Rim / tire question.

Hi;
I have a 1995 Wrangler with 15" rims / tires. Would like to upgrade to either 16" or 17". Was told by a friend that in the long run this would stress the vehicle and cause transmission, brakes, etc. to wear out sooner or in fact break as was not made for this size. Person at my local tire place told this was not true and upgrade was no problem. So was wondering if anyone could lend any advice.

Thanks in advance.
Traveler

Re: Rim / tire question.

As long as you stay with the proper size tires and wheels you can upgrade to a 16 or 17 inch size without any problems. Keep in mind as you go with a larger size wheel the tire sidewall height will be shorter to keep the same overall diameter.

You can plug in the year make and model on our web site and it will show you all the wheels or tires that fit.
