Want new rims and tires HELP

Hi guys I have a '15 GC Overland with the stock 20's. I want to know what my options for rims and tires are. I do not want to go lower than 20's. I ski/snowboard a lot in the winter, I rarely off-road, but love the look of A/T tires. I love the sporty look a lot, being that I came from a g37 to a jeep. So the right question is what rim and tire combo should I get? Since I live in NYC, we get all four seasons so I need all seasons or A/T and I don't want to have to switch out rims twice a year(don't have room for extra rims). I want versatile, good looks, performance, and not too much road noise. Please help!! Thank you lol

Why not just put new tires on the OEM wheels? There are multiple choices for both AT and high performing all-season tires...many threads here in the forum.

Which route would you go with AT or all seasons?

Re: Want new rims and tires HELP

Me? All Seasons for sure. AT tires are actually not the best in snow as compared to an all season that's developed and rated for snow. (snowflake symbol on the tire) A lot of folks swear by Nokians in that respect when they want a year-round tire with excellent snow performance. I don't get much snow here, but the Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus I'm running supposedly has good snow performance. It's probably not as good as the Nokian, however.

I went with the Kumho AT51, think they may meet your criteria. Well rated for snow and look good as well. Noise wise, mine have a pretty hushed whirring sound, hardy noticeable.
ROAD VENTURE AT51 - Kumho Tire USA, Inc.

Think they are a really good value as well. Metric sized have a 50K warranty.
