Anyone running 15" or 16" wheels on their lifted WK?

I'm saving up for a Superlift and it looks like I can either stick with my current 17x7.5 wheels and put some 33's on the Jeep or I can get 15x8.5 wheels with 33's for basically the same price.

I don't dislike my current wheels but I think it might be nice to get some new ones. I just don't see anyone running 15" or even 16" wheels out there.

Any pictures?

Thanks!

its very difficult to find a small wheel like those that will fit over the large wk calipers and rotors.

Shoot I didn't think before I posted that and came back to edit it to say "bet it won't fit..those rotors are pretty sizable".

Well that takes care of that.

Thanks Socttina,

someone found a 16" wheel that barely worked...but I think they had to use a spacer or grind the front caliper or something?
