you will want 37s even if you think you want 35s. That is my story, anyways. I would go 17s

    I would go 17's as well. I first got 35's on 15" wheels and it was a bad choice. Now on 17" wheels.

    Well here is what I did. 2.5" lift, with 17" wheels and 33" tires. One day the lift will be a long arm 4" but that is well into the future. I really debated about going down in wheel size and I am glad I did not. Stick with 17's as there are tons of tire options and no fitment issues. Skip the 33's. My wife just said the other day "yeah, you should have got the 35s." Came out to a 2dr JK with 35s parked next to us, ugh. So budget boost to get by, 17" wheels, and 35s have my vote. Good luck!

    I put a budget boost on my jeep ran 35 for a couple of years and know I want 37's or bigger now. Spend your money on 35's

    Okay. So after tons of input from you guys, a lot of thinking & shopping around.... I'm about to order some 315/70R17's!! According to some online calculations, that'll be 34.4" high and 12.4" wide!!!!
    I'm planning on chopping my fenders and just keeping it off of major trails until December when I can lift it for Christmas, just to avoid any unnecessary rubbing

    Wheel spacers and stock wheels, or aftermarket wheels?

    Just make sure they have the right amount of back spacing. About 4.5 inches would be right. You can get by with 4.75, but most options will be around 4.5 inches.

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.
