Just ordered RRO Lift. Wheels/tires next ??

Hi all,
Just ordered the RRO lift for my 15 limited. It's it's 1 month old present Now I need to look for wheels and tires. Contemplating a couple options and would appreciate some weigh in.

Primary use is daily driver to and from work and shuttling the kids around. I do want to hit some trails here and there but don't think that would be more than 4 or 5 times a year.

What I'm considering so far.

1. Keep stock 18" wheels with larger all terrain tires.
2. New 18" wheels and larger all terrain tires.
3. New 20" wheels and larger all terrain tires.


Any thoughts on my 3 options? I'm open to anything at this point just want to make sure my money is well spent with no regrets!

I'd be curious to see how the stock 18s look. I like the look the best but would be worried they might be tucked in a little too far once it's lifted and the tires are beefier. Wheel spacers could solve that though.

I have the RRO kit and I sized down from 20" stock wheels to 17" wheels to make my 33" tires look even more beefy

Your jeep is on another level though! lol looks awesome

My lift gets here tomorrow, I actually put 275/65 Cooper AT3's on my stock 18's this weekend, love the tires awesome grip.. but I fear they may not look as aggressive when the lift is on.


I will post pix once the lift is on, may need to get wheels with a more aggressive offset.

Thank you. I like the Stock 18's a lot. I almost went with those actually. Yeah post pictures when everything is all set but before you go out and get new wheels, I would say to try some type of wheel spacer to satisfy your fix for a little more of an aggressive stance.

I'm partial to keeping an OE look. My vote would be for the stock 18's with larger tires.
