Opinion on Rims

I Have 22'' rims right now w a 265/35/22 tire on them, debating on upgrading to a 24 inch rim (not going to have rubber-band tires on it tho) Now i know some of the jeep owners hate the big rims on a jeep, but i live in the city and have no need for a lift kit and big mudding tires, its personal preference. Should I go 22s again and throw a slightly bigger tire on it to seem more aggressive or go with 24's (black face and chrome lip) to match all the chrome my 2010 limited has.

Re: Opinion on Rims

what kind of rims are you looking into getting? honestly, if you don't care about a rougher ride, i say go with the 24's..

Re: Opinion on Rims

Im not sure yet, having trouble finding a good rim that sits flush with the body, once i find out the exact type that will fit then i will search for rims and styles, i like a simple rim tho.

Re: Opinion on Rims

if you stick with 22s, go with the SRT8 reps. nice simple and OEM look, but i always loved these
my brother had them on his range rover, 24", they are pricey though

Re: Opinion on Rims

Yeah i like those, i may buy a used pair of chrome asantis or lexanis and have the face powdercoated black. makes no sense to buy them brand new if theyre gonna be sanded down and painted.

Re: Opinion on Rims

Got pics of your current set up? Personaly n I think I'm one of the 3 ppl with 24" rims on a jeep it is going to be hard to find rims dat sit flush I have to do a 24x9 wheel their kool I had them on for 3years n recently sold them because I want to do 22" Rims no lip wheels and with a bigger tire I might do a 265/40/22 to fill in the whel gap also if ur in the city u should drop the jeep to give it a meaner stance n look

Re: Opinion on Rims

what type of driving do you liek to do? I went with 20's so I could have more rubber...so it all depends on your preferences. I have seen 24's on a WK that look but I have also seen them look . Post up some pics of your current setup...
