Im new to the forum so my apologies if this has been covered somewhere else, i read through nearly every thread with srt8 in it via search button but couldnt really get a solid answer to my question.
Im yet to purchase a WJ as im waiting for something decent to come onto the market, anyhow..... I love the look or 20" SRT8 rims on them and would like to know if its a suitable sized rim to have for offroad use?
Im not talking anything stupid serious in terms of rock climbing, or water bed crossings etc, just the occassional trip on the coast to access decent fishing spots, and the tracks required to get to some of these spots arent that gnarly but definately come across pot holes etc along the way.
Ive never owned a 4x4 before but have always been involved with people/family who have had them and they have always said to never go above a 17" rim when wanting to drive in sandy/boggy locations, the smaller the better due to having a bigger walled tyre. This is because you can let your tyres down more so than on a bigger sized rim and then have less chances of getting a puncture if you hit something hard unexpectedly and create more traction with deflated tyres.
I hope I explained this correctly....anybody care to share their experiences/knowledge on the matter?
When i get a WJ or WG as they are called here in Australia I will fit a lift kit of 2" so thought id mention that incase it matters.
Thanks in advance
