Help with rim and tire size

Well I can finally do some upgrades to my jku. After saving and my union sign on bonus I am going to be doing a lift and rims and tires. I'm going with a 3.5" lift, and trying to decide on 20" with 35's or 17" with 35's. any pics with that size lift would be be helpful.

I would go for the 17" wheels with 35's, more sidewall.

Re: Help with rim and tire size

not only do 20 inch rims look completely stupid on a Jeep, but they aren't even functional.

I agree with Grendel -I think the tire to wheel ratio of the 17's looks much better on a Jeep than one with 20 inchers

I ended up going 17 only because of trying to stay on budget. I saw a jeep in their shop with 20" rims with 35" tires and it looked great. Anything smaller then a 35 on that rim would look bad.
