I think 285/40/22 might be a good option.

Would you say the handling increase outweighs the "rougher" ride? Debating on 20 vs 22 myself but our roads are not the best so Im stuck. Aftermarket 20s weigh less than stock 20s? Obviously 22s look better but what about tire options on both sizes?

I had stock 17" wheels on my Cobra and changed them out for 18" CCW Classic 3 piece wheels. I was blown away how much better it felt and handled

Re: lets see some wheels!!!

The srt suspension is rough stock already , regardless any size of the wheels, that's give you more confident cutting the corner, otherwise is not called performance car.

Because it's not a car, it's an suv. It's a performance suv

Re: lets see some wheels!!!

Got my new Summer wheels/Tires on the other day....what a KICK in the NUTS...my JEEP has a DEATH WOBBLE at 60+ now that makes it undriveable

I took it to the shop today only to find that one rim is BENT and one tire is out of round and will not balance out..my jeep feels like it wants to blow apart if I go faster than 60MPH...I called Audio City and they offered to replace the bad rim(they said it prob got hit by a fork truck fork) but I need to have the tire taken off and the rim sent to Lexani...

WTF...not what you expect when you dish out 3K for a set of rims and tires ...oh well

BTW...the Tires are 305/35/22" Lexani LX-twenty

Sorry to hear that Ajag....that is a pain in the ass. Are they covering all the extra costs of removing the tire etc?

On the upside....that looks freakin awesome. I love those Lexani rims.

Thanks man....I appreciate the compliment....but no...I am bearing the costs of removal and shipping to get this replaced...which I know is easily going to cost me a couple hundred bucks by the time its all done....I'll be swapping my winter tires back on tonight so I can drive this again..

That's kinda crap. They should be taking care of you.....it's their issue. Customer service isn't what it used to be.

I kinda like them that color, but then there's always black. The silver goes with all your chrome accents. If you plan on keeping it that way
